February 29th New Year's Resolutions update

1. Eat pie - I've been failing at this one a surprising amount.  Living alone, and 3,000 miles away from my usual pie chef, has left me rather pie-less.  I'll make sure to get some in the near future, though.
2. I was able to start full-on running two and a half weeks ago, and since then I've done 23.5 miles.  I'm allowed to do 11 miles this week, and increase that a mile a week.  I'm going to see how long I can keep that increase going.  The first couple weeks will be easy, but when it gets to 20-30 miles a week, that'll be tough.
3. I haven't really lost any weight yet (although I haven't really gained any, either) but I've been working out more than I used to, so odds are the balance has moved a bit more towards muscle as opposed to fat.
4. I haven't climbed much, but I started going to a parkour gym three or four times a week, so I'll count that.
5. I haven't done much photography recently.  Definitely failing at that one.  It's tough to take pictures when it's dark by the time I get home from work.
6. I'm staying relatively organized so far.  Could be better, but it's a lot better than my living spaces in the past.
7. I've written a bit.  Wish it'd been more, but it's more than I was writing, so it's a start.
8. I've done a fair amount of drawing and I think improved a little.  Still needs a lot of work, though.
9. No community service yet.  I need to work on that.
10. Not sure how much of a better person I am, but given that I don't know many people out here, I've at least been able to avoid being much of a bad person.
