15 Ways 2015 Rocked My Socks

The first time I ever started a blog was in 2008 with the sole purpose of creating a year-in-review post. I love that it was these types of posts that launched me into the blogosphere! It's fun for me to reflect back and I had a really amazing year! I spent the last couple of years treading water, not really moving forward in regards to my personal goals, so I am happy with the way this year shook out. My goal for the future is to just keep progressing and moving forward.

1. I practiced Yoga with Lorna Jane Clarkson. This was a pretty cool opportunity. Lorna Jane was in from Australia visiting her Dallas North Park store. I recruited my BFF for a morning of Yoga and a meet and greet with Lorna Jane.

2. We built the ShredShed. What do you do when you don't have room in your home for a home gym? You build one in your backyard, of course.

4. Ran the Pittsburgh half marathon with hubby (his first)! Crossing the finish line holding his hand was one of best moments of my year.

5. Ran the Fort Worth Flavor Run with my BFF and friends! That green mustache took a lot of scrubbing to remove! 

6. I passed the NASM personal trainer certification exam! A major goal accomplished!

7. I visited the ocean and...

I attended IdeaWorld Fitness Convention and BlogFest with SweatPink and...

Highlights from BlogFest

Worked out with Gabby Reece!

8. We bought a new (to us) car!

9. We celebrated our ten year wedding anniversary. I had to try on the dress to see if it still fits. It looked much better in 2005 with less snags and wrinkles. I looked better with less snags and wrinkles back then too.

10. I led a fitness class at My Fit Foods.

11. Celebrated my 41st birthday. (Seriously. when did I get so old?)

12. I visited my sister in Las Vegas and ran the Rock 'n' Roll half Marathon. It was so cold and windy but one of the most amazing half marathon experiences of my life!

13. I ran the Fort Worth Thanksgiving Day 5k with hubs.

14. I went to San Antonio with Toyota to run the Rock 'n' Roll half marathon. It was my toughest race of the year but an amazing weekend adventure!

15. I attended the Road Runners Club of America coaching certification course and passed the exam!

Bonus of the year: I signed a contract as a 2016 Trainer Ambassador with Premier Protein!

Thanks so much for following along. 2015 was a great year and I am looking forward to 2016! How was your year?
