The Goals I set for 2014
Try new recipes more frequently- F: I definitely failed at this goal, I think I've tried maybe 4 new recipes this year
Read 6 books on my Nook- D: I read 3/6 books on my Nook and started a fourth book.
Half Marathon Success: If you would have told me last September when I started training for the 2014 WDW Half that I would end up running five half marathons in 2014 I would have thought you were crazy. I also would have never believed I would be in training for the Goofy Challenge right now. One of my proudest moments was when I was 50 seconds away from running a sub-2 half in my second half marathon of the year back in April. I truly love the half marathon distance and don't find it overwhelming anymore like I once did.
Two 5K PRs: This year I had a PR in the 5K distance in July and then again in November. In July I wanted to PR, but wasn't going to be disappointed if it didn't happen. The course ended up being flat and it was perfect weather for a PR: low temps. In November at the Turkey Trot I had no intentions of trying to PR. I picked what felt like a fast pace in the beginning and just tried to stick with it and it ended up being a PR!
Two years of Nursing Experience: In October I celebrated being a nurse for two years. I've been on a medical-surgical (med-surg) floor since I started. In the nursing world I've reached that golden amount of time on a med-surg floor that will pretty much carry you into any path of nursing you want to go for which is exciting. My patients still tell me almost everyday that I look way too young to be an RN which always makes me laugh.
Travel, Travel, Travel: I started out 2014 traveling to Disney World for Marathon Weekend. In June Em and I went to LBI for a short beach trip. In July my parents, aunt, uncle, Cam and I went to our beloved Outer Banks, NC for a week at the beach. In August we went to Baltimore for a wedding. In October we went to Charlottesville for a concert and then went back to Baltimore for the Baltimore Half Marathon. In November we traveled back to Disney for Wine and Dine Half weekend. Whew! That's a lot of traveling, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
I've already started pondering goals that I want to set for 2015, but more on that in another post.What was one of your favorite moments in 2014? Did you accomplish any goals?
That's all for now!
