Welcome to my 2016 year in review blog post. I know it's a bit cliche, but this is a really fun way for me to reflect on the year. I always forget all of the amazing adventures I went on, the races I ran, and fun I had this year. It's nice to scroll through the photos on my computer and really spend time thinking about the past year before jumping into the next. I'm sharing a couple fun things that happened each month in 2016 running, fitness, and beyond!
Snowzilla hit Baltimore in January bringing the best snow on record for the city. It was crazy. I also started coaching at Charm City Run which was definitely challenging with lots of snow and ice on the ground!
I also spent plenty of cold mornings running and working out with November Project Baltimore, which celebrated it's second birthday.
Besides a lovely Valentine's Day dinner in with my boyfriend and some more running, I ran the Nuun Year Dash with a group of fellow Team Nuun runners and some cool people from Harlem Run. It was great to spread the Nuun love and run the FitFam virtual race in person!
March is always when lots of spring races start popping off despite the weather still being a crapshoot. I visited Asheville for the first time and ran the Asheville Half Marathon at the Biltmore Estate-a BEAUTIFUL race!
Baltimore also held it's first Light City which was a lights festival with light art installations, performances, and events.
