Nonetheless, I had some fun this year. In April, I ran a fantastic trail half marathon. The hubby and I did a little mountain biking, and I was a top contender in our office walking challenge this summer. We ran a naked 5k, the Color Run, the Grand Rapids Mud Run, and the Warrior Dash.
With the Grand Rapids Sport and Social Club, I played dodge ball, kick ball, broom ball, flag football, and volleyball. I also made some great new friends.
For the number lovers out there, 2012 saw:
- 102 miles of biking
- 352 miles of running
- 214 push ups
- 172 miles of walking/hiking
- 64 miles (or the equivalent) of other sports
In 2013, we also plan to keep the traditions of the GR Mud Run and the Warrior Dash alive. We may throw in a Zombie Dash somewhere and maybe an adventure race. In any case, we should have some fun events to look forward to and some solid goals to keep us on the fitness track.
My vacation time over the last few weeks as been so renewing. Not necessarily restful, but I've embrased the free time to get out for some hikes, some weight lifting, some skiing, some snow runs. Work in 2013 is going to be crazy, but I am itching to maintain a good workout routine despite the fatigue of stressful office hours.

Thanks for a great year, and welcome the new one! Happy New Year 2013!
