Hey friends! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and holiday season! I took a much needed break over the holidays to be with family and friends and just RELAX, which was great! I’m sure most of you are sick to death of all the holiday recaps, so I’ll just show a few photos from the last week or so to catch you up…
my annual Christmas morning run:) it’s one of my personal favourite Christmas traditions, and the perfect start to my Christmas morning, even if it did rain the whole time
my contribution to the Christmas Day desserts: vegan salted caramel torte! It was a hit!
I think my brother was trying to take a photo of my aunt and uncle but clearly I had to go and ruin it. They flew back to New York a few days ago and I miss them already!
an evening spent in the recording studio
lots of lovely muddy runs! my poor Kinvaras before and after my run; they’ve been in the washing machine three times this week! good thing I love the mud…I’m definitely a cross country runner at heart:)
lots and lots of games played with the family. this where I got my competitive spirit from. I am the worst at Pictionary (I can’t draw to save my life!), but I am reigning champion at Articulate and Killer Scrabble. What a cool kid I am.
London’s New Years fireworks were beyond amazing this year!! I love this city so much, and I’ll be sad to leave it this year!
Happy New Years hangover! Except I added in a Step 2.5 which involved a team training session. That was interesting, but thankfully Coach made it slightly easier than usual to let us those of us who are older off the hook a bit
watching lots and LOTS of Grey’s Anatomy on my new laptop. I am beyond addicted. It’s ridiculous how many episodes I have watched recently.
on of my goals for 2013. only I’m not just aiming to crush just ONE personal best…I will crush ALL of them this year.
What was the highlight of your 2012? The Olympics, without a doubt. The atmosphere here in London was just incredible, and I got to see the athletics and both the marathon events. I’ll never forget it. Turning 18 also has been so fun, and I’ve had the best time being able to go out! Balancing that with my running has taken a little adjustment, but I’ve switched my weekly rest days to either Saturdays or Sundays which means I can go out on Friday/Saturday nights and not worry about it
Did you make any goals or resolutions for 2013? What are you most looking forward to this year? I am looking forward to working out where I’m going for university (I may be heading across the Atlantic…) and definitely to my music tour in Italy this summer! I’ve been to Venice briefly before on a previous tour but never to anywhere else in Italy, so I’m really looking forward to it! And I’m excited for what will hopefully be a great year of running!
