Welcome 2013!

I hope 2013 has started GREAT!!
In trying to get back to my blogging- I wanted to start with a Resolution Recap from 2012!!
Then look into what I want for 2013!!

My 2012 Resolutions:
1. 12 in 12 in 2012
I had this done by summer! I so enjoyed all the many books I read! You can see my recaps of them here!

2. Get to 100-
I actually got to 125!!
I feel AWESOME!!

More on this later...

3. 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2-
I got half of this done.
My teammate and I weren't ready for our half and she was battling a foot injury- so we put the half on hold and I've given myself until I'm 30 for the full!! :-)
Training starts back (aka- my butt's hitting the gym again) next week!!

4. John 16:12-
I really feel I grew closer to the Lord this year! There is always room for more growth, but I have enjoyed my journey to get closer to Him! I will continue this one!!

Eh- this was back and forth! I tried to be organized as much as I can, but also not be so anal about it all!
I was happy with the outcome!!

I found this fun questionnaire recap I thought I would do!!
1. What did you do in 2012 that you had never done before?
