We’re gettin’ ready to kick the year 2013 to the curb.
Gone forever. Another year older, stronger, wiser, and more grateful. Grateful for life, for you, our clients and for those who don’t know that they need us and our fitness services…yet.
The end of the year means lists. This year, my wife and I created our favorite top 10 movie lists. Lists are fun. They’re a way to share a little about yourself with others and learn a little about others. Lists make us slow down and reflect. They make us smile.
Try it. Next time you’re in a comfortable setting with a friend, ask them to give you their top 10 movies.
I’ll bet they smile.
Here then, are my top 3 fitness related random things from 2013.
