Let’s see, I got a new job, ran a few small races (wink, wink), started this little (ahem) blog, made tons of news friends, had some dating drama, saw my sister get engaged, and I am sure there is more stuff that I am forgetting. But WOW, what a year!
Speaking of races, my mom got me the BEST Christmas present which is pretty much like a “B.o.B. – this is your running life!” shadow box. She had it custom made and it has room for more medals. In addition, it says “The Best of Beth” at the top and on the bottom is says “Love You, Mom.”
While I definitely think there were more highs than lows in 2009, I am looking forward to 2010 and guess what? I turn the big 3-0 in 2010. And I am not ashamed to admit it and actually look forward to being a bit wiser, I am hoping I wake up on that fateful morning and know the answer to the meaning of life. But, then again, I won’t hold my breath on that.
So with all of that said, today, I am thankful for A NEW YEAR! What are you thankful for today?
Happy New Year!
You've had a big year. I turned 30 in July and loads of widsom descended on me. 🙂 Happy New Year!
I love the box o' medals! Fabulous!! What am I thankful for? Husband's direct deposit, hahahahaha
I'm turning 30 next month and am freaking out! I am too young to be 30 😉
That box is sooo cool! I am thankful for a New Year, too! Can't wait to see what 2010 holds for all of us! Happy New Year!
Because you are the best!
I am thankful that one of those medals was earned with some great friends. And has everlasting memories to go along with it. Hope you can remove it from the box when you need to open a beer.
Love Love the shadow box!! I actually put my medals up yesterday too. I will post on that in a bit. Happy New Year! Here's to 2010!!
that is a super great present! i've been trying to figure out what to do with my race bibs!
I'm thankful for my legs that move when I tell them too even though they might be tired! Great box! I need to do something like that!
30 is fabulous! Have a very happy New Year.
I LOVE the shadow box! I just hang my medals on a door knob on my closet…they would look much nicer displayed like that! My waistline is thankful that all of the holiday cookies in my house are almost gone.
What a great gift! I'm thankful for new years and setting and reaching goals! Happy New Year!
I am thankful for still being 39…at least for a few more days! The thirties are great, be sure to enjoy them! Happy New Year!!!

That shadow box is a very cool thing!!! I love that starfish medal, what race is that from?
I, too, am thankful for 2010!! A very Happy New Year to you – I look forward to reading where your journey takes you!
Now *that* is a very cool present! I'm looking forward to you filling it up this year!
This was your first year blogging? Then I am soooo happy tht you did. You have given me so many ideas that have made every one of my steps easier the past few months. Thanks for taking the time!
Here's wishing you and yours a happy, safe and prosperous New Year!
That shadow box is the best! What a thoughtful and pwerfect gift!
Hapyp New Year!
Shouldn't it say "the best of B.o.B.?!" – you are going to need more space I am afraid!
I am thankful for all of my running, biking, and swimming (less of them) friends, and I am thankful for all of our deployed members of the military that are keeping us safe!
that is a freakin nice box! i love it 🙂 way to go mom. happy 2010 to you!
Very cool gift! I've yet to make a shadow box for my half marathon! I need to get it together!
Is it just me or is that Holiday Halfathon medal look goofy? When I first saw them and got mine I thought it was a Christmas ornament so I later hung it on my Christmas tree! Best of luck to you and Twenty Ten! And Happy 3-0… in my experience the 30s have been way better so far than the 20s! Oh and I'm thankful for Vanilla Bean Gu. That stuff rocks!
OMG I absolutely LOVE that frame! I love that it says "Best of Beth" I love your Mom!!!!
What a super sweet gift! I hope you are having a fabulous start to your new year lady!
