To say the least, 2011 was quite the year.
I learned the trials and tribulations of raising a black lab puppy who is almost as sassy as I am.
I’ve learned that life goes on. And I love the quote, “God has three answers to our prayers. ‘Yes,’ ‘Not Yet,’ or ‘I have something better in mind.’
I learned to really, truly enjoy running. And I learned that anything can be accomplished if I throw your heart and soul into it. Even 26.2 miles.
I learned that life would be next to impossible without the support from those who love me.
I learned how much I freaking love BIC Bands. Should I be embarrassed to admit I own about 8 of the sparkly ones?
I learned to enjoy post-run ice baths.
And that they are way better with a running twin.
I learned that the blog world can connect me with so many awesome girls who are just like me (a crazy amount like me… it’s weird, you guys).
I learned the wonders of coaching middle school field hockey. Oh, the wonders…
I learned that I won’t collapse and die if I wake up early for morning workouts. I learned to enjoy them, even if it did mean showering at the gym before work.
I learned how rewarding, touching, and fun it can be to help plan the wedding of two of my closest friends.
How beautiful is that? Lisa-Marie made it for me for Christmas.
I learned to do abs with one leg in the air to keep a certain dog from climbing on my chest while doing my crunches.
I discovered a passion for creating obnoxious costumes and sporting them in public.
I learned that I still really like wine. No shocker there.
I’ve got high hopes for 2012. Are you ready? What did you learn this past year?
