The first three months of 2014 have come and gone, and I'm happy to say that I'm seeing improvement and progress from all the hard work I've done. I've listed below the big wins I've seen so far, but I don't know if it paints the entire picture. Wanting to improve is a common theme. Everyone wishes they were better at what they do. But really putting numbers on it, tracking your goals, and admitting what you want takes a bit more. You can't come out and say that you're going to do something to everyone you know if you're not willing to back it up. Or, willing to fail in front of everyone.
In my case, I'd rather fail trying than pretending I'm OK with things as they are. Well, we shall see how it all turns out...

I didn't know what it was at first. I mean, I do love that race. And, I had such a good time running it. But that wasn't it. It was an expensive photo to buy if I really wanted it. Was it worth it? Well, I think after a few weeks I figured it out. I liked that photo for a very specific reason. When I look at that picture, I know, really know, that I look truly happy in it. And, I wasn't sure how I felt about that at first. But now - I really like it. It's proof that I was really happy. And that makes me happy.
Thank you for reading.
