As everyone is looking at 2018 accomplishments as we close out the year, I didn’t have a stellar year compared to others but at 45 years old, I’m done living in comparison.
Comparison is the thief of joy.
My 2018 in a nutshell:
Spring: United NYC Half Marathon-consistently trained, raced, and PR’d.
Summer: Focused on getting a new job and got one.
Fall: Philly Rock n Roll Half – trained in heat, and really suffered at the race with the 80 degree temps.
Two half marathons in one year would make this a pretty good year. Even better is the momentum of consistency I’ve been working on since November.
Today, I finished Week 1 of training for the United NYC Half Marathon (Half #8!) and had one of the fastest 5k times in recent years which was at practice.

Looking forward, I made a vision board mostly for the NYC Marathon but also for the rest of life. *scissor skills are not my strength. Also included are a trip to Paris/Alsace in April, Westminster Meet the Breeds in Feb, NYC Half in March, and Spring Lake beach and gardening.
One of the stories that moves me is that of 25 year old Hannah Gavios, (and Amanda Sullivan on the left) who finished the NYC Marathon on crutches. I highly recommend reading her story:
Whatever your goals, may you have faith in yourself to achieve them.
See you in 2019!
