2013 Was A Good Year

Posted Jan 06 2014 7:47am

I feel like I’ve been waiting for 2014 to come for what feels like forever now.  I also feel like I wrote off 2013 before it even began.  It’s not that anything bad happened in 2013, I just wanted to get it over with.  For one I hate the number 13- It’s unlucky and I’m superstitious and secondly- I’ve just been waiting for 2014 to come because this is they year I get married!!

But, I decided to actually sit and look back on this year, I realized something.  It was a Good Year.  Despite the fact that I call it boring and uneventful, that is actually far from the truth and here is why…

I kicked off the year by running in a 200 mile relay race from Miami to Key West with one of my best friends

Which only made our friendship THAT much more amazing….

I ran… a lot… and completed my NYRR 9+1 program, giving me guaranteed entry into the 2014 NYC Marathon

Race #9 Completed!


I surprised myself by improving my half marathon time in my favorite race to date…IMG_1810

And then I had my worst half marathon time ever, but I ran it in Nashville, TN in the POURING RAIN and surprisingly had a lot of fun doing it!

My best friend FINALLY came home from the Peace Corps in Tanzania and she came to visit me for a weekend and was with me when I picked my wedding gown!


I somehow got on a bike and did a 40 mile bike tour with Jimmy through the five boros of NYC


I took some amazingly fun trips with jimmy to visit friends and family…
