A year in Review

Sunday 12/30/12

Yesterday's long run was 12 miles, in the snow.  It snowed only about 3 inches over night into Saturday morning.  It was still the better day to train.  Today is more cold and a little more windy.  The snow doesn't bother me.  In fact, when I first went out to run it was still snowing a bit and I actually enjoyed that.  I always have.  What I did not care for was that the bike trail had not been cleared off yet and part of Wildwood Park.  It was a little brutal on the ankles.  I am feeling a bit weak today.  It was a 12 mile run yesterday and it went much faster than I had anticipated it would.  Not literally but figuratively.  I estimated that it would take about 2 hours and 20 minutes to run it and my actually came in at 2:17.  I did really well for the conditions and mentally I was good.  The longer the runs get the more amazed I am at how my body is holding up to it.  I did go to the gym this morning, even though I should have rested.  But, in my defense I will not be able to go tomorrow and they are closed on Tuesday.  So, I will have a forced rest day.  Sigh...why do I not know how to let myself rest?

Of course I am thinking about the past year, it is the end of 2012.  It has been such an eventful and interesting year.  Some good, some not so good, and some things just are.  If I think about things in terms of accomplishments this year (large and small) here's what I come up with:

1.  I finished with the personal trainers certification
2.  I maintained my healthy weight
3.  I decided to and committed to running a marathon
4.  I finished a few household projects
5.  I made some new friends
6.  I read some great books.  Mostly fiction because I had been neglecting to read for fun for a long time.
7.  I paid off some bills
8.  I finally got that dental work done
9.  I improved my credit score, paid off my old car and got a new one
10.  I made a decision about my next career move
11.  I'm still deeply in love with my husband

That's just a short list of things I can come up with off the top of my head.  I am excited about 2013 and what will be happening in this new year.  My determination to get even better in the year to come is an energy that cannot be contained.  I am about to come apart at the seems with anticipation for what's next!
