I never imagined when I signed up to run my first half at Disney in 2008 that I would continue running and even sign up for boot camp. Four years later I am still going strong and blog about what I do. Below is a look back at 2010 with some fun facts.

The best thing I did for myself was to sign up for boot camp in February; it was only going to be for 1 month... I'm still doing it.

I was always carrying my water bottle in my hand and the water kept getting warm. Jenny sent me a great bottle with a handle so I didn't have to hold it in my hand. Big improvement!

Three generations of runners on New Years Eve.

The neatest race of 2010 was "Athlete's Helping Athletes" in Atlanta. Everyone was assigned a greyhound to greet them when they crossed the finish line.

The farthest I traveled for a race was to run the Women's Half-Marathon" in St. Petersburg, FL with my sister, Pat.

The number of races that I ran in 2010 were:
  • 10 - 5 K's
  • 1 - Half-Marathon
  • 1 - 10 K
  • 1 - 4.2 mile race
  • Total: 13 races

My most exciting moment in 2010 was winning $500 in the TUF gym contest.

One new thing that I tried this year was Yoga. I didn't like it as well as some of the other training techniques.

The last song that I loaded on my iPod was "The Dog Days are Over" by Florence and the Machine.

Total miles run for the year was 608.97. I've upped my goal for 2011 to 720 miles.
