2013 redux

Wow. What a year.

There were ups. Little man graduated from VPK and started Kindergarten. Mr. PugRunner had an amazing year of growth with his business. We discovered (and became hooked on) running. I had my tonsils removed.

There were downs. We lost the best friend known to man. I had my tonsils removed.

We traveled.

We got to spend time visiting family and friends.

Little man lost his first teeth.

I did the impossible and ran 13.1 miles.

All in all, I am grateful for this year. We have our health and so much love and support from so many. It really doesn’t get better than that.

We are having a quiet evening at home. We enjoyed sushi take out and will spend the evening watching The Family, with champagne and slices of red velvet cake from Publix. Tomorrow, Mr PugRunner celebrates his 40th birthday, and we are planning a fun day for him.

It’s nice to lay low and enjoy my little family.

I don’t really believe in making resolutions, but I do have a lot of goals for 2014. They include continuing on our family running journey, ย further growing and developing some of my hobbies, and to maybe thinking a little bit more about the possibility of a marathon.

I hope you have a wonderful and amazing 2014, full of happiness and health, love and laughter.

How did 2013 treat you?

What are you most looking forward to in the New Year?

    I’m doing the cliche thing and resolving to be healthier. But instead of trying crash diets this time I am working on the emotions behind my eating first. It’s going to be an interesting journey. Happy new year!

  6. I know I said this in the comments to my post, but I am so happy to have come across your blog this year. It looks like my plans to run the Moab half in March might no longer happen. If so, I hope to see you at the Gate River Run (by far my favorite race :))
