I am not knocking those who have New Year resolutions. I figure why wait for a new year to start changing things. Setting goals just in general is what I like to do. 2010 brought lots of positive things as well as some bumps along the way but c'est la vie. 2010 was a year of change and growth for me. So to start the new year right I was going to do New Years eve right. Though I went to some parties I didn't want to be out and about driving. Feeling beat from a busy holiday season at the salon I wanted to be mellow. This was the first New Years that I rang in pretty much sober with friends and wanting to go home and crawl in bed. We did the champagne toast but I was thinking of SLEEP! I had bigger plans for New Years day.
This year to kick it off on a good note (waking sans a hangover) I organized an "New Year Anti-Hangover" bike ride. Why ring in the new year feeling shitty and sick from a hangover. A group of friends met up for a ride around the Back Bay borderline Costa Mesa and Newport Beach. We actually took a different route which was a little longer but fun to ride down near the UCI campus where we rang in the new year with protein style burgers from In-N-Out. It was my first time ever trying one of those burgers and the first time in a long time that I ate red meat. Total miles rode with the group was 15 I rode a little more after our ride...
Happy 2011 everyone! I still can't believe how 2010 just flew by.
