It is hard to believe that 2015 is on its way out. This year has been great – and busy! – which has translated into me not keeping up with this blog as much as I would like. Once again I will add “keep up with blog” to my Goals for 2016!
Anyway… my running has dwindled over the last few months. I was going strong over the summer preparing for The Crim, then I was going strong preparing to run my first half marathon, and then life took over. I went on a big trip for a training for work, didn’t keep up with my training plan, and then caught a cold (that I am STILL fighting off!). I’m keeping my head up though – I have had SO many amazing accomplishments this year with running that I keep reminding myself of to push myself to finish out 2015 strong!
Here’s just a few things that I accomplished in running this year…
- I had multiple 5k PRs this summer
- I FINALLY ran the Cedar Point 5k that I have been wanting to run for years!
- I ran the Crim… 10 miles… amazed
- I ran my first 8k race
- I had a 10k PR
