Happy Tuesday. Welcome to the first official Tuesday Topics post! As you may, or may not know, the very popular Tuesdays on the Run link up ended at the end of December. Zenaida and I hated to see the link up go, so we’ve revised it with a slight twist. Here are the rules for the Tuesday Topics link up!
1.) We’ll provide a weekly topic, but feel free to link to any running/fitness related post.
2.) Make sure to comment on both hostesses’ posts.
3.) Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier! Remember to come back for later linkers!
4.) Mention you are participating in this linkup and use the Tuesday Topics Linkup badge in your post.
5.) Provide a link back to each host as well.
6.) Most importantly, if you don’t play nice and are not able to follow the rules, your post will be deleted from the linkup. Thank you!
Join Zenaida and I every Tuesday for this new link up!
This week’s topic: What are you looking forward to this year?
I don’t know about you but I love the start of a new year. To me it just means a whole new year of experiences and opportunities. The start of 2019 was no different for me. I have a feeling that it’s going to be a great year and here are just a few of the things that I’m looking forward to in 2019.
If all goes well, this will be my redemption race. Most of you know I trained for 20 weeks for this marathon in 2017 and had an awful race day experience. It was miserable from start to finish and I don’t want that to be only memory of the Chicago Marathon since I love the city so much. This summer I am planning to go into training with a positive mindset and I’ll also be virtually training with Michelle and Renee since they are running it as well 🙂
Also, it looks like this year’s race is a week later in October (the 13th instead of the 6th) so maybe it won’t be as hot as the year that I ran it!
Starting Orange Theory Fitness
I’m so pumped to start taking classes with Orange Theory Fitness in March! This year I want to do more strength training and get stronger so I’m hoping that their classes will help with that. Also it will be an opportunity to meet new people and possible make more friends as well.
Getting back to reading
One of my 2019 goals is to get back into reading. When I was a kid I would literally read books all the time. I was in the bookstore or the library every week. Of course along the way things happen and new responsibilities pop up so I have a a stack of awesome books just waiting to be read. It’s my hope that I can get through most of them this year. I don’t have a goal to read x number of books this year, but I just want to be more consistent about it.
