2013 in Review: Savouring What Is Left!

As I sit here reflecting upon this past year...

I can't help but be overwhelmed with grateFUlness for those very things that I have been able to live and experience.

My very first FitFluential Meet-Up!
Running a 5k in a banana suit.
Becoming a Daydreams Fitness Wear Sponsored Athlete.
Becoming a Zevia CSP.
Practising patience as I prepared myself for the OPA Ontario Championships
Being grateFUl for the experience to compete at the...
OPA Ottawa Classics with SuperFit!
Running the Spartan Super with friends!
Powering through my very last prep of the year and...
Competing at the IDFA Ottawa/Gatineau Classic.
Learning the importance of disconnecting and restoring balance.
Learning to step back and be more present.
Riding 100km on my bike.
Having FUn at the Colour Run with the Fam!
Hiking up Mount Marcy.
Running 29 birthday kilometresafter losing my running mojo for over 6 months.
Refreshing my look ;)
Learning to slow down and savour life.
Learning the importance of rest.
Tackling some home projects.
Learning how to loaf around the house!

If anything...

The past 365 days have been filled with many things that have led to my growth as a person and...

I am forever grateFUl and appreciative for everything that I have come to learn throughout it.

As we make our way into the New Year (and as I get ready for a little getaway with SuperFit)...

My goal, in this very moment, is to...

Savour every little bit that is left of 2013.

As I return here in 2014....

I look forward to all the things we will experience together near and far! (Wherever you are!)

As I simply wanted to check in with you today, in telling you that my holidays have been FUbulous...

I also wanted to say...

Thank you all so much for making 2013 what it was! (I am so so grateFUl!)

Happy New Year my friends! (May it be filled with health, happiness and lots of love!)

One last FUnny face before I go ;)

Questions FU You...

What are some of your highlights for 2013?
Plans for New Years Eve?

**Reminder: I will be slowing down with my blogging over the holidays, but will remain moderately active on twitterinstagram and facebook. I'm going to take this time to re-charge, in both body and mind, and will do what I can, when I can ;)**
