The Best Days Are Birthdays!

Hi everyone!  Guess what day it is?  MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

fittycentMy supervisor may have had that song on repeat yesterday for me…

I am currently either sleeping, recovering from last night, or eating cake.  Yesterday however, I decided to go for a 2.7 mile run (for 27 years, get it?) to commemorate my new age!  It was a nice start to my birthday festivities, and gave me a bit of time to reflect on the last year.  I’ve accomplished so much since turning 26 and I can’t wait to see what 27 will bring!  When I was 26 I:

  • Ran my first half marathon!!!!!!
  • Moved to Alaska!
  • Drove 4,300 miles across 2 countries
  • Snuck into Acadia National Park during the government shutdown
  • Went dogsledding on a glacier (more on that soon!)
  • Ran my first and only mud run
  • Learned to kayak
  • Hiked Cadillac Mountain and Mt. Marathon, two amazingly epic hikes I never thought I’d do
  • Ran my fastest 5k ever
  • Bought my first car using my own credit (word to all the independent ladies with good credit out there!)
  • Learned how to run in the snow
  • And finally, started this blog and met all of you fabulous people!

I know that year #27 is going to be even better, and I can’t wait to share it with all of you!  Love you all!

What’s your favorite type of birthday cake?  What is your biggest accomplishment in the last year?
