Heya, Peeps! Long time no chit-cat and bliggity blog. I have been on FunCation for the last 16 days and I took it very seriously. There was a lot of quality time with the family, a lot less social media obsessing and absolutely zero blog reading or writing. I’d like to do a recap post of what The Fam and I were up to over the last couple of weeks, but I’m not really organized enough yet to do that. We did do quite a few fun things so I think I’ll work on that for tomorrow. Or Wednesday, I wouldn’t want to over tax myself with posting too often this week.
I want to take this opportunity to officially apologize for the mass amounts of comments all the blogs I follow will be recieving shortly. I have something like 300 posts I need to catch up on. Such a first world problem, I know. I was going to just skip them all, but I don’t want to miss out on the fun things everyone has been up to. Maybe my comments won’t make a difference to a lot of bloggers, but that’s ok, I still feel the need to get all caught up.
I realize that during this time of the year everyone is rolling out their goals for 2013 and doing a recap of 2012. So here’s my quick recap and goals and then we can move on.
2012: The year I learned to love running. I started Couch to 5K (again) in February. I actually didn’t begin the program on week 1, I think I skipped toward week 4 or 5 because I was just that damn confident in my amazing skills. Like before I finished the program and was trying to figure out what to do next. Bam, let’s do a Half Marathon (yes those two words should always be capitalized). So I did my first ever Half in July in Texas (so smart!). And then I did two more. 2012 was awesome! Between February and December I ran 535 miles. Boom Shaka-Laka! I had previously run a total of 100 miles, in FOUR years! So go me.
2013: More of the same. I actually don’t really have goals for 2013, I don’t make resolutions on New Year’s Day. And I’m still slightly injured right now, so looking positively into the future isn’t really working so well. I’ve committed to running a Half with a new runner, and a 10K with another friend new to running. And I’ll run a relay for the first time. If I *had* to point and say “this, THIS is what I want to work on” for the upcoming running year, it would be to get stronger so I don’t get injured again and get closer to that sub 2:00 Half Marathon.
As for the non-running side of life, I made some great new friends in the last year, and I hope to make those relationships stronger and happier. I posted on The Facebook, that if I could only have one wish for New Year’s it would be for my friends and family to be happy and healthy. Because in reality THAT is all I need.
I’m a little late to the party, but I still want to know, do you make resolutions? What are your running goals for 2013?
