2011 in perspective

Sunday, January 01, 2012

2011 was both a good year and a not so good year. My husband was unemployed until November and we had to rely solely on my pay check. It was tight, but we made it. emoticon

I struggled greatly with my weight in 2011 gaining more then 10 pounds during the year. That has been very frustrating and discouraging. I have challenged myself and my sister and brother to get skinny this year. I would really like to finally reach goal weight!

The best part of the year was running a half marathon. When 2011 started it was my goal to just run 5 10Ks, but I got ambitious and decided to start training for a half. I met my goal of 5 10K's and also ran the SOJO Half Marathon. It was the hardest thing I have ever done - but also one of my proudest moments.

Running has become my passion. Being a part of the C25K Graduates Spark Team has been an awesome inspiration to me to keep me out there running and working towards my goals.

Bring on 2012 and a full marathon. This years goals: reach goal weight and run the Deseret News Marathon! emoticon

    Best of luck Corrine. I'm so pleased that you're still running and I'm sure those extra 10lbs will disappear with all the training you must be doing.
