2013: Time Flies When You're Having Fun!


Can you believe today is the last day of 2013? I certainly can't. I guess the saying is true: time flies when you're having fun. And overall, 2013 was SO much fun! 

There were so many firsts for me in 2013! Looking back at the year, I'm so lucky for each of these experiences!

-I joined Twitter in February! I've met some amazing people and this virtual running community is amazing!
-I completed the runDisney Everest Challenge in May. That was my first time ever doing Everest and I did it with my husband and some great friends! 
                                   
-I went to Disneyland for the first time ever. And I ran my first back to back challenge race at Disneyland for the Dumbo Double Dare in August.
-I got my first runDisney Coast to Coast Challenge medal!
-I missed my first full marathon in October due to being sick. 
-I applied for the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It was my first time ever applying and I made it to the second round. 
-I ran my fastest half marathon ever at the St. Augustine Half in November.

-I finally qualified for Half Fanatics.
-I ran my first full marathon at Space Coast in December.
-I became truly injured for the first time since I started running. Boo to the boot!


2013 has been a bit of a roller coaster at times. There were so many ups and then a few downs. But with all there is on the horizon for 2014, those downers won't keep me down for too long. Thanks 2013 for a great year! 

How did your year shape up? What was the one big accomplishment you made in 2013?
