    I've been working on my list of goals for 2012 and thought I would try something different. Instead of coming up with specific goals for the year, I thought I would try different goals each month. Some may hang around longer than a month, but I will at least give them their 30 days due.
    My running goal - the only one going the entire year is several things combined.  It is a goal to reach...

    I have been going back and forth trying to decide my word for 2012.  Last years word CHALLENGE really worked out well for me.  I challenged myself throughout the year to do things out of my comfort zone and now have a great year of memories and I'm more willing to try something new!
    This year I was tossing around words like Embrace, Enlighten, Educate, Trust, Belief to see which one would stick,...

    With the new year around the corner, we needed to firm up our plans to reach our goal of 12 half marathons in 2012.  Trying to plan around events known and unknown for the upcoming year has been a struggle... we've chosen over 12 races to give ourselves options if life gets in the way of our plans.
    A few not on the list, but still in consideration are the Disney Princess, The Nike Womens in San Francisco,...

    In talking with my favorite farmer up the road a few months back, he had mentioned that his birthday was December 15th, and, as any female would do, I put that in my memory for a later date, because I knew I would be going back to it!
    Soon December was upon us, and I began counting down to his birthday. What do you get someone for their 89th birthday? I kept asking myself this question...  but...

    I don't think I'll ever get bored on visiting New York City. There is always something to see, always something going on, and at Christmas time... always busy!
    The tree at Rockefeller Center
    We arrived early, and got a quick tour of the city from our bus driver... seeing the new building going up at the 911 site, and how much progress they've made, since it was just a year ago I was here!
    We...

    Today Ryan would be 24 years old. It's hard to believe, since I only knew him as a sweet, small boy...
    In keeping his memory alive I enjoy paying it forward throughout the day and sharing Ryan's story. This year we are also looking into building a scholarship for Ryan that will continue to keep his story and memory alive!
    one of my favorites
    Happy Birthday Ryan, hope your getting lots of cake!

    And so yesterday was the day I met one of my 2011 goals of running 1000 miles!
    It was an awesome feeling, and I could have even cried, but didn't, as I finished running 10 miles, on the treadmill no less! And not only did I reach that goal, but I ran those 10 miles in 97 minutes, which is just shy a 10 minute mile, and for me, and 10 miles.... that's pretty darn good!
    So now here I am on this...

    Ahh, some time to play...
    I had an idea as soon as I looked at the January Work in Progress kit, and with my stash of mini books started to play.
    I first painted the chipboard book with red paint, and then sprinkled with glitter, only to find I didn't like the look as much as I thought, so I painted another coat over that and fell in love.
    and quotes are always my favorite to put a mini together...
