I can say that 2012 was a banner year as DSSECRETS & I started it with a Half Marathon and ended it with 2 5Ks in one day!

Our highlights?

Doing our first 5K with our Granddaughter Gianna
Doing our First Half Marathon, the St Pete Inaugural RocknRoll Half Marathon
Doing the Gasparilla Distance Classic 5K
DSSECRETS doing her second Iron Girl!
Doing our second Half Marathon, the Space Coast Half Marathon.
On Sep 29, I set a Personal Record that, by Nov 10, was broken 3 times.
And my doctors said I would be in a wheelchair by 45!
(Couldn't find the emoticon I was thinking of putting here so...)

In 2013?
8th Annual Clearwater Halfathon Jan 20
Best Damn Race 10K Feb 2 (Running with Team Milestones)
Tampa Bay Gasparilla Half Marathon Feb 24

We're doing our first Duathlon on St Patty's Day, Mar 17.
We are planning to fo the Lady Schick Half Marathon in November.

I know we're in for the American Running Company (We are now on their Race Team.) Run Series so there's another six races.

Who knows what we find to fill up the year. I do know we'll train better this year. I do not want to be held back by any injuries. I always say, "Train well, Run well." I know that DSSECRETS & I love to experience the races together, it keeps us in the healthy lifestyle, and we see Gianna running with us in the future!
We are blessed with all these opportunities and our SparkFriends who have provided us with the inspiration, the motivation, and the experience to help us become runners! It truly amazes me that I can now say with total certainty. "I am a runner!"
