Do what makes you happy…it’s really that easy.

Happy 2013 all! I am not one to make resolutions. This year is no different. I do, however, set goals. This year:

  • Get stronger
  • Stay healthy
  • Stay injury free (continue to train properly & STRETCH)
  • Run the CIM again, and get a better time (MUCH better)
  • BE HAPPY

I think that is about it. My last goal I have been working on since last year. I am 28, soon to be 29 and realized I want to be happy & I am the only one that is going to make that happen. It really isn’t that hard. Happiness to me is living on my own in my cute little apartment, being with friends & family, doing what I want to do when I want to do it, running, working with animals, reading, eating…Lots of things make me happy. I decided to ramble on about these things since it is a new year. I want everyone to be happy, get along,  and be nice. It isn’t hard to do. With so much going on in the world these days sometimes we just have to stop and remember about the simple, little things in life that bring joy. There is a quote from one of my favorite movies that says, “The little things, there’s nothing bigger is there?” I really like that.

Okay, now running…I have been doing great on my weekly runs. I am pretty much back to my normal pace and have had no knee problems! 🙂 I recently discovered a new park near me and ran there the other day. Perfect loop that is just over a mile. Here is a link to my run:

Alright, wanna hear something exciting?? At least to me. I was nominated for a Versatile Blogger Award by veggiereader.wordpress.com. So cool! Thanks so much 🙂 So there are a lot of things to do once you’re nominated, and seeing as how it’s almost been a month since I’ve posted anything I don’t really have time to do all that. But thank you for the nomination! It just makes my happy that people read and like my blog!

One last thing before you scroll down and see the cutest picture of my handsome little Vincent. I signed up for my first run of 2013! It is the Getty Owl Run and this is its second year. The Getty Owl Foundation raises money & awareness for Spinal Muscular Atrophy. This is another reason I love doing runs, it feels really good to help raise money for so many good causes. Here is a link to check it out if anyone is interested: Getty Owl Run

Okay, so how cute is my boy??
