2010 was a great year, filled with accomplishments, trips, additions, and much more! Sit back & enjoy my year in review!
January I started back on track…for the millionth time! ;) In my mind that is a great accomplishment in itself, making the commitment to get back on track!
February was a great OP month! And we have squeezed in a trip to see Kyle’s sister & her hubby in the windy city, Chicago!
March marked the 7th year in a row I made the trip to Florida to see my Grampo (pronounced Gram-poo) and sister, Wendi, over spring break. Click here to see Day 1 and if you want to see more Florida posts, just click “newer post” at the bottom of the page.
April was my first race of the year! It was a 5K in a small local town. I finished in 28:38, not a PR, but still a great time!
May marked a big change in the Bangert house, Kyle left his job. It took lots of careful thought & consideration over a very long period of time, but we decided you cannot put a price on time off. No amount of money is worth what he was doing. And he started back to school full time. Click here to read more.
June started out with a work trip to Austin, TX! I think we did more recreation that work things though, ssshhh! ;)
I squeezed in a few runs exploring downtown!
In June I also ran my first 20K, the Dam to Dam in Des Moines. The big side note on this though is that I was completely un prepared! But I pushed through and finished the 12.4 miles, couldn’t have done it without Kyle!
In July Kyle had multiple interviews and accepted a job at the community college in the town where we live, which also happens to be where I work! ;) Of course we had to go out to celebrate!
One good thing about August is I marked another year in the books, yep I’m now 26! We celebrated a day early because…
I had to work on my birthday, but my staff did well with making the day extra special!
September was an extra special month, my nephew finally arrived!! Hayden James, born 9.12.10!
I sure do love this little guy. He spent the first week of his life in the NICU, but is now a healthy growing boy!
October started out with our final race of the year, the Applefest 5K. It was our first race in our hometown! Little did I know…
I was pregnant at the time! We didn’t find out till 10.16.10, a day Kyle & I will forever remember! Click here to read all about that day!
November was a fun month! November 4th marked 2 years that I have been on this journey! It was fun to look back to see what I have accomplished over that time! Click here to read my blogiversary post.
We also enjoyed sharing our “news'’ with our immediate family over a few weekends!
In December we got to see our little one for the first time! Not to mention also hearing that heartbeat! Priceless! Click here to read more!
And of course we can’t forget Christmas!
I know that 2011 has lots to offer, can’t wait! :) See ya next year!
