If you are crazy enough to be up New Year's morning and don't want to wear yourself out before going to the Rose Parade on Monday, why not run a 5K? Hell, make it harder on yourself and run it in the sand. Then take a dip in the ocean for a Polar Bear Swim to cool off. Think we're kidding? C'mon! Los Angeles doesn't take a calorie-burning day off!

Resolution Festival, a first year event taking place at the Santa Monica Pier, is set to make sure your 2006 goals are off to a healthy start. In addition to the aforementioned events, you can walk 10,000 steps, visit the free Expo, and get 25% off All-Day-Ride tickets at the pier. If you need a little more inspiration to get off your butt... the festival producer's 2005 resolution was to take more risks. So he self-funded the entire event, which is Sunday Jan 1 starting at 9am. (Ed note: fees to participate range from $35-$85 per event. If you're motivated, you can always jump in the ocean or go for a run for free.)
