Damian got his license this year.
My aunt died at the end of April as well. It's still strange to think about the fact she isn't around anymore. I wasn't close to her in her later years, but I was as a child and young adult.
|We loved this house.|
gone and the second was a week ago. These are almost the same
views of our "house" as the above picture with the moving
truck in the driveway.
Happily the place we moved to is in a fantastic neighborhood where we already know several families, it's only 3 block from our old (original) house, so it was (is) nice to be back in our old neighborhood (sorta) and it's closer to Damian's school.
We had a great summer, it was warm and we went to my families lake house in eastern WA where we lived on the water.
I started marathon training over the summer. And ran my first marathon in October. While training for my marathon, I ran all over the place.
Over the freeway
Through the woods
I saw some cool signs on my runs.
I started and stopped yoga multiple times, even at work.
I was attacked by bees and fell . . . hard.
I consistently did morning runs when I needed to.
Running in eastern WA.
Even going to the gym when it was too warm.
Past duck ponds that were affected by the lack of water.
At the lake while on vacation.
In Skagit County where the views are beautiful in the summer.
We had more (and continue to have) car problems this fall, which is and has been a huge drain financially.
In December, Damian got his first job.
I ran in snow for the first time (in eastern WA).
I started the year at 147.
And ended the year fluctuating between 140 and 142.
My total miles for the year (so far) is 856.09, but I am still going to be running for the next week and half. My highest mileage month was September, when I ran a total of 133.5 miles and my lowest (surprisingly) was November when I only ran 36.19. I'm still in shock that November, the month after my marathon, was only 36 miles.
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
