Happy 2013 everyone! I hope the new year finds you well - it certainly has found me well. 2012 was a pretty good year overall, but was mostly a year to catch my breath and get my bearings. (The new house, the toddler, etc.) After a year like that I'm ready to hit the ground running and make 2013 a great year. 2013 brings the next phase of the house remodel, an Ironman, and who knows what else. I started the year off right with a great bike ride this morning up Mt. Hamilton, and the day was perfectly beautiful, if a bit cold. The last quarter mile of the ride had pretty solid snow covering both sides of the road.
Speaking of training, December was a great pretty good for exercise. My Team in Training effort started off with a swim workout cancelled due to a storm, and I skipped a workout due to cold and rain, and missed some "On Your Own" workouts, but overall it was a strong month. Here's a picture of my training calendar from last month:
As you can see, it was a busy month.
Fundraising also goes well, with over $2,700 raised against my goal of $8,000. That includes five people (or couples) that have donated $200 or more! Thanks to everyone who has donated any amount towards my effort to help find a cure for blood cancers.
