What a great year it’s been! There were many great races (and a few PR’s!), but I think for Jason and I, 2014 will be remembered as the year we decided to make a major change in our lives, leave our jobs in New York and move to Cape Cod!
Here are some of my highlights from 2014!
In January I completed the Inaugural Dopey Challenge…
…and in February Jason and I went on our first Disney Cruise where I ran the Castaway Cay 5k!
March brought a new half marathon PR of 1:54:42!
…and in May I took a bit of a running break and spent more time on my yoga mat.
In June I tackled my first triathlon – it went, ummm….ok.
July was a great month!
Jason and I came up to Cape Cod (just for our few weeks of vacation at the time!) and began running with the local Marathon Sports Run Club where we met some of our great new Cape Cod friends!
We also spent a lot of time paddle boarding and on the beach (where we came up with Jason & Danielle’s Guide to Beach Etiquette)!
In September Jason and I took a trip to California for the Disneyland Half Marathon, we ran the 10k together and I ran the half marathon with my friends Daniel & Tana (and I had my first mid-race face plant!).
Through October I struggled with my training for the New York City Marathon and stressed about a lot of the logistics of the race…
…but come race day in November everything went smoothly and I even managed a marathon PR! (Followed by a trip to the medical tent!)
But November wasn’t quite over…the weekend after NYCM I was off to Florida for my 4th Wine & Dine Half Marathon!
To finish up 2014, tonight we’ll be celebrating Madison’s anniversary – 8 years ago on New Year’s Even Madison came to live with us! (You can read Madison’s full arrival story HERE in a post I wrote last New Year’s Eve!)
