Happy New Year

So, perhaps "stop procrastinating" should be at the top of my list of goals seeing as this whole blog is dedicated to the resolutions and changes I am taking on this year, but it's being posted in February.

Anyway...I am here to announce my journey in the year 2012 with goals revolving around the numbers 26 (my age) and 12 (for the year).

I plan to fill this with pictures and anecdotes as I make my way through a rather hearty list of accomplishments. In this, there will surely be some laughs, most likely some blood, and perhaps a couple tears. Who knows, there might even be some romance!

And if you'd like, I invite you along on this adventure as I attempt to make a new man of myself, or rather a better man. (People say I'm pretty great as is, but there's always room for improvement, right? Right!)

With all of that said, I present to you my list of 26 in twenty 12!

- Run the equivalent distance of 26 marathons (681.2 miles)
- Run a marathon - 26.2 miles
- Complete 120 workouts (non-running)
- Gain 26 lbs (up to 196 - preferably in lean muscle)
- Read 26 books
- Write 12 short stories
- Attend 26 cultural events, art museums/exhibits, concerts etc.
- Create 26 art projects or crafts
- Go on 12 adventures
- Volunteer 120 hours
- Raise over $2,600 for charity
- Go on 26 dates
- Save $12,000


  1. Welcome to the blog world and it all seems doable to me. I am happy to be one of your followers and I can't wait to see your new adventure through photos and words. Hopefully my food blog will help with the gaining 26 lbs lol

    1. No doubt your food will help! I'm probably going to be eating a lot of taco salads. I love them, and they're so simple, even to make for a single guy. But for whatever reason it didn't occur to me til I saw your post. Sure this will be happening frequently. Thanks!

  2. This is awesome. I'm totally in.

  3. Oh, I love it. I've been working on my list too! Would you mind if I borrowed some ideas? Good luck to you Zach!!

    1. By all means, take some ideas. Use them, twist them, have your way with them. They'll be grateful to travel beyond this little page.

  4. I love blogs :D Happy to be following, it's been so long since we've talked or seen each other!
