2014 was a fantastic year for me! I hope all of you feel the same way. I think its really important to reflect on the year and focus on the positive!
I hadn’t started this blog yet, but it was brewing in my mind! I started my training for my first half marathon!
I began this blog! It was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I have loved the community that I’ve found with you guys! Its nearly impossible to articulate how encouraging each one of you is!
Michael and I celebrated our first Valentine’s Day together and he spoiled me rotten.
I ran my first half marathon – Shamrock! Not only did I run my first half, but I completed the Dolphin Challenge by doing the 8k and Half Marathon in the same weekend. It was such a rewarding experience.
Michael and I celebrated our 6 month anniversary.
We also went to see comedian Gabriel Iglesias!
April was my favorite month this year!
Michael and I went to Florida and I got to go to Key West for the first time!
On April 19th, Michael proposed!
On April 21st, I celebrated my 27th birthday.
In May, I ran the Chickfila 5k and logged my worst 5k time ever due to major sinus issues! But the Chickfila sandwich at the end totally made up for it.
I bought my wedding dress in June and did lots of other wedding things!
In July, I fell out of love with running, then made a re-commitment to get my act together for my fall races.
I started to focus a lot on a balance of different types of workouts and came up with a killer workout schedule that I kinda kept to….
September brought a lot of anxiety and stress, but also brought things like my 1 year anniversary and a great anniversary trip.
October was a busy month.
I ran my second half marathon – Crawlin Crab. I did both the 5k and the half marathon for the Shell Yeah Challenge. I learned a hard lesson about proper fueling when I bonked early.
Michael and I took a mini vacation to the mountains and got our engagement pictures taken.
Later in the month, I ran the Wicked 10k.
In November, I ran my third half marathon – Harbor Lights. I was very pleased with my mental fortitude during this race as well as my fueling plan!
Who doesn’t love December?!
I ran my first 5-miler at the Surfin Santa. It was also my first twilight race.
Then of course, Christmas with my dear family and friends.
2014 was a great year and 2015 promises to be ever more incredible! Happy New Year everyone!
