I pretty much have to do one of these, right?
I rode into 2013 on a party bus with my awesome boyfriend and many good friends.
I ran the Disney Marathon and got to meet my favorite American lady marathoner, Desi Davila.
And I paid off my student loans! (Seriously. This was very exciting.)
I did a bar crawl through New York City dressed like this.
I went to Vegas and ran another marathon.
We threw the best St. Douglas Day party yet.
And ‘Cuse went to the Final Four!
I caught whooping cough…
…but I still went on a cool Memorial Day trip to the mountains of Virginia.
And Paul won a James Beard Award!
I vacationed in Cape May with Paul.
I celebrated Christine’s bachelorette party.
And I started a new job!
I went to Syracuse to see two good friends get married.
Beach vacation #2: Half in Delaware, half in New Jersey
And we threw an amazing Sleep No More-themed going-away party for Katie.
I broke my all-time clam-eating record. 62!
I went to Cape May again with my mom.
Paul and I ate at the ridiculously extravagant Per Se.
I ran another marathon. Yep, another one.
Paul and I went to upstate New York for a good college friend’s wedding.
The third annual PA Fest was a great success!
I went to NYC to cheer for the marathoners.
Paul and I went to Atlantic City for a too-much-food-and-drink event ending with clubbing with Jermaine Dupri.
And…I ran another marathon. Mostly with Paul, this time.
And my mom came to celebrate Thanksgiving with me, Paul, and Paul’s family.
We ate a lot of grass-fed beef thanks to a story Paul’s working on.
+ Lots of snow, a Christmas trip to Philly (for Paul), a Christmas trip to Jim Thorpe (for me), a Christmas-day trip to Niagara Falls (near where Paul and I Christmased with my family), and seeing real Sleep No More
Note: Too lazy to post any more photos.
Overall, a good year. Here’s hoping 2014 will be peaceful, successful, and fun.
