Hours from now, we are going to be getting ready to ring in 2017, and kicking the dreaded 2016 the hell outta here. This year had so many ups and downs for everyone, more than previous years and I think we are all ready to start fresh. For me, the highlight of my year was running, and everything about it. I accomplished so much and went above and beyond the goals I set for myself. Some include;
-Running my first half marathon
-New 5k PR
-Running my first marathon
-Running the TCS NYC Marathon!!
That’s quite a lot for one year! A year ago, I had no idea that I would be running marathons as of yet. I sit here and look back at all of the hard work I put in and sometimes, I don’t know how the hell I did it. It’s difficult trying to balance life with training, because such a commitment demands a high level of effort so there is no room for slacking. I met and became friends with so many runners and together we motivate each other from the start all the way to the finish line. The running community is truly one of a kind, and I am proud to be part of such a group of wonderful people.
I have so many amazing things lined up for next year, as well as a few other things I plan to announce with Logging The Miles. I have to say, I am excited for the things to come next year. Keeping an open mind while giving a 120 percent effort in everything that I do. 2017, here we come.
I wish everybody a HAPPY and Healthy New Year, and may we all kick ass in 2017. Love you guys.
Below is my recap of this year in racing, hope you enjoy!
