2010 in Review

31 Dec

Last December, my very good friend Brandy dubbed 2010 as “my year”. At the time, we were thinking it would be my year to find “the one”. Unfortunately, this did not happen, but I believe 2010 to be my best running year! I ran 3 half-marathons and trained for my first full marathon. And while I wasn’t training, I spent a lot of time with friends and family, and I learned to love my job.

January

I trained for the Disney Princess Half Marathon and the NYC Half Marathon.

    It was definitely a big year! I cant wait to see how your marathon goes. I am rooting for you 100% and know youll be a star! My motto for 2011 is “Emerge Something Better” meaning I want to take all experiences good and bad and make myself better on the other side. Sometimes when we hit those unexpected life bumps it can derail us but this year you’ve handled change like a champ and I want to do that too! xoxo Happy 2011!!
