Slower than I was before the stress fracture, but atleast I’m running! One question: why, oh why do I have to live in a place that is surrounded ENTIRELY by hills? No wonder I had killer leg muscles before the injury.
I was hoping to go spend some of the New Year’s Eve celebrations with Caitlin, but Dave and I decided to spend the evening at home. He’s out getting bubbly and stuff to make Chinese food for us!
Since I just started blogging in September, I can’t link you to monumental posts from 2009, but I can share with you some highlights (please keep in mind that I forgot most of what happened before the blog…)
In April, I flew for the very first time! And not only was it the first time, but I was by myself and went from Pittsburgh to San Jose to spend my 23rd birthday with my best friend, Stacey!
Yea, I know Las Vegas isn’t really our kinda scene, but Dave was the captain of his school’s steel bridge design team, and they made it to nationals (which were in Vegas over our anniversary). So, free trip for Dave! I’m all over that!..naturally the Enginerd wanted to see the Hoover Dam and building of the new bridge!
Open return, we immediately moved from the college town to another (better) college town. Best move EVER.
(Still missing one roomie, tho!)
December has been quiet, but satisfying! I’m loving my husband, my dog, my family, my job… it’s just all-around great. God has been so good to me!
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I will hope in Him.’”
