So, yea. This post was due well over a week ago, but between the holidays and my obsession with The Hunger Games Triology, I've been WAY too busy to set aside 20 minutes to blog. I wish I could blame it on spending way to much time logging miles in the 'ole Asics, but sadly I've been battling stupid non-running-related injuries which have kept me sidelined for the past few weeks.
But alas, my holidays were splendid. They were spent with my favorite people and I was reminded how blessed I am. Kind of like this past year.
2011 was pretty amazing, to say the least.
We saw lots of snow at the beginning of the year.
A lot of time was spent with friends.
I rocked some awesome races:
Josh and I spent my birthday in Hot Springs, hiking and staying at our family's lake house.
We celebrated our 1 year anniversary!
My mom got a pool.
And we got a puppy!
At the beginning of the year I proclaimed my love for new year resolutions and set a few for myself. Lets see how I faired...
1. Run a 5K, 10K, and half marathon; and set a new PR
Partially accomplished: I completed a 5k and a half marathon and set personal records in both. Wahoo! But I never even signed up for a 10k.
2. Save 20% of our yearly income
Done! Despite the cost of moving, we were still able to keep our savings at 20%, with $8 surplus.
3. Take a photography class
Complete fail: Never gave this more than a second thought.
4. Become more confident in my sewing abilities.
Between baby showers and the need to decorate my house, I consider this partially completed. I suppose you can say I am more confident in my abilities, I still have no real clue what I am doing.
Taking this time to reflect over 2011 has me even more excited for the possibilities of this new year. Stay tuned for the epic resolutions of 2012!
