This is a simple review for time sake!
As I was preparing to write this I realized I have NO idea where I put my BOSTON 2013 medal. The last time I remember seeing it the ladies at my sons school wanted to see it. I brought it all wrapped up like fine china inside my Boston Expo bag with my bib. I am so sick that I can not find it.  I am praying that it comes up. I tried so hard to take care if it only to have LOST it!

3 Greatest Accomplishments:
Boston Marathon
First 50 Mile Race
Ing NYC Marathon

 Well. Here is the basic easy recap! We are heading out. Not a lot of time to blog. I had a lot more but not a lot of time.
The New Year is tomorrow..Hoping 2014 brings my Boston Medal back to me!



  1. I'll ask Saint Anthony for help finding your medal. He's always shown where to find things I misplaced.

    1. Thank you Michelle. I am totally bummed. I am trying to let it go and not beat myself up anymore over it. I just get so mad at myself even when I try really hard I still mess up!

  2. Happy New Year Anita! I hope that 2014 is an amazing year for you! You are my hero when it comes to running! Your recap is awesome, congrats for such a wonderful 2013! I am thrilled that in 2012 when I first started running at the ripe old age of 40 I ran 292 miles and in 2013 I ran 778! My goal for 2014 is to just keep running! I hope you find your medal! Have a great week! Carri~A Running bee

    1. HAPPY NEW YEAR CARRI, You had an incredible year running also. The more you ran the more you RAN! I love that you started running at 40. That is so awesome to look life on with new horizons conquering great things!
