My birthday is tomorrow. I will turn 31 years old. Where does the time go?
Here are just a few of my favorite random things about my 30th year, in no particular order:
Anything involving my running group in Massachusetts
I sure do miss all the amazing people I met and ran with weekly (not all are pictured). They kept me motivated and inspired every day. I'm thankful to have so many of them still encouraging me across the miles.
The time Dave convinced me to ride the Cape Cod Marathon course with him
....and I flipped over my handlebars onto the soft sand. That could have ended badly but I fortunately was right by the beach when I decided to have an accident.
I love how this randomly appeared in my yard last December.
That day I let my young nieces 'fix' my hair.
It was terrifying. ha!
I love that so many of my family members started running!
They've even started racing...and placing in their divisions. Say whaaaat?
I got to visit my dear best friend Janell in Pennsylvania a few times.
I absolutely treasure every moment I spend with her.
I'm counting down the days until her visit here this summer.
I was able to help her put on the Inaugural CJ's Resolution Challenge
+ be a member of TEAM CJ!
If you're looking for a fun, crazy race in January then check it out. Team CJ will also be making another appearance in fall 2015. More info to follow.
My husband won some pretty awesome awards.
I know I don't talk about him or his job often.....but he's pretty rad.
He is a true hero
and that's not just because he puts up with me.
As I kid I missed seeing it by about an hour.
It was just as awesome as I hoped it would be.
p.s. I love the random kid that photo-bombed us.
After 2013 I needed to get back to this race. It was incredible. I am so sad that I can't volunteer in 2015. It's always a highlight of my entire year.
Leaving that job and those people was rough. Can't they just move here?
Jamie and Mike's home.
Our friendship has always been a bit unusual because we've never lived in the same state as one another. I was so happy to be a guest in our best friends home for the first time. Plus running in 2 races during a snow storm was fun.
I really did nothing...except run with them and believe in them.
I love running this hometown race.
I love that my family showed up to support me in the rain storm.
I was able to run in each state I passed through along the way too.
It was difficult to leave Cape Cod but I'm enjoying our adventure here so far. There is nothing quite like this beautiful place. I can't wait to continue exploring.
That is all.
running group in Sitka.
I am excited to be meeting new people here that love running too.
My 30th year was good to me. I can't wait to see what my 31st will bring.
