2009 in Pictures!

Man, this is a lot of reflecting! So I went through my iPhoto and tried to pick out some of the best photos that reminded me of big events that happened throughout 2009. Some are running related and some aren’t. Enjoy! Also, you can click on the pictures and they will pop up. Hooray!

Snowboarding recap will be up on Monday and yes, I have videos of me eating crap. It was a BLAST and I loved it. I can’t wait to go again. I ran a 6 miler this morning without my garmin, it was nice to just run based on feel, it was even drizzling out. I iced my knee after and it’s feeling sub-par, but life goes on. I have no big new years plans, perhaps I will just enjoy a nice evening with my new teapot and my grad school applications. :) I am just not really feeling it this year, plus I know 2010 is just going to be so great so I don’t want to outshine it on the first day!

And I have pink eye. FAIL!

    Great…I feel like I took like 1/4 of these pictures, and I’m not featured in ANY of them.

    That’s fine, I’m taking this handsome mug elsewhere where it’ll be appreciated!

    I’m still taking credit for your awesome Long Beach results. Had I not paced you that first mile you never would have gone sub 4 (kidding).

    So glad we got to know each other in 2009 and I can’t wait to run with you again in 2010, 2011, 2012…. Happy New Years!!

    Oh Danica, I hate myself a little bit for saying it but I feel a little better knowing that some other adult has pink eye too! (on top of it I also have the flu and strep throat. it’s been a below average week) I totally thought little kids and their parents were the only ones to get pink eye. Don’t give it to your other eye like I did!!
