What a whirlwind year! It feels like it was just 2014 to me!
There is one word that can summarize my entire 2015: Change.
Overwhelming, exciting, joyous change! As I take these few days to reflect, I can see in the end, God always has the best plans.
Devin and started to talk about moving in with each other at the beginning of the year. After a wonderful Christmas in paradise, it helped us to decided that next big step in our relationship. We started looking for townhomes to make our first home.
I spent a cold January weekend in Clearwater Florida with my very bestest of friends. We ran our first half marathon together and just enjoyed being able to spend a few days together.
Then in the midst of one of the coldest February’s on record, Devin popped the question post run – on Valentine’s Day. Read the full story here Remember our house hunt? We found out we were approved for our rental the day of our engagement. Meant to be!
March went full swing into wedding planning, moving, and also getting my RRCA certification. Interested in training with me? Send me a message!
I was able to enjoy one of the prettiest Cherry Blossom 10 milers with peak blossoms! Definitely a treat living in the DC area.
Travel was a big part of 2015 as well. New Orleans, Boston, Florida, Chicago, and Seattle were crossed off the list.
…beignets for days – NOLA style
visiting the iconic finish line
enjoying all the healthy eats in Seattle
the most perfect Chicago summer day
Travel also included wedding planning at Jekyll and bachelorette party fun.
For my workouts?? As the year progressed, I took a bit of a hiatus from racing and focused on strength and HIIT training. My 5am workout game became must stronger thanks to Devin! I’ve also enjoyed seeing my body change as I’ve built strength.
2015 has been a fun and life changing year with many ups and downs. I’m so thankful for all the challenges that taught me to be stronger and the beautiful moments that gave me such joy
80 days from today I will marry the love of my life and then who knows what the rest of 2016 will bring. I can’t wait to find out!
How was your 2015?
