This is my first full year of running (how cool is that?!) and I'm hooked. I completed several 5 ks - both fun runs and timed runs - and my very first 10 k at the Calgary Marathon. Most recently J and I did the Santa Shuffle, which was a super fun 5k run, complete with santa hats and reindeer antlers.
I've continued on my journey to get healthy and running has definitely helped with that: I'm losing weight, I'm being active, I'm eating better and I'm using running as a coping strategy for stress. I don't track distances or times so I don't have any impressive stats but to me the benefits I'm seeing are much more important than any numbers.

This year my goal is simple: keep running. No times, no distance, no specific races, no pressure. I don't want to make too many plans because I fear that will take away the pleasure and relaxation I get from running so the only plan I'm making is to continue doing what I'm currently doing as long as I enjoy it.
