I have a funny relationship with goals.  I really love them.  But I have a hard time doing things without them.  Like the last two weeks?  I suppose I could've started practicing my violin more consistently or pulling out my cookbooks, but somehow, if they're not written down, I have a hard time making my goals happen.  Fear not - they're finally pondered and written and, you know, set in stone.  So I hope!

Do a monthly resolution check on the 30th of the month

·      Run a race (either 10K or half marathon, or both)
·      Prepare one recipe from a cookbook each week
