2010 recap

2010, you were quite a year.

As I looked over this blog from the last year, I noticed a decrease in posts from about July onward – not surprising, as I was taking 12 hours a semester. That was to be expected.

What I did find surprising, however, was how much I had forgotten in such a short time.

Therefore, without further ado, personal highlights from 2010:

* Husband was offered his dream internship for his counseling master’s degree. It was an answer to our prayers and still is.

* The family Chihuahua, Che-che, turned 16. She will turn 17 March 26.
* We got a new car!! (See right.)

* Our Twentysomethings Sunday school class merged with the Thirtysomethings – and now we have an active Pathfinders class!

* My BR cousin and his wife had their first child, a son; and my Memphis cousin and his wife adopted a little boy.

* Our good friends S and T married in New Orleans, and we both were attendants in the wedding.

* Rin and I ran our first half marathon in New Orleans with a time of 2:49:07. While she will be unable to participate in the one next month, she is looking forward to getting back in the running game soon.

* I ran my first trail run, the KD Shamrock Trail Run, with a time of 35:40. It wasn't what I wanted, but I still felt accomplished after it.

* Attempted to complete a triathlon – biked inside (and got a new road bike).

* Ran the Peach Festival 5k and had a PR – 31:30.

* Started training for my second halfie (which will be in February).

* Husband ran his first 5K for the American Cancer Society with a time of 36:30.

* Ran my first 10K, the Autumn Breeze, with a time of 1:05:13.

* Hurt my ankle – my first runner’s injury – but learned a lot about patience and keeping God the Lord of my life, not running.

* After many months of prayer, my academic council approved my Plan of Study.

* Started and finished my residency between June and December and didn't kill anyone.

* The Saints won the Super Bowl!!!

Despite the changes I feel are coming with 2011, with God, I am ready.

YAY for dream internships! When I was in grad school for counseling I loved when my friends would get their dream internships.
