January 1, 2012: Before settling on a New Year’s resolution today, take inspiration from 57-year-old former Rye resident Wendy Booker.
Wendy’s resolution for 2012 is to leave New Year’s Day on a 17-day ski and sled expedition to the South Pole. Her 2011 goal was the North Pole, which she completed in April, and in the spring she will take on Greenland, the last step in the Polar Trilogy.
All of these goals represent the resolution Wendy made for herself in 1998, one that would dictate the rest of her life. It was 1998 when Wendy was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis.
