In many past years, I've made new years resolutions. I didn't do that last year. I'm not 100% sure why, but it was some combination of feeling overwhelmed with my work obligations, not being in the mood, and recovering from a really difficult 2016 (in general, not resolution-wise). But I'm now ready. I remember Blevins saying of me 2006 cross country season that I was setup for success by not being distracted by a job or a girlfriend and having lost weight. I'm setting myself up similarly for a strong 2018.
