Reading Time: 2 minsYet another year gone by!  The easiest way to start this off is by comparing to last year, right? 2013 was definitely a much calmer year. A year filed with more reflection of my past and hope for things to be better; in general of course.

Here’s my year in review:

  • Ran my first Ragnar Relay and made some great new friends.
  • Started a new relationship!  Who happened to be someone from the Ragnar team.  <3
  • Ran 6 half marathons
  • Ran four 5Ks, one 15K, & one 10K
  • Competed in six sprint triathlons and one sprint duathlon
  • Completed my first Ironman 70.3 triathlon
  • Completed my first full Marathon (Chicago)
  • Got a nice raise at work
  • Completed the wood flooring in my house- Which I owe some much credit to my Dad and Mom.  Love you guys!
  • Officially dissolved my photography business- I gotta get back to enjoying photography for what it is

This year was the first year in a long time where I did not travel internationally.  It kind of sadden me when realizing this, yet I accomplished so much with fitness goals it kind of makes up for it.  I also spent so much money on training and races, which definitely made up for travel costs.  🙂  I also spent an entire 6 months training for the Ironman 70.3.  As in 6 months worth of working out twice a day- not just going to the gym and working out, but more like either swimming, biking, or running (for distance).

I also met someone special.  I purposely wanted to stay single for a few years, but hey c’est la vie!  I’m truly happy where I am in my life, yet I have this feeling that something is still missing and i just don’t know what that is.  I don’t know what’s in store for me in the short term future, but hopefully it’ll be epic!
