Last December, Patty and I decided to challenge ourselves. We committed to run one race a month for an entire year! I’m proud to report, this past Saturday, despite the crummy weather, yucky cold, and lack of sleep from a Christmas party the evening before, we reached our goal!
Each and every month of 2014 we ran a race. It wasn’t easy; it took a great deal of planning, time, commitment, follow-through and money (racing isn’t cheap.) Was it worth it? Yes! I proved to myself that I am able to do so much more than I ever imagined. I am so thankful that Patty was with me on this journey; having a running partner by my side helped to keep me accountable and motivated.
Here are some of my favorite racing memories of 2014:
I have a wall full of bibs, fancy hanging medals and tons of fantastic memories. I’m so thankful for this wonderful experience, for my family who supported me, my running partner who encouraged me, my legs for staying strong and all my Runit sisters who ran along beside me!
