2013 in Review

30 12 2013

One of my favorite things about blogging is that it’s like a virtual scrapbook. I can share stories and pictures from throughout the year and then look back on them and smile. I don’t look back often enough, because as I was preparing this post, I found myself saying “OH yeah, I forgot about that!”

Here’s a few of my favorites- I hope you enjoyed reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!

For my 30th birthday, I went FlyBoarding!

I rode a motorcycle for the first time.

A weekend in the mountains with my favorite people was exactly what I needed in March.

I made some mouth-watering, decadent pancakes, if I do say so myself. (exhibit A, B, C)

I embraced the outdoors and went camping for the first time, followed by some Florida hiking, all in preparation for my big trip to ALASKA!!

My Alaska trip was BY FAR the highlight of my year. It was an absolutely incredible experience that I will never forget. You can relive the experience by reading my posts (Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) (<–Clearly, I didn’t want to miss a single detail!)

I wanted to know what it was like to work in the food service industry, so I took on a part time job (in addition to my full time job) for a short time. Unfortunately, I couldn’t balance the two, so it didn’t last long. However, it was a great learning experience!

And, last, but certainly not least- my biggest triathlon accomplishment to date: I competed in my first Half Ironman.

Call me crazy, but I really enjoyed pushing myself through 70.3 miles- using my own two feet, pumping heart and burning lungs. I can definitely tell you there’s another 70.3 happening in 2014.

I had an absolutely awesome year, with fantastic friends and family to support me along the way. Thank you, my wonderful readers for joining me on my journey! Here’s to a 2014 that’s just as great (if not better) than 2013!

You had a stellar 2013! You’ve grown so much as a runner and triathlete! Can’t wait to see how great your 2014 is!
