Today is Day 6 of the Blogger Challenge with Fitness Cheerleader and today's question is:
What are your highs and lows from this past year?
I looked over my blog....aka my own person online see what this past year has held.  I really am liking looking back this month.  It is helping me to see that yes there have been times that I have struggled but there have been awesome things too!
  • Finding out I was pregnant with #2!!
  • Getting accepted as a Fitfluential and ZOOMA Ambassador!!!  Seriously this is SUCH and honor for me to be part of both of these groups!!!  Additionally to be accepted as part of the 12 in 2012 group can be added to this, even though my half mary days are being put on hold!
  • Running a 5k PR of 22:38...while dressed as Santa!
  • Getting to attend the Saucony "Find Your Strong" Event
  • Running a half marathon 20 weeks pregnant!
  • Getting my first DNF...but I guess I had a good excuse though since I found out about baby #2 a week before.  After losing our baby just last year, I was extra cautious.
  • Having to move....even though we're only 10 minutes away I HATE moving!
Your turn....Highs and Lows from last year!
I thought I might add a Monday Motivation from the past year since it is Monday and all!!!


  1. I love she's leading the way with these post prompts too.
    My high and my LOOOOOOOW both involve my sad little piriformis.

  2. Baby #2 is a pretty spectacular high :-)

  3. It is fun to look back and see all that's happened in a year! Congrats on some great highs - especially baby #2 :)

  4. Congratulations on a great year!! Especially the baby!

  5. Highs: Feel like I've found a new gear in my running engine :) Also, found my "career strong" when I started a new job in January!

    Lows: Mourning the death of our septic tank :(

  6. Highs..running a marathon, getting to do Hood to Coast, son going to kindergarten sister being so far away in Tunisia, recovering from marathon has sucked

  9. The highs outweigh the lows. I'm so proud of you and how hard you've worked (and continue to) work for everything! I admire your determination through it all.
