Happy New Year – 2012

The ball has fallen in Times Square. 2012 has begun. If the Mayans are to be believed, we should all make the year a good one, it will be the last. Which is probably good advice in any case. Live each year as if it were your last.

I am not one for resolutions, usually. This year, I thought maybe I would try something new. So, here we go.

  • Read the bible, all the way through.
  • A blog post every week.
  • Run 350 miles (not brave enough to commit to 500).

Hopefully, next week’s blog post will not be about how I have abandon these resolutions already. Worse would be no blog post at all which would essentially be the same statement.

To read through the bible in one year I plan to use an iPhone app, Bible. The app offers access to a variety of reading plans. I am going to pick one of the one year plans. I am leaning toward an historical approach, reading events in the order they occurred. But, I have not decided yet.

I already use a Garmin Forerunner 405cx on my runs. Garmin Connect provides the ability to set goals. I have already set an annual goal for 2012 of 350 miles.

To track my blog posts… Watch this space for further developments.

Happy New Year. Welcome 2012.
