So instead of the same ol' New Year's Resolutions I try and make every year, you know the "lay of the candy, stop drinking Diet Coke, quit biting my fingernails" resolutions (don't get me wrong.....I tried them and failed miserably the first day of the year)??? Well, This year I came up with some more realistic goals.....oh like: run 12 half-marathons in 12 months. You heard me right. And yes, I have the first one under my belt. Last weekend Bryan and I spent the weekend in St. George and I ran the Painter's Half Marathon. Because I don't run in the cold and I do all of my training (during the Winter) on a treadmill I wasn't prepared for the freezing cold temperature when we started nor the many unexpected hills. But I finished and that's all that matters. If anyone else made a "12 half marathons in 12 months" resolution.....I would love a running partner :)
My bestest friend, Treo, and her darling baby Jaylee there to cheer me on.
