2015 Year End Review

A quick look back over 2015 before we ring in the new year!

In January I completed the Goofy Challenge and Jason ran his first half marathon

…but once we got back from Florida, we spent much of the rest of January and February buried in snow here on Cape Cod!

Frozen Bay Run

Late in March the snow finally melted and once it did it revealed a layer of trash on my local running path – so I ran and picked it all up!

  1. Ok so clearly the underlying message in this post is that 2015 was the year of the PR in adventures with Christine! 😉 HAHA I crack myself up! Also that photo of you running through the snow blows my mind. It looks like you’re on a glacier or something.
