Reflections and projections

It's CRAZY how many HIGHS and lows you can have in a year. 
No matter the lows, the highs have ALWAYS over-shined any low.
#glasshalffulltypeofwomaniam ;)

HIGH Marathon PR - felt like a ROCKSTAR
LOW Marathon FAIL - felt like I was going to die
HIGH Ultra Ragnar with my Cholla Chicks
LOW Leg CRAMPS *lookoneveryfreakinpost* #seriouslyiHAVEtofigurethemout 

HIGH Reading my little booty off - I joined a book club late 2011 and they have inspired me to read read read read read. AND I LOVE IT. I have finished over 20 books this year #mostihaveEVERread

HIGH Finished my FIRST Triathlon and place 1st in my AG!
HIGH Signed up for my first 70.3 


HIGH signed up and completed the most races EVER! Epic racing year this was! 
AND I have some FREAKIN awesome bling to prove it!

HUGEST HIGH EVER
#chollachicks these girls mean more to me than I can say.

I am now thinking about this upcoming year...
I have a HUGE HUGE HUGE race.
70.3 is no freakin joke.
S/B/R 2013 Goals:
Swim my butt off at Phx Swim Club & throw in OWswimming once the weather permits

Cycle with the awesome women of Team Jobing.com
sign up for my first REAL cycling race


Train like mad and run at least 12 miles of hills each week so I can KILL Ragnar... 
Did I mention I am Leg 1 - doing 36 miles!!

...and of course KILL my 70.3 
I have a time in mind BUT I really am going to keep it on the DL until I know what I can really achieve. Since I am not a swimmer or cyclist it is hard to determine what I will do... I will of course let y'all in on the secret as the race comes closer. =D 



Personal:
Learn to play the crap out of my sweet new Harmonica

Keep up my reading streak 

TWO words: Dave.Ramsey.


How was 2012 for you?!
What are you most looking forward to in 2013?
