Wow, it's 2012! I kind of feel like 2011 was a whirlwind. We had just moved at the end of 2010, and I spent a good part of 2011 adjusting to a new environment, new job, new house etc. We moved so fast that I didn't really have time to think about much, I knew it was the right thing, it just happened so fast that it took me quite a while to adjust. Maybe that's why I feel like 2011 flew by.
Anyway, how was everyone's Christmas and New Year? We had a great little time off. We spent some time with family and just relaxed mostly at home. It was nice not to have to be anywhere and do anything. I feel rested and ready to conquer 2012.
So I've not made any resolutions this year, actually I don't really ever make any I guess. I mean there are always things you say you are going to do or accomplish. One big goal of mine this year is to run a half marathon. I've talked about doing it for a couple of years, and I've been running on and off for a couple of years. But I finally decided to get serious about it. I woke up one day, told my husband we were gonna run a half marathon. Surprisingly, he was totally on board - ok, not totally, but mostly on board. So we have been running 3-4 times a week to get ready. The race is at the end of March, I'm kind of excited. I don't really have any expectations because this will be my first race. I just want to be able to finish and not be the last one over the finish line. Actually I'd like to run with a 12 minute per mile pace. Which is actually pretty good for me, since I'm a slow runner.
Let's see, what else has been going on... same stuff mostly. I feel like I should have tons to say when I haven't blogged in awhile, but I guess I'm just kind of boring like that.
Would love to hear about some of the things you want to accomplish in 2012. Anybody else out there planning on running any races?? We can keep eachother cyber company. :)
Happy Wednesday everyone!
