Was a tremendously bittersweet year for me.  It started off shitty and got amazing pretty quick.

Here’s my year in review:

  • A long term relationship ended with someone I thought I’d spend the rest of my life with
  • Work has gotten exponentially out of hand, even unrealistic at times
  • Had a little health scare with my digestive system
  • Ran 4 half marathons in the first 6 months of the year and continued to set PRs for each one
  • Lost 22 pounds
  • Competed in my first solo triathlon
  • Purchased my first dedicated tri bike
  • Ran a 20 minute 5K
  • Got a new car
  • Shared an amazing vacation in South Korea with my mom
  • Made tons of new friends
  • And the greatest moment of this year- Purchased my first HOUSE!!

I’m sure I missed some stuff, but in the grand scheme of things my year turned out pretty damn good!!  It was filled with a ridiculous amount of drinking and partying.  Lets just say I easily spent thousands of dollars on such shenanigans!  The beginning of the year was a lot of sadness and maybe even some depression; not too bad though.  But, most importantly things just simply got better!  I grew a lot over this past year as a person and have gotten to know myself a lot better.

I have tons of goals for 2013, so hopefully next year will be even better!!
