Goal Completed: Run 13 races in 2013

Last year I set a goal of completing 13 races in 2013. When May rolled around, and I found out I was expecting … I wasn’t sure that I’d be able to finish – but I DID!

About the Challenge. 

Here’s a couple shots from my 13 in 2013 journey (in no order)

First Half Marathon!

Last Pregnant Event – (walked it)

June 2, 2013 (First Pregnant Race!)

When I began 2013, I had dreams of finishing the Goofy Challenge in early January. As you know, I’m currently expecting our first child and due DURING MARATHON WEEKEND! Soo, my 2013 goals had to change. Instead of Marathon Training for the last half of the year, I focused more on the health of myself and Baby Jimenez. I’m pretty excited for her to get here, and to celebrate her first birthday at Disney in 2015 when I’ll finally (Lord Willing) be able to run the Goofy Challenge!

What was your activity level like in 2013? Did you stay active no matter what the challenge or change in plans? 

Our 5th Wedding Anniversary

Today’s post is brought to you by the Number 5!

On this day 5 years ago, I had the privilege of becoming the wife of @cjmnz8. It’s hard to believe that he has been in my life since December 1999. When we met in the dining hall of the summer camp during a staff reunion, I never imaged that he’d be my husband someday. 

As I reflect on the many years of our friendship, relationship and marriage I can only think of one thing… 

The LORD has done great things for us… (Psalm 126:3)

As we anticipate the arrival of Baby Jimenez, I’m thankful for the 5 years that we’ve had with just the two of us. It’s been quite an exciting journey and we are very much looking forward to the next chapter in our story! 

Happy 5th Anniversary Christopher, I love you!
