2014 Recap

This past year was pretty good, considering I have been killing myself in grad school.  I got a few races under my belt and kept at in my Master’s program.  I don’t feel like I have many “big moments” to recap other than races but I’ll do my best!


Rob and I both turned 30 this year!


I got better at crochet and started to knit!


I spent 6 awesome weeks in Florida relaxing and learning all about my chosen field.  And finished 3/4 of the Master’s program.  Almost done!!


I did my first Triathlon, the Pedal Paddle Run, in September.


I ran the Atlantic City 10K in October, my 4th time participating in this race series!


I ran the Philadelphia Half Marathon for the first time in November!


Overall, not a bad year!  Now, off to make 2015 even better!

  • A 10k, half marathon and your first triathlon all in one year are awesome accomplishments, especially while you’re slaving over a whole lot of school! (I feel your pain. ;P ) Props to you for being 75% done with your master’s program! You’re on the home stretch! <3

    Best wishes to you for 2015, and I hope you have a very happy new year! :D!
