Favorite Memory: At our reception, Tim and I sat at our sweetheart table while everyone ate and just looked around. Tim took out his phone and we videoed for a minute, but we just sat. We took in everything around us and looked at all the people that loved us enough to be there for us on our special day. That will forever be my favorite moment of 2012.
Favorite trip with Tim: Our Honeymoon! We went to Kauai, Hawaii and left no corner of that island unturned! We explored by boat, by car, by ATV, by kayak, and by foot. It was the trip of a lifetime (until we take another one).
Favorite trip with friends: My Bachelorette Party to Las Vegas! What a fun weekend, and what amazing friends I have to share in this celebration with me! I know so many other of my friends would have loved to have been there, but I was lucky that so many were able to share in this trip and/or the wedding. I can't wait for the next one (which will be Ashley, my friend on the far right below)!
Favorite Race: I pick two! I loved the Rock n Roll St. Petersburg because it's where I set my current half marathon PR, but I also loved the Gasparilla Beck's Light Challenge because of the accomplishment of running a 15k, 5k, and half marathon all in one weekend!
Favorite Run: My favorite run this year was my first 20 miler of my Disney Marathon training cycle. I ran it down in Madeira Beach, and part of it was the Holiday Halfathon. I ran 6 miles before the race and a mile after the race. It wasn't a beautiful run; it was hot, humid, and sticky. What made it perfect, though, was that I did it! It was a personal moment of pride, and though I did it again, the first time was definitely the best!
Favorite non-competitive running event: Though the Color Run was tons of fun, it's Pretty Muddy that takes the cake for me. The mud, the girls, and the silliness made a great combination! I loved getting muddy, and I'll be back next year!
2012 has been epic. Looking back through iPhoto to pick out what I want to highlight has made me realize how thankful I am for my husband (ah!), new and old friends, my family, fun events and trips, and my ability to run!
Though I can't figure out how to fit them into "favorites" and don't want this post to go on forever, I can't forget these events from 2012:
Running the Disney Marathon Relay (and getting the taste of the marathon finish line that would lead me to signing up for my first one coming up)//Getting involved with Tampa Blogger events//My Bridal Shower//Our trip to Chicago//Our Rehearsal Dinner//Women's Half Marathon//Our first Christmas together
What a year it has been! I can't even wrap my head around it. This year has just flown by! I can't wait to see what 2013 has in store. 2012 has left some massive shoes to fill, but I'm going to do everything in my power to make it even better!
I'm going to do a separate post today following up with my December and 2012 goals, and then I'll post my commitment and goals for 2013 tomorrow.
