A year end review – 2013

I’ve had a big change right at the end of the year.  I got a new job!!!!  I left my previous job that I had for over 13 years.  I am super excited about this change but it means that my world is in some chaos and I have to find the new normal.  So bear with me as I figure out how to balance all of this new stuff with my crazy schedule.  🙂  So here is a look back at what I did over the past year.  It’s not boring at all, I mean come on you start with a Oompa Loompa!!!!

So my totals are: 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.

Running & Walking: 243.9 miles

Biking: 599.78 miles (I need to go ride for a 1/4 mile to get me at an even 600 miles lol)

Swimming: 27.38 miles

Total: 871.05 miles for 2013

I am seriously blown over on how far I have gone this year.

I’ve also shrunk myself over 39.5+ inches.  I’m transforming myself one step at a time.  Some days are slow and really hard but they help me get to my ultimate goal – a smaller, healthier me!!!

Just keep moving!!!
