How To Improve Your Mental Golf Game

About a year ago I started working with a new golf instructor, Bill Longmuir. He’s a phenomenal teacher and has completely changed my swing and the way I play the game. When I played my first (and only to date) tournament last February, the one piece of advise he gave me was to trust my swing. When I get out there to play, do not think about the things he’s taught or the positions I’m supposed to be in – just go out, clear my mind as best I can, and swing.

Happy new year! I hope you said goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017 in style! I always find the week between Christmas and the new year the biggest blur. I don’t know what day it is, where I’m supposed to be, or what I’m supposed to be doing. It’s almost blissful not having a schedule.

Yesterday was my 9th anniversary to the Mr! Three countries, six houses, two kids, about a hundred or so fish, and one crazy dog later, I am so very grateful. We never make a big deal about our anniversary, partly because of the business of the holidays and partly because I’m not entirely sentimental. However, this is the last year in single digits, so I’m thinking next year we’ll have to go big. Travel is a must. I’ve been coming up with ideas for quite awhile, but haven’t decided on the exact place yet. Let me know where you’ve spent your favorite anniversary, I could use a few more ideas;)

We are going out tomorrow night for New Year’s Eve, followed by a much needed recuperating brunch (sunglasses required) at a fantastic seaside cafe with friends; both a bit of a tradition for us.

I am so excited for the next two weeks. We just arrived in Telluride, CO, will be here for the next week, and then off to NYC for the holidays. I absolutely adore Telluride already, and the only activities we’ve done so far are dog sledding (amazing!!!) and snowmobiling.

This weekend I’ll be running my fourth half marathon. Yay! When I first started training for this race, I was hoping for a PR, which would put me under two hours, but I’m not feeling quite as confident it’ll happen this time around. The past month has been insanely busy, my husband was away 10 days (making it tough to get out in the morning to run), I was away another four, and so some of my training was put to the side. I feel confident I’ll finish the race comfortably, but my under two hour dream may have to wait until 2017 (sad face). Anyway, it’s my first time taking part in the big island race, Run Barbados, so I’m really excited to finally be able to participate in this event!
