I really don’t know how to re-cap the whole year, so I’m going to try my best. To come up with this list, I literally went through the pictures on my phone to remember everything that I did in the last year. Seriously! I went on trips, I ran, I raced, I softballed, I volleyballed. I lived! I did some great things that I’ll never forget!

I went on an amazing vacation to Jamaica with 15 of volleyball friends for a week of fun, volleyball, and amazing memories!

I got to see Heidi three times throughout the year – in March for the Get lucky 7k. In April for her 2nd half marathon, and my 5th half marathon where we both PR’d huge, and in July when I went to Colorado to visit her and Chris for a few days.2012-03-17_10-54-11_681

I trained (well) for and PR’d at the Fargo half marathon in April and even got my good friend Katie into running and we ran her first 5k together! I also met a few bloggers/twitter friends there two. I don’t know if I’ll forget the story of “meeting” Jen. We just happened to drive up to Fargo right along side each other and I walked past her taking a picture at a rest stop, and once she posted it on twitter I knew that was her! So awkward, but still funny!

I participated in my first ever RW Runstreak and made it go an extra month or so until after my CO trip to visit Heidi!

I went to Colorado, which needs it’s own line because it was so great (mostly due to the world class tour guide!) I met a bunch of awesome friends out in CO that I hope to visit again soon! (ahem…drop your drawer’s 2013 anyone!?)

I spent my summer at the softball fields, volleyball courts with the fam, and out on the roads/trails/treadmill (continuring my streak) running!  I even joined the lifetime run club!
