New Year's Eve Dash 2012

Turkey Trot 2012

Happy New Year's Eve, fellow Sparkies!

It has been a minute since I've been on SP. Lots of stuff going on, but fortunatley, I have kept on running! I've run 2 5Ks since my last post in October. :) Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season! 2012 has been such a whirlwind year! Lots of firsts for me. It has been exciting & I am so grateful to have my SP community to come back to & the uncondtional support from my DH & my DD! They have been & continue to be my coaches, cheerleaders & lifelines! They are my favorite gifts under the Christmas tree every year. Hope Santa was good to you, too!

Signed up for a virtual New Year's Day run with SP. Finding out that I actually ENJOY running in the chilly & wintery Windy City. Well, so far I have completed five 5K races since September, & a few more from the SP virtual races from this past Summer, as well.

2013, I'm raising the bar & training for a 10K & maybe if I am crazy enough, a Half Marathon. I am starting Beachbody's P90X this week, too. Cleaning up my diet with WW points plus...for the umteenth time... :) Our first wealth is health & it is my main goal for this new year.

Many, many thanks for the spark goodies you sent during my "hiatus." You all renew my hopes & are such an inspiration to me!!! Everyone's thoughfulness means so much to me! Wishing you continued good health, abundance, & success in 2013! Love & prayers to you all.

    Happy New Year!

I did my first half marathon before I did a 10k. The half is my favorite distance. I'm not a big fan of winter running but I have been doing it so far, training for my 1st marathon in April. 2 years ago, when I ran my first 5k I never thought I'd be running a marathon.

You will do great with the longer distances!
