I promise I have not fallen off the face of the earth

Life got crazy and I can’t slow down long enough to type out the blog posts that I want too.  Yes you all will be enlightened but not yet.  🙂  I know I am such a tease.

So here is part of what I want to tell you all.  It’s my 2nd Running Anniversary!!!  Officially I believe the actual day is December 4th, but it’s the first weekend in December that I did my very first Couch 2 5k workout.  I drove up to the Library in Peachtree City, put on my ipod and started my stopwatch.  I didn’t know what to expect or how I would feel.  I of course picked a route that had these rolling hills on it and I cursed my way up and down them.  But what was important is that I did the entire first workout and didn’t stop.  I then started doing my workouts 3 times a week on a schedule so I wouldn’t have any excuses.  And that’s exactly what I did, I kept going.  2 years later I have now completed 12 5k’s in 2012 and in 2013 I have done – 9- 5k’s, 2-10k’s, 4 sprint triathlons, and 1 2-day (94 mile) bike event.  16 events in total during 2013.  I am super pleased with that.  So to celebrate my runnaversary I ran a 10k with these two wonderful ladies!!!!

So to close, here are a snap shot of me over the past 2 years.  🙂
