where did the year go?!

Standard

First off, I can’t believe I haven’t blogged in over a month, but the time seemed to fly by so quickly. Now, we are a few days into 2015, and I am still wondering where 2014 went. In an effort to highlight this great year and catch you up to speed on what is going on with our fam, here’s our 2014 review.

This crazy wonderful guy took a chance on a divorced mom of four and made me the happiest I have ever been. Thank you, and I love you. And the kids are pretty fond of him, too.

The Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon was a great experience for us, and training for this race was what brought us together in the first place. I was invited to be an Official Blogger for the race for the second year. Dan ran his first full marathon, and I completed my fifth, in addition to setting a nearly 15-minute PR!

All of the kids were FINALLY in the same school district when school began in August, and I was the proud mom of a fourth grader, second grader, and two all-day kindergartners!

My twins ran their first 5K this summer and crushed it! Lexi completed her third. As for Annie, she didn’t want to run, and I respect that. Girl knows what she likes and doesn’t like.

Someone got his first hair cut in three years and donated it to make wigs for kids fighting cancer and other illnesses. Long or short, cute both ways 🙂

Dan and I ran the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon, and because of my family and friends’ generosity, I was able to raise over $700 for the hospital as a Children’s Champion.

The health department I work for submitted its accreditation application to the Public Health Accreditation Board. I have worked for the health department since graduating college in 2003, and this is my most significant project to date.

I helped my friend Shea run her first half marathon, and we completed the Santa Hustle at Cedar Point. Great job, girl! Now, when’s your next half? 🙂

We went from a house of five to a house of six. I like even numbers better anyway.
