I feel like 2011 was my first year of serious running. I started out the year training for my first half marathon, dealt with some injuries, was practically pathetic about running over the summer, jumped back in after the Bar, and ended the year training for my first marathon!
I set three new PBs in the 5k and PB'ed by 11 minutes in my second half marathon. And, frankly, I'm awfully proud of myself.
It was also a big year, personally. I graduated from law school, studied for & passed the New York bar exam, moved to Seattle and started my first grown-up job!
