I just got back from my last run of the year!

 My December: 54.24 total miles :)
And my year: 579.78 miles!!  (I'm half tempted to go out for a quick run around the parking lot to get to 580!)  And look at my 2013 compared to other years...WOW  I thought I was slacking this year, but I guess not!
Here are a few of my favorite photos from the year:
I ran the Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon in February
I also ran the Rock n Roll half in March, but not photos....

Awww itsn't Wimsey a cutie...

Mom and I did a virtual 5k together (can't remember the month...)

Mom and I did the We've Got Your Back 5k in May
We also did the Twilight Festival 4 mile in June

In July I had friends over for dinner for the first time ever

Friends of the WO&D 10k on my birthday (July)
In August I did the South Lakes 10k
I did the Dulles Days 5k in September (see me over there in the blue?)

The Perfect 10k in September
and the Run for the Parks 10k in November!

pretty kitties

poor Gussie puts up with so much (Gussie is my mom's dog)

I ran in the snow! (twice!)
and...I ran in the snow in Ohio!

I built a 3-D puzzle (and discovered how much fun it is!)

Gussie and I taking a walk in December

Happy New Year!!!
I plan to start my new year with a run (I plan to end it with a Disney movie marathon and Cherry Pepsi) how will you be starting the new year?

Snow running and DIY

It's snowing here!!!  (well it was...)  Monday worked started 2 hours late, but that's my normal start time so no benefit to me; today work was cancelled...but it was my day off anyway for working Saturday.  Sunday and today I got to run in the snow.  Running in the snow is so much better than running in the cold!



The other day my friend pinned a graduation tassel ornament on Facebook.  Today at JoAnne's I saw clear plastic ornaments and made some: 


H.S. graduation

College graduation
Aren't they cute?  They were really easy to make also.  I did cut a slit in the cap to slid the string from the top of the tassel through.  It was hard to get the horizontal year through the top of the ornament, but that was the only trouble I had.
