2012 was a busy and intense year, but it was filled with a lot of fun, too. I always love having the blog to look back and see how much I’ve done in a year – not only accomplishments but also to remind myself of fun trips and adventures! Without further ado – here’s 2012 in a nutshell (part 1)!
I wrote about New Years Resolutions vs. Daily Action – I love this post. Take a look, it’s timely right now!
I returned to Chapel Hill to begin my (final) spring semester of grad school. Man, I miss the warm winters there.
Intramural Walleyball (best game ever) started up again. I’m sad I won’t be there to play this year!
One of my BFF’s, Jessica, came to visit me in Chapel Hill. Again – I can’t believe I was wearing a t-shirt in February. I miss you, NC.
Matt and I spent my spring break up in DC on a wedding planning and apartment hunting frenzy. We did our cake and food tasting – mmm – and also picked table settings! We also registered for our gifts – check out the comments on that post if you need advice, it’s really helpful!
Intramural sand volleyball started up. Oh, yes. Going to really miss that this spring, too!
I took my comprehensive exams for grad school. We spent months and months studying for this terrifying test – so much pressure! We found out a few weeks later whether we passed (I did – whew!) or would need to re-take the test.
I ran the Tarheel 10 Miler with my friend Elle. It was so. hilly.
Matt and I ran the 5-ish mile Primal Mud Run – what a blast!
I took my very last biochem exam – yes, this is noteworthy. Hardest subject ever! And then, my grad school girlfriends and I celebrated officially finishing our last semester of grad school coursework at UNC! Bittersweet.
5 seconds after moving in to our new place in DC, I traveled to NYC for a Fitness Magazine Blogger Meet & Tweet.
A week later, I traveled to Massachusetts again to run the Reach the Beach Relay, a 200 mile overnight running relay race, with a team of 11 other blogger buddies, courtesy of New Balance. We had a BLAST. (Leg 1 recap, leg 2 recap, leg 3 recap).
Whew – I’m tired just reading all of this! What a fun trip down memory lane. It’s making me feel very nostalgic!
Stay tuned for part 2! :)
