2012 Year in Review, Part 2

Posted Jan 03 2013 6:54pm

If you missed part 1, check that out first!

June 2012

I found my future wedding shoes !


Matt and I started and then graduated from the Foundations CrossFit course at CrossFit Dupont. This meant we were ready to join the real classes!


I spent a few   wonderful   days in the Outer Banks on a beach vacation with Matt and his family!


July 2012

Matt and I spent a weekend at our friends Tim and Lindsey’s lake house in VA! I tried wake boarding for the first time. :)


Matt and I and our friends Tom and Janice did a White Water Kayaking + Winetasting adventure. (It was a LivingSocial deal)


My high school BFF Jenny turned 30 – we celebrated with a wine tour . :) (Although we later found out that she had JUST found out a couple days before this she was pregnant and had to have her husband drink all her wine! Fail!)


Matt turned 30 years old! I threw him a party with the help of some friends. And yes, his shirt says “30 and Dirty.”


August 2012

My bridesmaids and my mom hosted a beautiful bridal shower for me.


I had my hair and makeup trial for the wedding! So fun.


I completed my 12 week hospital dietetic internship.  


I spent a couple days relaxing in Bethany Beach, DE with my friend Hilary.


I traveled to Boston for the Healthy Living Summit and spoke on a panel about how to work with brands as a blogger (click for a recap of our session!).


I started my first of three mini-fall internships – this one with a private practice RD for a month.


I spent a weekend at the beach in Cape May, NJ with my college BFFs Turner and Kris.


September 2012

Matt and I went night kayaking on DC’s Potomac River. Another LivingSocial deal. :)


I returned to Chapel Hill to visit with friends and hit my old favorite haunts!


Matt ran the Tough Mudder with his buddies and shared an awesome recap. Totally want to do this race this year…


I started my second of three mini-dietetic internships – this one at Wellness Corporate Solutions.


I turned 30 years old and celebrated my entrance into a new and slightly less competitive age bracket for running races. ;)


And then I ran the Clarendon Day 10k and set a new PR (that still stands): 49:43!


And then later on the same day of the race, I had both a bachelorette wine tour and a 30th birthday after party – ummm, yeah. Awesome, but you can imagine how I felt the next morning. ;)


Matt and I did a practice session with our wedding photographers!


October 2012

I had my last day of work at my second mini dietetic internship.

Last minute wedding prep!


October 13, 2012 – Matt and I got married ! :)


Here are the wedding-related recap posts (I know I owe you one final one about our reception):

Matt and I went on a mini-honeymoon (mini-moon!) to Fort Lewis Lodge in the mountains of VA. It was wonderful: recap 1 , recap 2 , recap 3 .


One week after the wedding, I ran the Army 10 Miler for the second time.


Then it was back to work – I started my third and final mini-dietetic fall internship, this one with another private practice RD.


I met Bart Yasso!



November 2012

I finished my last dietetic internship and submitted my first draft of my masters paper to my UNC advisor .


Matt and I ran in the inaugural LivingSocial Glow in the Dark 5k Dance Party.


I shared 4 healthy, quick, and portable breakfast ideas. (More of this to come for lunch and dinner!)


I traveled to Boston for a Reebok Eventand was honored to meet (and interview) Julie Foucher ! (click on the link to hear how she balances med school and CrossFit !)


I traveled to CT for a fun blogger girl’s weekend at Mohegan Sun.

I ran an old favorite – the Alexandria 5 Mile Turkey Trot – and set a new PR (that still stands): 38:34!


Thanksgiving 2012 in pictures.


I traveled to UNC to present my masters paper and then, after 3.5 years of nonstop work – I received my Masters of Public Health in Nutrition from UNC-Chapel Hill . :) Anne, MPH!!


December 2012

My classmates and I said a final farewell to UNC Chapel Hill. Very bittersweet!


I was included in a list of “foodies and drinkies” to follow on Twitter in the December issue of Runner’s World Magazine. So honored (I’m on the bottom right)!


Matt and I went on a two week belated honeymoon to Costa Rica! (Many more recap posts to come!)



And there you have it! 2012 in review. As you can tell, it was a crazy busy and full year with all sorts of major life events – moving, getting married, finishing my masters degree and dietetic internships – and in between the major life events were all sorts of trips and daily adventures, too. Of course, it wasn’t all good – no year ever is – but in stressful times I focused on staying active and spending time with those who really matter in my life. As far as I’m concerned, you should never underestimate the power of a good workout or a long talk with a best friend.

Here’s to 2013 – cheers. :)

What was the best or biggest thing that happened to you in 2012?
