I have a lot of optimism about 2014. Maybe that’s because of how amazing 2013 has been.
The stand out moment obviously being marrying my best friend in September.
I have SO much to be thankful for when I look back on 2013 . . . and I hope to spend some time today reflecting on that and remember how blessed and amazing of a year this has truly been.
While taking that moment, I want to thank you all so much for accepting me and jumping into this journey with me. Starting this blog was something I have wanted to do for years, and I am so thankful that I finally started it when I did.
I am excited about a lot of things in 2014 (hello HONEYMOON IN FEBRUARY), but something I specifically looking forward to is where this little blog-o-mine will take me in the next year. As I’m learning about this whole blog-world that I love so much, I am finding new and improved ways of doing things (hello new obsession with instagram). I hope you all stick around for the ride in 2014, wherever we may go 🙂
Cheers to a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
Good last morning of 2013 morning.
I started the morning off with a quick run that took some SERIOUS self-talk to begin.
Workout of the Day: 4 miles easy
- 1 mile warm up (6.3)
- Kept 6.3 pace through out, but with one minute at 8.0 every 5 minutes.
This was a bit of a drag of a run, but I couldn’t end 2013 without a run, could I? Speaking of running. . .
2013 Running Goal
I mentioned a little while back that one of my very few goals for 2013 were to hit 1000 miles in 2013. When I looked at my progress in late October, I thought I had NO chance. I was still a ways out and was lacking motivation. Then Pile On The Miles happened and I not only found motivation, I was having some of my highest mileage weeks ever.
Now here I am in the last week of December and I just had a 32.5 mile week. According to daily mile, I am ending 2013 at 1,019 miles. And I couldn’t be more proud of myself. I set to back-to-back half marathon PR’s, and found a new passion for running through tough races, injuries, and cold days.
I can’t wait to see what 2014 beings me 🙂
Question of the morning: Did you meet your goals for 2013
