The Topic for today is: Your Year in Photos
Definitely this year has been different. But I still did take lots of photos and there were many positives to this year.
Here are my 2020 Highlights:
A fun New Year’s Day local race, a blogger meet-up in NYC and my first half marathon of the year
A sad local race (dedicated to a friend who died), a vacation in Bermuda/my 2nd half marathon of the year, and a weekend trip to the Van Gogh exhibit in Montreal.
I started working from home and all my races started getting cancelled so I visited the local preserves, ran a virtual half marathon, and went for a walk several times each day.
More of the same…. another virtual half marathon, lots of running, walking and hiking solo.
My birthday (and it snowed) but I started safely seeing my friends and running/brunching with them. I also completed another virtual half marathon.
No real races but running long with friends on the weekends in addition to boating on Lake George. Our running group also started weekday after work walks on the local trails.
Exactly the same as June but with warmer and more humid temps. I added Friday after work walks with two former co-workers and more difficult hikes.
Same as July.
Two more of my half marathons went virtual but I chose not to run them. I continued running, hiking, walking and boating as in the previous months.
Finally a race-cation except that the race was cancelled. My friends and I went, ran it anyway and had a great time. Boating ended but walks and hikes allowed me to enjoy the amazing fall foliage (best ever). I also completed another virtual half marathon.
Colder temps and less daylight made it difficult to connect with friends to run and hike. I did my best. And I actually ran an in-person race.
Even colder weather but I managed to keep running, visit NYC and run an in-person 5k there.
2020 is almost over but unfortunately not the pandemic (as I had hoped back in March). The good news is that four of my immediate family members, who came down with COVID in November, all recovered. (Thank you for your prayers and virtual hugs.)
Here’s hoping that 2021 is a year with many more happy memories (and photo ops.)
