Happy Holidays!

Good morning!  

I can't believe so much time has gone by so quickly!  We spent Thanksgiving down in Northern California with my Mom and it was a lot of fun.  My Aunt and Uncle live down there also so we were able to spend the day all together which was a first!  

In other fun news I actually got an article published in our local paper!  I took a leap and put myself out there and it turned out that the editor liked my idea.  I am really excited about taking my first step towards becoming a writer and I love that it is in our local paper.    

Believe it or not I have been running but not as much as I would like.  Its been crazy with the holidays coming up but making it a priority is what will keep me on track.  I ran 3 miles on Tuesday and today will be a treadmill run in the garage.  I have a love/hate relationship with the treadmill, grateful I have it but I always prefer running outside.  Although staying dry and being able to watch Parenthood is a nice perk!  

I have lots of fun ideas and changes coming to my blog after the new year and I am so excited.  I started this blog as a personal diary of my running and next year I have lots of fun ideas for next year with my running and I am excited and nervous about reaching those goals.  One thing I do know is that I am at my most comfortable and at ease mentally when I am on a training plan.  It causes me to eat right and rest at night and relax during my off time.  As a busy girl who loves to be doing something it takes a lot to calm me down and make me sit and running makes me do that.  If you want to be successful in your running goals you have to make the time for them and prioritize.  I am excited to start 2013 with marathon goals and see where it all takes me, running was a game changer in 2012, I see good things for 2013.  

I hope you all have a good weekend!  We have Santa arriving by helicopter tomorrow and Sherwood's tree lighting, I am so ready for Christmas!  Plus I think Santa may deliver his helper Mr. Elf today, let the fun begin!  

What are some of your goals for 2013?  

Do you set goals or resolutions?  Or neither?! 

Do you have anything going on this weekend to get ready for Christmas?


  1. Congrats! So exciting to hear your getting published in the paper.

    1. Thank you! I was really excited when the editor actually liked my idea :) I would love to professionally write for magazines and newspapers one day.
