My kids and my running have continued to be the bright spots in my life.
We celebrated Little Diva's seventh birthday, Little Dude's third birthday and Christmas all in the same week. These events were good distractions for all of us and it was fun seeing the kids get excited about their special days.
December was the first month that I didn't log over 100 miles for the month ... but I still ran. I fit it in when I could and when I felt up to it. When I didn't fit it in, I didn't beat myself up about it. I ended 2010 with 1,505.7 miles (105.7 miles past my goal for the year).
My running goals for 2011: You may recall that I had hoped to run a half marathon (my favorite distance) every month this year and a marathon or two on top of that. Due to the change in circumstances, time commitment and money, I won't be able to achieve that goal this year. I still plan on racing the Icebreaker Indoor Half Marathon this month and several more over the summer. I hope that this will give me the opportunity to do more running on my own, meet up with some running groups, discover some new favorite routes and spectate more local events (and cheer YOU on!). I still would like to reach 1,500 miles again this year.
I hope to return to Running Diva Mom shortly, with more product reviews and giveaways. I have so many sponsors that have already commited to working with me and this blog. I can't wait to share these new companies and cool products with you in the very near future. Thanks for your patience.
