I had a blog all ready to drop on Friday around Noon. One of my merry, silly ramblings about a variety of asinine things.
While I sat in the chair at the dentist waiting to have a renegade wisdom tooth yanked, the nurse came in looking horrified. "There was just a massive school shooting" he said "of kindergartners..." I was aghast and had no words.... He mentioned that his daughters were in school at that moment, in kindergarten and 2nd grade. I could see that he wanted nothing more than to run out the door straight to them, and it was heartbreaking.
Needless to say, I decided to put the emergency brake on my lighthearted post...
Now that a couple days have gone by I've decided to jump ahead a little in my best of/worst of series. (I was saving this post for last...) No, I don't have kids but I have a wonderful family and the very best of friends. I'm thankful for them every day and huge horrible tragedies make me shut up and reflect on how very, very lucky I am.
My favorite moment/s from 2012 ALL have to do with my truly wonderful acquaintances.
Some of you I've known forever, and some only for a short time.
And you all are the absolute freaking best...
Clearly, THE BEST of 2012 was spending time with my family and friends. (running. and eating. hah)
Here are a few good moments...
|Apparently I talked the WHOLE TOWN into running this year...|
I ran by myself for SO LONG and NEVER want to again!
Our crazy group of super fast people was the best!
|My Sister and my DAD!!!|
I love that they both dusted off their shoes and ran a bunch of races this year.
It's clearly a genetic problem. As is looking fabulous, duh...
|It was not a solitary running season by any means.|
My favorite thing is saying "so, there's a little race this weekend.." And having ALL the people show up!
|Yes, running is important.|
But so is eating EVERYTHING and taking pics for daily mile and facebook
If pics don't show up on the interwebs then it didn't happen.
|And yes, more friends and more eating.|
ALL THE FOODS.
Pasta, cookies, bread, more bread, more cookies, I like these people!!
|My favorite boys!!!|
At the end of a great race, at the end of what was quite a year...
