Accomplishment of which I am most proud: Besides actually starting the fitness hobby in the first place, it's easily running my first half marathon with my dad. I didn't meet my goal time, but I finished the race (and so did he) despite soaring temperatures, minimal training, and a lack of properly-fitted shoes! I proved to myself that I can complete 13.1 miles, and now I'm itching to do it again!
Primary goal for next year: To be more consistent. To actually *train* instead of just running when I feel like it.
Speaking of training, tomorrow I'll be posting a look back at my experience with cross-training this past year, including fitness classes and nutrition, before wrapping up my Year in Review with a look at my blog's performance in its first year! See you tomorrow!
