After being gone to visit family for 12 days, I am happy to be home. I had a wonderful time and didn't bother to check my blog or email once. Instead, I spent my days sleeping in until late in the morning, drinking the world's best coffee, running, reading 3 books, and watching some TV. However, all good things must come to an end. School is back in full swing. But first, I want to take some time to reflect on 2011.
First, when I got back to Chicagoland, I was welcomed by Bobbi's blogger Secret Santa gift. I love it. Thank you so much, Bobbi! You are so kind and thoughtful.
I am sad to see 2011 go. Without a doubt, 2011 was the best year of my life.
I met a lot of new people, joined a running club, and connected with other people in the blogosphere.
I set new PRs in 5k, 4 mile, 8k, 15k and the half marathon distance. I also ran my first marathon so I got an automatic PR. I also ran my first and second duathlon. In every distance I ran, I set a PR. My PR's prior to 2011 were decent. I think I went from being an "ok" runner to a "good" runner.
More about 2011 and 2012 to come....
