Quick thoughts on 2016

2016 is coming to a close and I’m pretty excited about 2017.

I didn’t accomplish everything I wanted to in 2016. I had a less than stellar finish at Augusta 70.3. I attempted and failed an Ironman in November. I had some medical issues that put me on the sidelines for a little bit, but I’m making a comeback.

Watching our team Surge today, this was on a slide. My honest answer is – No. I didn’t push as hard, I didn’t train as hard, I didn’t work as hard as I needed to. Did I accomplish some goals? Absolutely! Just last week I PR’d my half marathon time.

2016 wasn’t my year, was it yours?

I really wanted it to be my year…in my head. My actions proved otherwise. I did a lot of sitting, being lazy, unmotivated, unfocused. I gained 20lbs. But I’ve also done a lot of thinking. Opening my mind to new ideas and new plans for my life.

2016 was our first year to live as homeowners and we took our back yard from a jungle to…less of a jungle. It’s not perfect, but I am to blame as I was training for my full Iron and I didn’t dedicate a lot of my time to housework.

So my mental priorities didn’t match my priorities I acted on. I have more goals for 2017, but those are for the next post.
