2013 Most Memorable Moments


Seeing as 2013 is on the way out, I felt compelled to do a little blurb about my most memorable moments of 2013.  So here they are and I warn you, it’s all about me!

January to March – running during the early morning hours with my friends.

April – me and Simon Whitfield (Google him if you don’t know who he is) after the Vancouver Sun Run in April.

May – Vancouver BMO Half Marathon – ran a personal best and the weather was stunning!

June – local triathlon – won my age group – I was the only one in my age group –  lol!

August – I started this blog and ran the Emperor’s Challenge mountain race (20km).  Came in 2nd in my age group and 6th overall out of the women (and there were more than 10 women, 376 to be exact – 46th out of 586 runners).

September – bought my first SUP/kayak and fell in love with paddling…

September cont’d – lots of bears and Kobi’s birthday party – she turned 2!

October – Goodlife Fitness Victoria Half marathon.  Ran into my cousin Nate at the start line (totally random).  He passed me at 18km.

November – Vancouver Historic Half, came in second in my age group.

December – snow…

And I ran 1,004 miles in 2013.  The last 6 miles were obtained December 28, 2013!!  I haven’t run since, but I will run tomorrow.

Happy New Year, happy running and all the best in 2014 everyone!

I live in northern British Columbia, Canada. I found my dog Kobi in 2011 when she was only 5 weeks old and we've been having running adventures ever since.

  1. Happy New Year to you too! Thank you for sharing your adventures, it’s been a pleasure following you. You’ve had a fantastic year in 2013 by the sounds of it, so bring on 2014!

  2. Thanks! And thanks for following me. I hope 2014 is as much fun, hopefully it will stop snowing at some point.

  3. Awesome running year- great that you went over 1,000 miles!! And, btw, you pics are beautiful- I cant wait to go on my outdoor run later!

    • I realized I was close to 1000 miles in early December and kept at it as it’s been a goal for years to have a 1000 mile year, never thought I’d get there. Enjoy your outdoor run!

  4. What a great year! I thought about you and all your snow the other day on my run and passed some cactus patches. It really is cold here, despite that!

  5. Congrats on a fantastic year and Happy New Year to you! Funny to think we were running at some of the same events. I did the Sun Run and BMO this year as well! Cheers to a year filled with many more running adventures 😀

    Also, I’ve nominated your blog for the Liebster Award! Check out my latest post; you deserve it! 🙂

  6. Great pictures and memories! My goal this coming summer is to learn to SUP and make Sam do it with me. I am very jealous of your SUP/kayak.

    • It was a fun year! You will love to SUP and it would be so cool if Sam did it with you too. I would love for Kobi to SUP or kayak with me, she doesn’t sit still very well so we’ll see how it goes. I will for sure be trying her out on it this summer.

  7. Congratulations on a fabulous year!!! I have loved reading your…or should I say Kobi’s blog!!! I am looking forward to hearing about all your adventures!!! And again, I hope the new year brings you and your family…much love, joy, happiness and good health! Heres to another fabulous year!!!
