January 2009 Recap

One down, eleven to go!

I've been reading some other recaps on the month of January and wanted to jump on the bandwagon. Seems the consensus is that January sucks. Well, I think it usually does for me too - typically the resolutions are not quite in place yet, I'm in a post-holiday slump and it is cold and nasty out. Luckily, this year January turned out to be quite spectacular. My recap:

  1. I had a fun New Years Eve party with friends and rock climbing and booze.
  2. I got engaged on January 2nd. (And booked a honeymoon!)
  3. I spent a lot of time in the gorge driving around and seeing beautiful things.
  4. I organized my closet.
  5. I had a great race and a PR in my half marathon.
Aside from that I feel like I've had fun in general, being able to enjoy Portland (my new and favorite city!) through thick and thin. I've been able to spend time with new friends that have become great friends. I am having a good 2009 and have lots more fun ahead. Thanks for reading and commenting and joining on the ride.

Peace out!
Emily

Looks like a great 2009 so far!

Great job again in the half marathon - who would have thought that your AP would be faster in a HM than it was in the Shamrock and Shenanigans 5k in Flushing (8:11 AP and 9th in AG)!

How goes the push ups challenge?

I agree 100 percent that January blows but I am soooo happy for you that you have escaped its wrath. Organized your closet? Major bonus. Also, that was a smokin half marathon the other week. Also, did not know you JUST got engaged. Holy Crap-CONGRATS! That is too cool..

Hope February is even better for you.
