I can't remember where I got this from so apologies for not crediting it but I thought it nicely sums up my view on 2011.
It's been a long tradition in my family to look back over the old year on Hogmanay and think about the highs and lows. And on the surface it would appear that 2011 wasn't a successful one for me. I didn't get to compete in a triathlon, I didn't finish Boot Camp, I didn't do my half marathon, I didn't sell the house and I didn't get a job. I had whooping cough, then got an E Coli ear infection, I developed a knee injury and my back is constantly playing up. But a lack of success in these things certainly doesn't mean it wasn't a great year.
I love tri training. I've said before, it suits me. I can work round the injuries. I love my house so still living here isn't a hardship. Someone will fall in love with it just like I did. And as for the job situation, watch this space ;-)
Thanks to some great people I do see how wonderful my life is and will continue to be. In 2012 I will continue to challenge and push myself in ways I never imagined I could.
Happy New Year! May 2012 bring you everything you deserve xxx
