2017 has felt like a blur and a whirlwind. I have felt disorganized and caught up short by utterly expected life events and pummeled by unexpected world events. I’m not the only one– We have all been buffeted about, and many of us battered by what’s unfolded this year.
- March cycling trip to Arizona with Janet, Steph, and Kathy
- Early June Bikes Not Bombs charity ride in Boston (with whomever wants to join me)
- Late July PWA Friends for Life charity ride in Toronto with Samantha, Sarah and friends
- Early September (Labor Day) weekend bike ride with Rachel to VT from Easthampton MA (and back, too)
- Go to yoga twice a week every week
- Ride trainer twice a week every week (yeah I need more than that, but I am committing to this right now)
- Ride outside once a week, weather permitting, or xc ski or snowshoe, different weather permitting
- Do everyday movement on teaching days– e.g. park far (like, really far) away from office every time I drive to campus
- Track all of this activity honestly
- Reflect and write on how things unfolded compassionately
So that’s what I’ll be doing. It won’t go smoothly. These things never do. But it will go, and I will spend time in it, record it, reflect on it, and go back to it, over and over again. Repetition is the soul of life.
I know that’s not the saying. But it seems true enough.
What about you? What do you want from your body and your activities and your movements and your timelessness in 2018?
