    1. spend more time with family
    2. spend more time on the bike

    Do you guys really read less than a book per month? Not trying to be snobby, just curious. I guess I'm the super-nerd of the forum, then.

    FWIW, I read about 35 books per year,and feel like I'm never reading enough.

    /digression

    No resolutions for me. I'm not perfect by any means, but I try and make changes in my life as needed.

    1. Start running again - get half-marathon time below 1:25
    2. Keep commuting
    3. MTB more (season appropriate)
    4. Read more, TV less
    5. Save $$$ since big bike buys are behind this boy.

    I'm a news junkie. I read the Financial Times daily.
    In the middle of Kafka's "The Trial", which is fun. I read fiction very rarely.

    1. Finish a book: It's not that I don't like to read I just have the amazing ability to put down a book I like and never return to it.

    2. Keep up on current events more: thinking about electronic subscriptions to IHT and Washington Post

    3. Finish my current bicycle projects before buying parts for a future project.

    4. Get a new job or go back to school

    5. Finally learn another language
