As I have seen on other blogs, here is a year in review. The above picture is from a 5K in Feb called Jog with the Generals. It holds a special place in my heart because it was my first EVER 5k about 4 years ago.... I try to run it every year!
Hal Higdon was at the Tallahassee Marathon & Half marathon EXPO!!! And, I was able to get him to sign this book!!!! So exciting!!!!
The above is from another local 5k, I remember the weather was freezing!!!!!!
Oh, probably the most fun race was a color run!!!! I am not a fan of color runs, but my son LOVES them!!! My hair is blond (highlighted blond at that), and the color they thrown at these races can stay in my hair for a while....... but, I was clever and wore a wig!!! A purple wig that is!!!!!!!! I mean, it is a COLOR run, right?!?!
The below picture is from a local 5k that honors a local teen that drown in a pond a few years back..... I remember all the search efforts. It rocked the entire community. I was grateful to meet his mother, and get a picture with her. Her faith is amazing, and she is such an inspiring person!!!
Oh, the below picture reminds me of when I had to be evaluated by a podiatrist for a foot injury!!!! Oh, this was not a happy time for me! I strained a tendon in my foot and it literally took me out of running for weeks!!!!!!!
Due to the foot injury, I took up spinning! I spent more hours that I liked on a spin bike!!!! But, it did help be keep my fitness level, and actually helped with my speed I think!!!!
I placed in my age group at the race below.... I remember it being super HOT!!!!! And HUMID!!!! Luckily, we were given ice cold towels at the end of the race!!! They were wonderful...... I forgot to take mine off prior to getting a photo!
The below picture if from a local 4th of July race!!! So fun! The first 25 people received medals!!! It was a GREAT RACE!
There were fun race where characters were there...... Like at this one where we were able to get a picture with Flash!!!!!! :D
Below, is my all time FAVORITE picture!!!!! I will forever hold this memory of running with my son in my heart!!!! Thankfully, a dear friend of mine captured this photo!!! A photo that is my absolute favorite!!!!
2015 was a GREAT year!!!! And, as 2015 is brought to a close, the beginning of 2016 is opening.... A WHOLE new book!!!!!!! The outline of this book has a First Ever Full Marathon in the future to be written about!! At present time, I am writing pages full of training and preparation, but hopefully, if all goes well, there will be a chapter in the book of 2016 talking about me completing 26.2 miles!!!! We shall see! I am excited for what 2016 brings!!!!!
**BIG plans for 2016? Goals?........do tell!
**Favorite race memory of 2015? Mine, of course, was being able to run with my son!!!
