-ran double-digits for the first time in 7 years
-I started having an asthma exacerbation in October, which still hasn't cleared up entirely
-we moved to a new apartment
-I ran a 1/2 Marathon with my best friend from high school!
-Ross surprised me with a one-day trip to Ft. Worth before heading to Amarillo for a belated Christmas vacation

Now that the bulk of the holidays are over and the New Year is approaching, it’s a fun time to reflect on our accomplishments from this past year. It's been so fun to look back on 2010 via my blog. It was a hard year, but I like to think I grew a lot.

What did you do in 2010 that you’re the most proud of?

I think my own answer would be my 10k in September. I trained well, took care of my body, and pushed myself to do something I couldn't have done a year ago!
