A New Year: Make the Days Count

I think New Year's Day is really important for everyone. For one day of every year, we get to formally clean the slate, proclaim to the world that we'll accomplish really amazing things in the new year and then we get to take action on those goals.

One thing that I love about Twitter and all social media, is that it holds us accountable to ourselves and the goals we set. We get support from those around us as soon as we say I AM GOING TO DO THIS THING. JUST WAIT! We get really genuine support from tons of people that don't even know us - not really. That's pretty amazing.

So - make the days count and say your goals out loud. Tweet them. Write them. Yell them. Tell strangers. Tell families. Remind yourself every day that you are worth the work it takes to achieve the life you want. Writing this blog post is a reminder to myself. Good luck to all of you in the new year and I will be a cheerleader for anyone that needs it. Now - go put in those miles or write page one of the book you've been plotting out for the last five years. DO IT. 


  1. Hi there, I actually found your blog through a comment thread on twitter.
    It looks like last year was a great one for you. Congrats on your 4 miler victory, that is badass! Whoever wrote the newspaper article about it was a bit of a d-bag. I would have been pissed too.
    I love the "make the days count. Don't count the days". I am jumping around a bit here but also enjoyed your most recent post about the running savings account. These darn races are so expensive! Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and keep up the great work.

    1. Thanks so much! The "bit of a d-bag" comment made me chuckle. :)
