2011 in Review and 2012 Goals


I joined the Arvada Running club in late 2010. 2011 was just great for my running by being a part of this club. I got rejuvenated and felt like I was on a cross-country team again! The love and support I get and can give to all these different runners in the club is contagious. I began running track workouts and long runs consistently. I had some minor injuries but overall a great year.

I ran many races in 2011 and had some disappointments but overall am so happy to be racing again!!

In Career:
I am trying to challenge myself more in my career as I have been a high school guidance counselor at the same high school for 8 years. So this year I took on an intern and that was a great experience to train someone to become a counselor one day.

In Home:
We are in the process of re-modeling our basement and should be done soon so I can post pics! We textured all the walls by ourselves and painted. Just need some tile work done and bathroom.

2012 Goals/Resolutions:

One marathon a year

A race a month...last year I missed March, April and November

Try one new recipe (once every 2 weeks)
Explore new running trails in the Boulder area

Finish re-modeling basement

Fun craft projects - one a month minimum!!

Be a good wife

Plan summer vacation 2012

Blog once a week minimum

Comment on other people's blogs

Compete with myself but encourage others  (I've had my competitive days back in high school and college)
