I’m not materialistic. I’m not fashion savvy. I am probably horribly out of style, and I have never felt the need to own many fashion accessories (although I do enjoy a good quality handbag). I have this year, however, discovered that I do love me some bling! My friend, Erica, and I started 2014 with a New Year’s resolution to run a race every month. We would only run said monthly race if there was a medal to be had for finishing.
I have NEVER made a New Year’s resolution that has lasted longer than three weeks into the new year. To avoid feelings of inadequacy and self-disappointment, I usually don’t even make resolutions. Also, I am not a runner. I am more of a plodder-a-longer. My lack of athletic prowess made the yearlong resolution even more frightening. With Erica’s coercion though, I agreed to this seemingly daunting challenge, hoping I could at least make it to spring.
It’s November, and I’m still going!
