Welcome 2014!

I am so exited about 2014! Even though I did not accomplish 13 Half Marathons in 2013, it was an incredible year.  The past few months have taught me to take it a bit easy on myself.  I planned so much in 2013 I really got burnt out.  Add on family stress, and a never ending sickness that is finally gone, it was crazy.

My lesson going into 2014 is to relax more and enjoy.  January is going to be crazy with a trip to Disney coming up for the WDW Dopey Challenge plus a business trip again to Virginia at the end of the month.  I must announce though, I will not be completing it and I am totally cool and relieved with that.  After doing Goofy last year I said I never wanted to do another full, I should have listened to myself.  I will be doing the 5K, 10K and Half though and enjoying some sleep Sunday morning!

Going into 2014 I really want to be more spur of the moment.  Sure we have some exciting things coming up here really soon including a new puppy for Valentines Day, but other than that and Bayshore Half nothing else is planned now and that feels great!

Hope everyone had a wonderful New Year!  We spent ours on the slopes and the kids learned to snowboard.

    I’ll be at WDW Marathon next week too! You’re not alone in not doing the full. I debated it myself and am doing “just’ the 5K, 10K and half. I know some other runners who are pulling the plug on the marathon. I’ll think you’ll be very happy when you don’t have to set an alarm Sunday morning!
