Bittersweet

January 2, 2012 Favorites 3 Comments

Bittersweet is how I would describe 2011. More sweet than bitter, as it turns out. I’ll take it. It’s the best anyone can hope for, right?

BITTER

Taking care of Argus and his cancer

Nagging shoulder injury, causing pre-race stress

Argus dying

Shitty run + missing race goal by 2 minutes at Barb’s 70.3 (see also: Argus dying)

Signing up for Ironman Canada (This might be sweet, but right now I’m terrified.)

The run-in with the sea urchins while on vacation.

SWEET

Winter fun in Tahoe

6th Annual Sisters Trip!

Wildflower fun and race success

The dogs and children I watch

Clowning around with friends

Awesome swim + bike splits at Barb’s 70.3

Mexico vacation

New puppy!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I live a charmed life. My body continues to fulfill me and all the crazy shit I ask it to do; I do not take my health for granted. I am fortunate to have people who love me and people who I love. And in many cases, these paths intersect. I’m so grateful.

The year ahead is filled with such promise and I intend to live each day fully. I hope you’ll do the same.

Happy new year!

    My one word summary for 2011 = HEALING! Healing from grief and loss. Discovering the healing benefits of yoga. Reconfirming the healing benefits of good friends. Even red wine has some healing properties! 2012 = New Year, New Discoveries!

  3. [...] my year-end recap, I mentioned a certain “souvenir” that I picked up on our Sayulita [...]
