Thanks for all your comments on my last post. For now I am still on blogger but I am back. I know that 2013 is going to be even busier than 2012 but blogging about running has become part of my life and its hard to give that up.
The last two months have been hectic and stressful. My job can be quite stressful at times and even though I use running as my main stress reliever there is nothing like a vacation. For the past 10 days I haven't thought about work, I haven't checked my work email and I haven't set my alarm clock. Every run for the past 10 days has been easy and carefree - I haven't run predawn and I haven't seen 5am on a clock.
So now on the first day of the new year, it is a time to start over. But first here is a brief overview of 2012....
I ran my first marathon
I celebrated one year of marriage with Brian
I saw my best friend get married
I ran 2142 miles (compared to 1302 in 2011)
And I even talked Brian into doing a photo shoot for our Christmas card!
Plus much, much more! And I know that 2013 is not only going to be better but also busier and I can't wait!
I am not really big into resolutions but it is the start of a new year and it is a chance to start over again. My mileage tracking starts from zero now and there are 12 months ahead where anything can happen.
This year I am hoping that I can run just as much as I did last year and enjoy every step.
I am hoping I can read more books because last year I slacked off a bit on reading.
I am hoping that I can continue to eat less cookies and more fruits and vegetables.
I am hoping I can continue to include cross training in my normal routine because I think that helps to keep me injury free!
Just a few things that I am hoping will happen in the coming year!
