Was it as great for you as it was for me?

2017 was amazing!!!!! It brought me many curves-slow, long, fast, tight; I ran to and through them all. I paced a half-marathon and made an amazing forever friend whom I continue to run with! I had a top-10 age group finish in my first triathlon since pregnancy. I recognized in the spring that the 5K is presently my perfect distance and shifted my focus to a 5K PR that I am chasing through 2018 and into 2019. In doing so, I surrendered to living that what I have is adequate and what it takes. I reclaimed my liberty from sweets slavery and am clean eating, inching on my peak Ironman weight. To run fast, I returned to functional, plyometric, strength, and jump training. On December 28th, during a jump training session, I negative-split a 0.75 m interval segment by 34 seconds!! It was an awesome sweat!!!!! I literally ran out of a chilly 2017 on December 31st at the inaugural Rockin’ Resolution Race presented by USA FIT in Round Rock, Texas; it was fun and refreshing!! Borrowing the zest of the infant determined to walk, I fell many times, chose action, and am again forever running!!! In short, 2017 was transformative!!!
