It is with no doubt that I can claim 2011 as one of the most life changing yet amazing years of my life.
Not only was it a year for big life changes, but it was a great year for personal achievements as well. It’s been one heck of a ride, and I’ve enjoyed every single minute.
Here’s a look back to my top events of 2011.
New Year’s Eve proposal to “ring” in 2011.
[December 31, 2010/January 1, 2011]
This race has been dubbed “the toughest half marathon in the Northwest”, and now I know why [it’s pretty much 8 miles straight uphill, and a very intense downhill to follow].
[April 16, 2011]
I married my best friend and the love of my life.
[July 23, 2011]
[October 9, 2011]
I quit my job, packed my bags and moved across the country with my husband from Idaho to Georgia and began my life as a new military wife.
[October 31, 2011]
I ran my first race [Soldier Half Marathon] after arriving in Georgia and had a personal best! 2:21:35
[November 11, 2011]
Races ran: 8 [1 marathon, 3 half’s, 2 10k’s, 1 5k, 1 relay]
Year Mileage: 576.50
I tried to use my 2010 monthly stats to motivate me this year to beat that number each month.
As you can see, I barely squeaked by in beating my last year’s mileage. I’m still happy with all that I’ve accomplished this year, as I realize my mileage was down because I added more cross-training into my routine.
All and all 2011 was a great year and I’m proud of all that I accomplished. Thank you all for your motivation and support over this last year. It has meant a lot to me.
Here’s to a rockin’ 2012!
