2014 in Review

It’s the last day of 2014 and I’m a little sad to see this year go. It was a fantastic year that went by too quickly, and so many great things happened. Let’s take a look back to see what happened this year.

  • I ran 22 races: eight 5ks, one 5miler, two 10ks, two 15ks, two 10 milers, six half marathons, and one marathon
  • I traveled: Chicago, Vegas, Dallas, Detroit, Toronto, St. Louis, San Francisco, Napa, Corning
  • I PR’d in the 5k, 15k, 10 miler, half marathon and marathon
  • I started trail racing more consistently
  • I hit my highest mileage month of 112 miles
  • I became a member of the Oiselle Flock
  • We got engaged!
  • I ran my second marathon and PR’d by 21 minutes!
  • We welcomed our nephew Vincent into the family

And here’s a look back at the goals I set for  2014.


  • Break 2:00 in the half marathon-Cleveland Half, 1:58!
  • Break 24:30 in the 5k- Nope, but I did get a post college 5k PR!
  • Raise $1,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation-Far from this goal, but I did raise $300
  • Volunteer for a race– Helped with Medina Half Marathon prep
  • PR in all distances– Just about, PR in post college 5k, 15k, 10 miler, half marathon, and marathon!
  • Run at least 6 half marathons– 6 on the dot!
  • Run 600 miles– 872 miles!


  • Try at least 15 new recipes- not even close
  • Plan a vacation for somewhere new-San Francisco and Napa!
  • Achieve and maintain a healthy weight-done!
  • Read at least 10 books – Just 3
  • Donate 1/4 of my clothes– Box is ready to be donated
  • Try something completely out of my element– I finally started lifting
  • Bike at least 20 miles a month- major fail
  • Get back into yoga– most of the year, ready to begin again on January 5th!


  • Own my own domain – done
  • Blog at least 3 times a week– most of the year, yes
  • Update the blog layout – yep!
  • Use a blog calendar– yep, and it helped a ton!
What a year!

What a year!
