What I accomplished in 2010

2010 was one of those up and down years. But I accomplished a lot:

I ran 62 miles. My fastest mile was 10’19” and 29 of my miles were in October as I prepared to run my first 5k. I ran the Race for the Cure in Memphis on the 31st of October and finished just under my goal time of 40 minutes.

I knitted lots of things – socks, shawls and gloves. I finished my white shawl and white opera length gloves before DAR Continental Congress in July and wore them both to Page in Washington – another first.

I went to Knoxville for the first time for State Conference (not my first) and Washington DC for the first time for National Congress (which was a first). I went to Kansas City for a few days to visit with some stitching friends too.

2011 is going to be a good year too. I’m going to knit a lot of socks, and finish my shawl that I started last year. I’m going to Nashville for State Conference where I will serve as a Vice-Chairman of Pages. Probably no DC this year.

I also plan to complete the Gateway to 8k plan and run a few races this year.

I need to get photos of some of my knitting and post them soon. Until then – Happy New Year and may 2011 give you all of the blessings you desire!!


Right – sorry

So this poor blog has been totally devoid of content for six months. It’s been a busy, crazy and yet uneventful six months so let’s just start where we are and move on shall we?

I’ll get some new knitting pictures up here soon. Including photos of the knitted gifts this past Yule. But we are all alive and well. Bogart is still talking his little birdy head off. Both cats are still snuggly and sweet. Especially if you happen to have a heating blanket.

Wishing you a happy and prosperous new year!!
