Welcome to Mo365: The 2011 Experiment
I want to chronicle and generate ideas on my experiment this year: to do something new thing every day. Anything from trying a new food, going to a new place, meeting a new group of people, learning a few new words in a different language, learn a new skill, (attempt to) learn a new instrument, etc.
In short, I want to have 365 new experiences next year.
I'm interested in seeing how this evolves over the course of the year. I will need your help to hold me accountable and suggest new experiences! = )
Also, I really have to send special thanks to my friend Alicia for inspiring me to take this on in the first place.
My friend Laura has adopted this as her MOTTO. I totally love it...
This is how I feel about running races. I felt this way after my first 5K, 10K, 1/2 marathon, and full marathon:
"When I first started doing races, I didn't understand why people did them. I thought it was boring. But give it a try. If you're new to the sport, or maybe even an infrequent runner, try it. Once you do it and finish a race, there's such a feeling of self-accomplishment—that's really been one thing I've taken away from doing running events. Because it's just you, and you have just yourself to credit for doing what you did. It's always a great feeling afterward, because you know you did it all yourself." -Mike Bettes, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel
My friend Karen came across this video the other. She thought it fitting for all of us pushing past our comfort zone:
That's it for today. Things have been so busy with school, work, running, working out, and commuting, but I can never forget to touch base with my fellow workout buddies! Also, feel free to drop a line to let me know how y'all are doing. Inspiration comes from all sources and I want you to inspire me. = )
All the best,
FFF Diva Mo <3
