Hello 2012!

Happy New Year to everyone (even if you’re not quite here yet)!  As I don’t have any resolutions, I wanted to take a couple of minutes to focus on important happenings in January (apart from spending time with my family until the 5th)!

Me, gran and Julian

During my weekends I’ll be taking an Exercise Theory course (the final exam will be in February).  This is a necessary course before I apply to do my ETM (exercise to music) course, which will enable me to teach fitness classes.  This is something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, but unfortunately I haven’t really had the spare cash until now (and even now, I’d be lying if I said I had money to burn).

In addition, January holds a couple of mention-worthy dates.  Firstly, the Cancer Research UK Race for Life will be announcing their race dates for 2012 in the New Year, so it would be a good idea to get in early.  Another important running date is January 16th, when entries open for 2 of the races I hope to do this year.  These are the Baker Hughes 10k in Aberdeen and the Xodus Ythan Challenge.  I’ve done the 10k 3 times before, but I’ve always managed to miss out on the Ythan Challenge.  I’m told entries are filled within a couple of weeks, so I’ll be ready to enter on the 16th!

I will also be celebrating my 4th anniversary with my boyfriend in January – isn’t he a lucky boy!
