80 Miles?? And some Goals for 2013!

80 Miles?? And some Goals for 2013!

It’s been a great first week of a brand new year.  2013- I think I’m really going to like you! my BIGGEST blessings! I am still figuring out some new goals for 2013.  I am keeping a lot of my old ones but I have a few new things in mind for the new year. Here are a few non-running goals in no particular order: 1. Memorize 1 Corinthians 13 with my kids. 2. Learn how to french braid. 3….

2012 review and going out with a bang!

2012 review and going out with a bang!

I wasn’t sure if I was going to get around to reviewing my 2012 goals but I decided it was time.  I need to do it for me more than anything else.  Some of them I met, some I didn’t.  And that’s ok because 2013 is a fresh new start! Goal # 1- Read the Bible. I really wish I could say YES to this one (like I did in 2011) but I can’t. Sadly, I made it until mid…

The BEST and WORST of 2012: A Year of Racing!

The BEST and WORST of 2012: A Year of Racing!

It’s been a little while (almost a year to be exact) since I wrote my New Year’s Resolution Post but I decided to go back and check out some of my running related goals when 2012 started. One of my goals was to run a race every month!  This included 5K’s all the way to marathons. I knew this would not be possible if I got injured but as long as I could physically do it, I wanted to run…

2012 Goals- Where Are We?

2012 Goals- Where Are We?

I do not usually ever recap each month.  It’s not that I don’t want to because I think that would actually be pretty helpful.  I just don’t have time or the organizational motivation right now.  Maybe it’s the never ending pile of laundry or dishes but I just can’t seem to find the time to write monthly mileage updates.  I do keep track of everything on my personal running calendar and on Daily Mile. Every July I like to re-visit…

2012 Goals… Here we go!

It is officially 1 week into 2012 and for the moment… I AM CAUGHT UP ON ALL THE LAUNDRY!!! Yes, finally! We went on a week vacation and the laundry got a bit out of control.  So I thought I would like to take the free five minutes or so I have and post some of my goals for this year.  2012 Goals Spiritually- Read the Bible. This was a huge blessing to my life in 2011 and I am…

I Did It!!!

I Did It!!!

Let me preface this with a disclaimer… The following post is NOT meant to sound boastful or arrogant in ANY way. ALL credit goes to God because it is through Him that makes all things possible. I’m so glad He does!! A little over a year ago I set out on a mission. I was tired of just talking about reading the Bible and decided to actually read the ENTIRE Bible. This was not my first time to attempt this…

The Halfway Point

The Halfway Point

Today is a very special day. It’s July 1st and on this day I became a mother… My baby is 7?!! While I am on the subject of reflecting, I might as well consider that we are exactly halfway through the year. It has been quite an eventful 6 months. I have experienced great joy, as well as some pain. It’s hard to believe that 6 months ago, I looked like this… I can definitely say that the highlight of…

New Year’s Resolutions- here we go!

New Year’s Resolutions- here we go!

I cannot remember the last time I actually sat down and made New Year’s Resolutions. I know I did it when I was young and living at home with my parents. I have actually given this year’s goals a lot of thought. 2011 has a lot of things in store and I guess I think that if I have specific goals it will help me succeed in meeting these goals. Here we go…. Spiritually– Read through the entire Bible.I have…
