Hello friends and Happy New Year's Eve!
Today I want to share some of my running highlights of the year. Many great things happened this year for me. For example, I was able to log a decent amount of miles despite being pregnant, I completed three races, I participated in a calendar shoot, I gave birth, etc. I tend not to be a numbers person because I believe that a good training session is based on the quality of the workout versus the amount of miles, however I surprised myself with these numbers since I was pregnant for most of the year. So, let's see...it all began in January...
-Miles completed: 195 miles
