My twelve notable things from 2012

Today many are looking back at 2012 and reflecting on what the year has brought. I had a great year and now I’m looking forward to what’s in store for lucky number 2013. I’m not a fan of resolutions, but I have set some personal goals for 2013. I also decided to make a list of 12 notable things that happened in 2012. Turns out, 12 things is a lot. So forewarning, the list gets more ridiculous as it progresses.

1. Helped encourage Chicagoland women to be a part of the inaugural Chicago Women’s Half Marathon & 5K by being one of the faces of the race.

2. Completed my third half marathon after developing a running injury.

3. Learned to swim, the proper way.
4. Completed my first triathlon.

5. Celebrated 5 years living in Chicago and working with my company.
6. Got a promotion at work.
7. Learned to sew. This is something I have always wanted to do and now I can’t stop.

8. Celebrated the 1st year anniversary of Black Girls RUN! Chicago running group, and attended the inaugural Black Girls RUN! race in Atlanta.

9. Invested in a DSLR camera to capture all the even better things to come in 2013!

10. Stepped into the modern age and upgraded my flip phone to a smartphone. Thank you Google Maps App, I will never be lost in the city again.
11. Got out of 4 pricey parking tickets through the fine art of letter writing.
12. Avoided buzz cutting my hair with the help of box braids.

Ok, the last few are really a stretch. But the list wouldn’t make much sense with 8 things, now would it? Make a list of your 12 notable things from 2012 to reflect on all that the year has brought you! Have a happy and safe new year!
