The year has finally ended. I know you have probably all seen this video by now but it really sums up my year in a wonderful moving way ;)
So this year has been amazing. I said last year I wanted to do somethings like run a half marathon, lose more weight, and I think I met most of those goals! When I look at myself in that video I see the excitement I had, how far I had come and how far I still wanted to go.
My body changed a lot this year. I not only became a half marathon runner 6 times, I also became a marathoner! I ran my fastest half marathon this year in 1:46. Pretty damn good feeling. Then I has my fastest 5K ever when I ran one in September in 21:04. I ran a marathon in 3:46, that was probably the best day for me in 2011. When I crossed that finish line I felt truly unstoppable.
I made some amazing friends. I have come to have some close friends who have gotten me through some tough moments and tough runs. I feel truly blessed to all of you in 2011 and you know what, we will make 2012 even better!
I have also ended my long career in retail! I have a wonderful new job that is starting this coming week and I am so excited about it!
I also discovered a love for living a more paleo lifestyle and doing crossfit. I learned a lot about my body and how it reacts to different types of nutrition. I finally feel like I have a good grasp on what I perform best with.
To usher out 2011 I ran a marathon today :) I headed out to Castle Island and it was great. I had a hard time getting going on my run but it turned out to be worth sticking it out for.
Here are just a few pictures from 2011 that I love :)
I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year's!!!!!!
