Pieces of My Year... In Photos

Since the cough and cold medicine has dried out all my creative juices, I thought I would follow in Vanilla's steps and review 2007 "Pieces" style. Are you ready?

Jan 2007 started out slow - not much to report. I had been running for a few months and just starting to get excited about it.

Feb 2007 I ran my first Half Marathon on Super Bowl Sunday in Huntington Beach, CA. My time was 2:04. I loved it! I also did a lot of exciting traveling this month - Costa Rica and Australia!

Mar 2007 This was an exciting month for me. I met The Captain and ran a 10K in Seal Beach the day after, in which I PR'd totally HUNG OVER.

Apr 2007 Just spent the month getting to know The Captain and having fun. Pretty mellow.

May 2007 Stayed at the Phoenician in Scottsdale for a week. Then went to Palm Springs over Memorial Weekend with The Cap. Very relaxing and fun.
June 2007 - My best friend calls me up and talks me into training for a marathon in the fall. I think it's a great idea (uhm... ok?) Also went to Fiji for the first time (AMAZING!)

July 2007 - Spent 4th of July in Newport Beach with friends. This was the last of my flat tummy (proof in the photo). After this, 10 lbs came creeping back - blame it on the Captain for sure!

Aug 2007 - Not much to report. Except EL CAP and I kicked butt in a bowling competition with friends, in which they have yet to pay up!

Sept. 2007 - Spent Labor Day in Vegas with friends. Intense marathon training commencing. And I started this blog!

Oct. 2007 - I ran my first Marathon in Long Beach, CA. 4:45 mins. It was one of my most proud moments in my life, so far. It was such a great day with friends!
Nov. 2007 - Spent a lot of time in Physical Therapy. Trying to get back to where I was with my running, but hitting alot of walls along the way.
Dec. 2007 - I turned 32 yrs old. EEK GADS. Also had a great Christmas spending 80% of it on the freeway.
It's been quite a year for P.O.M. I wish everyone the best in 2008. Let's start thinking about our goals for 2008. Happy Running!

The pics and the year in review was great! Really enjoyed it. I've been MIA from blogging for a while, so just got caught up on all that's been going on. I bet you are glad the holidays are done.

Thanks for talking about the weightloss goals. Reminds me to get back on the wagon, although I wasn't too bad through the holidays.

Happy New Year!!!!
