A Perspective on This Year

On my birthday, I tend to get nostalgic and like to think about what I've accomplished since my last birthday. This past year has been pretty amazing.  In just a single year, I have managed to:
Run my first half marathon (thanks, Rachael!).
Then run two more (the HeatBreaker Indoor Half and Zooma Half).
Then worked my way up to a 60-mile ride. In a tutu. With two-bite brownies and cocktails.
Belle and I also conquered my first triathlon, placing first in my age group.
I snagged another first-place age group finish at the Karhu 5K.
And completed my first marathon. It was tough, but I did it.
Another first? Our first Valentine's Day at White Castle. Strange, but true.
I also saw lots of great things, travel wise. Tim and I traveled to the Dells and North Carolina. I also made work trips to New York, China and South Korea.

What does the next year hold? Time will tell, but I'm looking forward to another rocking year.

It's so awesome that you did your first half and full in the same year! I tried that in 2009 and got injured. LOL.

Holy cow! I had no idea you packed all of that into one year. Amazing!

WOW you had such an amazing year! When did you start running? You're such a strong runner, and it's so inspirational to see you progress so far in only 12 months.
