Some people use their blogs to announce what they plan to do, to put it out into the world and for everyone (who reads their blog) to see and hold them accountable to it.
Me, I'm going to post what I'm not going to do. So that if later I start frothing at the mouth you all can stop me and say, "Hey Annie, now wait a minute. Didn't you swear not to do this?"
I'm not going to train for a marathon next year.
Oh, I want to, I want to.
To repeat: I am not going to train for a marathon next year.
No? Really? Maybe just a little one?
I am NOT going to train for a marathon next year.**
I make no promises abut 2014, however.
*And no, I'm not pregnant, either. I swear, I've been getting asked that question a lot lately.
** I hardly need to explain why not, given that I haven't even managed to get a simple blog post written in the past two weeks despite having plenty to talk about. I'm thinking I might try having balance and simplicity be my mantras for next year.
