A new year and a new word. I am definitely looking forward to this year. These past couple of years have been interesting; hopefully, things will pick up and become more exciting.
Here are a few things I am looking forward to this year:
❇️ Travel. My last trip was in February 2020 to run the Publix Atlanta Half Marathon. This year I am planning a trip to NYC and Washington, DC. I am hoping too to travel to Mexico with my mom. Once I get more information about a Summer program I did last year, then I will book our flights. The plan is to stay there for 2-3 weeks.
❇️ Read more books. Not because of my goal, but because I like to read.
❇️ Running more races. Thinking about it makes me more excited. I would like to run a race in all distances except the marathon. Hopefully, when I finish my race in Washington, DC, I can start working again with a coach. I would love to PR in one or two race distances.
❇️ Doing more fun things. It is all about balance. I’ve been staying in touch with friends via text every day. I know ideally, it will be best to meet in person but it isn’t always possible. At least we are having some good conversations and laughs. Anyway, going back to doing more fun things, I love musicals and would like to see 1 or 2 this year. Chicago is a great city with many things to see and do. This Summer I would like to drive downtown or take the train to sightsee or just hang out.
❇️ The end of the school year. Is it too early to think about it? I do like my job. Teaching is fun. I enjoy my students, but everything else makes it so hard. We give so many assessments and it is just ridiculous. Our students are still behind (we do not need an assessment to tell us that) and that time could be better used for teaching.
Next week is a FREE topic. Feel free to write about any running-related topic. We hope you’ll link up with us!
