2011 in Review

Ya know, I am pretty happy with 2011. I accomplished way more then I thought was possible. At this point I am thankful I quit working for Weight Watchers as I am sure I would have kept going as I was and not challenged myself to do bigger and better things.

Ran Cinco de Mayo with my daughter - my first 10K that I ran the whole thing.
Followed by a burrito and beer.....
I took a Learn to Run class and met others who wanted the same thing as me. We ran a 5K together.

Hiked Tam-a-Lau trail.
Ran the Widmer Brothers 10K with my son- no walking on this one either.
Hiked Smith Rock for the first time.
Even though it is right at my back door.
Ran The Todd Beamer 10K for 4th of July with my son. He helped me reach a goal of under 1 hour 10 minutes.

Hiked Lava Butte.
Had an adventure in the top of trees. This is when I realized I needed to work on my upper body strength.
I finished my first ever half marathon and ran the whole thing!! I'm not breaking any records with my time but I was thrilled!!
Climbed a really big rock- thankfully I was harnessed in!
I finished the year out by running the Jingle Bell Run 5K in Portland.
 Here are my two biggest supporters!!

I look forward to many adventures in 2012.


  1. That is quite a year when you look at it all lined up! And think of the inspiration you have given out! I know I would not have considered running a half without watching you train.
    You will need to buy a new running shirt in PURPLE!

  2. Great review Lori! You have accomplished so much. Let's have a kick ass 2012!

    Happy New Year to you and yours!

  3. That is a fantastic year. I am happy to end the year with a total weight loss of 84#.
    My goal in 2012 is to be more active. Due to lots of arthritis a lot of exercise is really painful, I plan to try and modify some things so I can get moving more.

  4. Congratulations, Lori, great accomplishments!!!

  5. Sounds like a great year! You go girl!

  6. Wow! I am impressed! Happy New Year!

  7. Awesome accomplishments, all!You're an inspiration :)

  8. Lori,
    The look back at your year of accomplishments is so motivating! Thank you! You are a true athlete and I look forward to following you another year. Cant wait to see what you do next with such great supporters as your children. Great Photos!

  9. Oh so impressive! Congratulations and Happy New Year!
