2012: A year in review

Simply put, I have had the most awesom-mest of years!

2012 cemented my status as a long distance runner and allowed me to do so while still holding down a challenging full time job and being a wife, and mother to two, very active (and super adorable) boys.

Ready for Christmas with my side of the family.

I ran my first costumed race.

I ran a half marathon PB to start the spring racing cycle.

I ran my first and second 30k races this year and managed to enjoy both despite the challenges that they brought. And I enjoyed tweeting during races!

I raced through my town and enjoyed the most memorable race moment ever:

Just past the 10k mark at the Milton Half Marathon.

I made new friends

I ate a lot of great food (just look for my WIAW posts)

I ran a very tough and character building half marathon

 I ended the race year with a bang, pacing Ali through her first half marathon!

And finally, last but not least, not at all

Total KM: 2,100
Approximate time: 212 hours running.

Total enjoyment.

All the best to you and yours in 2013.


  1. What an awesome recap!!!! Great highlights and I know I read the recap but I never knew that was your first marathon! CONGRATS :) I hope to become a marathoner in 2013! .....and I hope you'll be up for the pacing on that one too ;)
