2016 recap

As 2016 comes to an end, I can’t help but reminisce about all the ups and downs of 2016. I started this blog and allowed myself to be vulnerable. I lost some loved ones, had a mini panic attack along with the majority of the country, but I also grew a lot as a human and definitely pushed myself to the limit. Ran 1 full marathon, 2 half marathons, and total of  557.8 miles this year. I advanced my work career twice this year, and I’m not stopping until I reach the top! Here are some highlights of my 2016. *Warning* Lots of photos!
