2009 sucked. Seriously, it was second in crappiness only to the year of the divorce/bankruptcy fiasco. I'm so optimistic and excited for 2010! It's such a relief to have the anvil of depression that has been pressing on my chest gone (or at least significantly shrunken.) I can breathe.
I stayed up late with the guys on New Year's Eve. We went up to the roof and watched the fireworks over the city! Then early the next morning I dragged myself out of bed and drove down to Palo Alto for a 5k race. It felt really good to make that choice on the first day of the year. I did pretty good too. I ran for more of it than last time, less walking, and I knocked a whole 59 seconds off of my personal record! :)
