…2013 highlights

10 Comments

2013 was a big year for me, not only in the running world, but personally as well.  Sure there were some major disappointments to learn from, but overall, I had a full, rich year with new challenges and big leaps.  I certainly stepped out of my running comfort zone, and in doing so, have met some amazing people and opened myself up to untapped opportunities.  Below are some of the highlights of the year; moments that will be remembered forever.

  4. Did you like the XTerra 1/2? Was that a good trail race?

    • I did! It was appropriately challenging with some great hills and beautiful scenery. I would recommend! I would also recommend the Golden Beaver Trail Half, though the name is changing for 2014. Small race and a good time.

  6. Wow! I am so out of the loop. Congratulations on the engagement!
