It's been one heck of year!

The first one in I don't know how long, nothing has gone wrong and everything has gone so, so, so right.  Well unless you count that nasty nasty injury I had early April that sidelined me for 2 months and put me in the hands of a chiropractor.  But even with that...twas a wonderful WONDERFUL year!

While I did defer my Houston marathon to 2014, I do already have 3 races lined up for the first 6 months of 2013.

  1. New York City half marathon in March (got in through the lottery)

  • Bolder Boulder (one of the largest and most popular 10K's in the country; and probably one of the hardest)
  • A trail half marathon in June in South Dakota (the name escapes me right now)

  • All I can hope for now is that at least for the first race of the year, that the snow lets up and gives me the opportunity to run outside again.  With so much snow and it not melting (and drying up because melted snow just turns to ice each and every night), I have to run on the treadmill all the time. 

    Hoping that within the next week at least the roads and/or sidewalks clear up enough so I can run outside again.  Even if it is below zero most mornings and in the 20's each evening. 

    It's definitely a challenge getting out there when its that cold, but doable.  I got some cold weather running gear for Christmas which was greatly appreciated!

    And one of the best and most surprising gifts I got this year???

    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
