Sorry to be slow posting again this week. I had a nice (in my own humble opinion) all typed up on my iPad but the app crashed and I lost all my changes! I am retyping a slightly varied version with another app (Blogsey) and hope it does better. If you have any suggestions on any experiences you might have had blogging on an iPad, let me know.
I thought for my last post of the year, I would look back on the year. It helps me to realize what progress I have made and be greateful for how the year went.
This was my first race after working back from an injury. It was a wet slushy run but I came in third in my age group. And in case you were wondering the we're more than three people in my age group. :)
Several Great Hikes
I had a great time on several hikes this year. With all the snow we had this spring, we had to be creative on our hikes, but all of them were great. The highlights were:
September Timp Hike with Paul and Gordon
The Kings Peak hike was the highlight because it completed my Three Peak Challenge that started me on this journey. If you noticed, my brother Gordon was a part of my hiking. He's a great brother and we've had some great times together.
Two Half's Don't Make a Whole
At least as far as a marathon goes. I ran two half marathons this year. Hobble Creek and the Halloween Half. Both were a challenge to complete, but I was able to finish both of them.
I have had a lot of positive experiences this year. More than I could have ever imagine! Thanks for following along with me! I would be interested to hear of some of your highlights of the year. Feel free to comment. Next week a look ahead as we celebrate a new year! Happy New Year to you all!
Hang in there and I will too!
