2013 a Year In Review

I am embarrassed to even write this because I haven't posted anything in such a long time.  2013 was one very busy, crazy, and blessed year. I thought I would just post pictures of the main events that occurred in mine and my families life. We had four new grandchildren born. Kelsey had her first baby, a little boy, in April. Kris and Tiersa had twin sons in August after having 3 daughters. Steven and Marianne had their fourth child in September, a little girl.
Most of our traveling involved flying to Nebraska several times, several trips to California, and a trip to Rome in December.

Running 2012

2012 was a good year for running. It was the first time in the last 5 or 6 years that I didn't have a marathon to train for. I think I liked it. I am in the middle of training for one now and looking back at last year that sounds really good.  I ran in some pretty awesome places last year and I thought it would be fun to share. I ran a total of 1049 miles and did that during 184 different workouts. 

Seattle WA.. I ran there on a treadmill.

The last and final London's Run Half Marathon. I loved running in the cotton fields.
Ragnar relay.. It was a lot of fun but it got really warm which made it really hard .

Half of our team. We were waiting at the finish for the rest of our team to come in.  The greatest group of women you would ever want to run with for 32 hours. 

The first Phoenix Half Marathon. I love love loved this race.
Changzhou China.. This is the school where Kelsey & Joey taught school. I ran on a treadmill at our hotel.

Shanghai, China.. An amazing city but very polluted. I ran on a treadmill in the hotel.

Bangkok, Thailand. Hotel treadmill running.
Highway 1 in Solana Beach, CA. I love running there.
Mapleton, Utah. Another beautiful place to run.

As you can see we had a year of many exciting adventures. I don't know if I will ever be able to say I have ran in so many different places in one year ever again. It was a blast.
