A Thai Farewell to 2012

It's the last day of 2012 and I'm sitting on a balcony overlooking the ocean, in Thailand, drinking a post-run beer with my boyfriend. This year's been pretty good to me and today's finale is tough to beat!

2012 saw fast times (PRs across all distances!!), big steps forward in my training, mostly good health, and opportunities to give back to the sport I love. Equally important, this year I spent lots of quality time with family and shared many fun times with friends old and new. I sure have a lot to be thankful for! While 2012 may have been my best year yet, I'm hesitant to speak too soon, as 2013 is shaping up to be a mighty fine year itself!
As I'm reflecting on 2012, I'm thankful for all the joy I've experienced in the past year, and I eagerly look ahead to 2013's adventures!
