2012, a reflection...

As I reflect on 2012, I can honestly say I am proud of what I have accomplished.  I ran my 2nd and 3rd marathons. 

I got to run with my daddy. He ran about a mile with me in my marathon in June, 

and we ran the Jingle Bell Run (sorta) together, as well as with many other members of my family!  

I PR'd at every distance, except that illusive half-marathon.  I fought and won against PF.  I have stayed healthy.

I have run alone....

I have run with friends.  I have paced friends.  I have had friends pace me. 

I have run with my girls...

I competed in my first triathlon (Olympic distance). 

I met my running goal for the year.  Even with set-backs, 

I have fought through and I came out stronger.  

It was a good year.  


  1. You've had an amazing year, Mel! So proud of you and even more proud to call you a friend! Best wishes in 2013!

  2. What an amazing year! Congratulations!

    That owie looks terrible!
