Happy New Year! Here’s a look back at 2013.
Miles Run: 1,099
Miles Swam: 45
Miles Cycled: 624
A pretty light year in everything but running. I knew after a big 2012, I’d be taking a step back in 2013. Although, in looking at it now, I still got a lot accomplished and had a blast!
Ran Ragnar Keys and took a blog hiatus.
|Team Running Down My Leg|
I came back from my blog break and supported my favorite guy and many friends at the inaugural Best Damn Race.
|Nanci and I|
I make my return to running and realize coming back from a break is tough. I get to see my favorite Redhead at our friend Riki’s wedding and have a blast running the Sarasota Half Marathon with Nanci and Caroline.
|Me and Red|
|Me, Nanci, and Caroline|
Run the Irongirl 5K, mourn with the world at the Boston Marathon tragedy, and complete the St. Anthony’s triathlon as a relay.
Celebrate my nephew’s first birthday and take a vacation with the S.O. to Puerto Rico.
Meghan and I go on our first of what will be many bike rides together, I move in with the S.O., I DNF a sprint tri after THREE flat tires, I decide to run the Jacksonville marathon because Chicago falls through, I run a hot Father’s Day 5K, and I buy a fancy new tri bike. June is a BIG month apparently.
|Meet my new Cervelo P2: Amanda|
I race the Top Gun Sprint Triathlon for the 4th year in a row and follow it up with another sprint triathlon the very next morning.
|I love this group! (And Tim for taking the photo.)|
Register for the Frogman 5K swim and start base building for Jacksonville. Realize it’s gonna be a hot month of training, and race another sprint triathlon.
|Steph and I got to watch dolphins literally swim with the wave in front of ours.|
REGISTER FOR AN IRONMAN!!!!!
|IRONMAN CHATTANOOGA 9-28-2014|
Run, a lot, volunteer at Cystic Fibrosis Cycle for Life, swim in the University of Tampa Master’s Swim Meet, spectate for the S.O. and many friends at the Marine Corps Marathon while dressed as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
|Me, Meghan, and Tori|
|The lovely Caroline and Stay Puft|
Run a 5K and half marathon as training runs/pacer, rock my Spandits!, spectate for Meghan’s first 70.3 and rock Stay Puft with Tori the banana. Lose my wiener at the Women’s Half Marathon and PR my 5K at the Turkey Trot.
|Pacing Big Sis to a new PR|
|LOVE my Spandits!|
|My little wiener, Kat.|
Run some more, make some cookies, host a giveaway, meet MEB, and FINALLY run my marathon.
|Marathon #7 is in the books!|
Whew! What a year!
Hey, that's me! Twice! lol…. You had a great year, I am excited to follow you on your Ironman journey. And hopefully we can get more cool pics of us together. 🙂
It's so crazy to me to think that I had only met you one time at the beginning of the year and how good of friends we've become by the end of the year. So thankful for you! You had a really wonderful 2013, and 2014 is just going to be crazy. I can't wait!
Amazing!! I made the highlights! 😉 you are an inspiration! Thanks for getting me into running! We'll have to run one together one of these days! Happy New Year!!
this makes me smile:) What an amazing year you've had! I know that 2014 is gonna be HUGE for you! Can't wait!!
Awesome year, Beth! I loved looking at all your pictures. You accomplished a lot and I know will accomplish even more in 2014! Can't wait to follow your IM training. I'll be at Chattanooga spectating so can't wait to cheer you on! xo
An excellent year indeed. And way to go on the total running mileage!
You had such an awesome year. I am still jealous of that tri bike, like uber jealous.
So I was talking to a friend of mine at the gym the other day who is a triathlete. He is also doing IM Chatanooga….hmm. I put a bug in my fiances ear about….flying down to spectate…if you catch my sassy subtle drift
What a year! So glad to ring in the new year with you. Looking forward to 2014!
Great recap! And, as Mr. Sinatra would say….
"The best is yet to come…"
Great year Boo, although, we didn't see nearly enough of each other. I'm so proud of you and I can't wait to cheer you on in TN!!!
SPECTACULAR year! I need to see me more in it next year – which means you need to help me swim – GAH!
what a great year! Good luck on your IronMan and on the journey to get there.
What a busy year! "Cutback" pssh. Can't wait to see what 2014 holds.
