2010...The YEAR of the MARATHON!

Do you know what shirt that is? 
Looking pretty in the morning before my run!  Don't be jealous...you too could have sweet fly aways!
 
Wow, it's 2011.  It was so fun reading 2010 recaps of every ones goals and all that they accomplished and all the new goals for 2011.  So encouraging and exciting, so thank you for sharing! 

 
I used to not be someone who set goals until a few years ago when a group of friends and I started getting together to share our goals for the upcoming year.  Since then I have put a lot of time, thought and prayer into my resolutions.  I have journaled through out the year and always enjoy reading what has happened the last couple of years...all the ups...and downs.  It also helps me decide on the upcoming year and what I will do.

 
Some major HIGHLIGHTS from 2010...

 
*Take a guess...MY MARATHON!  I did what I set out to...I ran my first MARATHON!


*I PR'd my HALF MARATHON by 8 minutes with TALL-MOM beside me.


*Max "Prayed Jesus into his HEART"...those are his words.  Very SWEET moment.


*I ran with FRIENDS all year long.  Not sure how I could have trained for a Marathon without all of them.


*Did more organic and natural food shopping by visiting my Trader Joe's more often.

 
There is more I'm sure but since I have had this sitting in my Post box for a couple weeks...figured I should publish it.  I had really wanted to share pictures and more exciting stuff...but finding the time right now...now as easy as it once was...long-long ago...you know...before my MARATHON days! 

 
Enjoy the pictures...they are all from my last run of 2010!  Great day for a run and I picked the perfect outfit to close out 2010...THE YEAR OF THE MARATHON!  (I was wearing my MARATHON shirt...if you didn't notice, which I never run in)

 
Max make a silly face...obviously my face didn't get the memo...
 

And because you always need a self portrait...you do, right?  RIGHT!

Peace out 2010!

 
What does 2011 hold...We will shall see!  I'm excited for what is to come, I have made my 2011 resolutions...or should I say resolution!  I only made one and it's not running related, but I hope it leads me to some great races!  Kind of making life a little simpler and more focused with the resolution this year.
