The Magic number is 1034.32!

31 Dec

1034.32 miles. I ran 1034.32 miles this year. I am proud of that accomplishment.

I know it has been forever since I have written a post. I have been busy. I was doing a good job updating the blog until November and then it went down hill. So here are some pictures to show you what we have been up to.

As 2013 comes to an end I am happy with how my year went.
Here are my goals that I set out to do for 2013:
1. Keep Running: I would like to run 1,000 Miles this year! I would also like to run several half marathons. I would like to have 10 half marathons run by the end of 2013. That would mean I would need to run 7 this year!! I am already planning my race schedule.
My running goals were right on. I absolutely kept running this year. The mileage was awesome. Just in case you forgot I ran a total of 1034.32 miles this year. The only goal that I didn’t accomplish was to have 10 half marathons completed by the end of the year. It was in the plan but the weather didn’t cooperate. The day I was going to run my 10th, which was going to be in Brooklyn, NY at the Holiday Half, there was a snowstorm and I didn’t want to drive in the bad weather. So I will complete my 10th half marathon in 2014, not that big of a deal.

2. Blog at least once a week. During the Blog set the weekly running schedule and then do a weekly recap on what I did!
I didn’t really keep to this but I am still happy with my blogging. Blogging takes way more time than you think so I am okay with the outcome.

3. Follow through with things. I often start things or have really great intentions but then I just don’t do it! I don’t know why but I am going to try to do a better job at following through on things. I hoping that this Blog will help with this!
I am doing a much better job with this in all aspects of my life. I am making an effort to keep things going. So again I am happy with this.

4. More play time with the kids. Both the weekdays and weekends get so consumed with getting stuff done that I don’t take quality time to PLAY with my kids.
This of course I can always work on. I have been spending much of this break getting things organized in the house with the hope that things will run more smoothly around here. Because things are running more smoothly I am hoping that it will lead to more time with the kids doing lots of fun stuff.

5. Enjoy this year with my Husband…2013 marks being married 10 years. I want to make sure that we are getting quality time together this year. Here is to more date nights!!!
I did enjoy 2013 with Dave. Disney was awesome and we did have more date nights even though I know we could use some more.

6. BE HAPPY-I have so many reasons to be happy! If I believe it then I will be it!!
I can’t argue with this one….yes I am happy and why shouldn’t I be. There are so many reasons I have to be happy.
2013, I think was a success. We had a great year and I am looking forward to what 2014 will bring for my family and for my running.
Goals for 2014 are coming in the next post.
For now…Happy New Year…I hope 2014 brings much happiness and peace to all.
