Summing Up 2010

I was recently reading Ali's blog  and saw that she had this post about the year 2010 in review.  I thought her list of questions was great and figured I'd answer them in a blog post to sum up my year.  Here's my answers to her list of questions.

1.  Your 2010 in three words:  
  • Clyde
  • Running!
  • Hope (because Greg's career is finally making a comeback)
 2.  Your top 10 best moments/nights/events/etc. of 2010:  
3.  The best purchase you made in 2010?

4.  The music that defined your year?
I'll go with some of the stuff on my running playlist, since I listened to it so much this year with all my running.  Here's some of my favorites:
  • Just Say Yes- Snow Patrol
  • Lovers In Japan- Coldplay
  • Forever- Chris Brown
  • Teenage Dream- Katy Perry (and the Glee version)
  • All I Have- Mat Kearney
  • Young and In Love- The London
  • Crossfire- Brandon Flowers
  • Get it Right- Brendan James
  • 1901- Phoenix
  • Thunderstruck- AC/DC
  • Learning to Fly- Tom Petty
  • Crash and Burn- Lifehouse
5.  Your best kiss of 2010:
The first kiss I had with my hubby after he got home from being gone at training for about 5-6 weeks in the spring.

6.  The night you felt the best/prettiest all year:  ??  Kelly's wedding maybe??  I really liked my hair.

7.  The best meal you ate in 2010:  I can't pick just one... A bunch were:  Carpe Diem, Custom Shop, Fiamma, Dolce.

8.  The people you missed the most in 2010:  My friend Jen that I grew up with in NH.  I saw her twice in 2009, but it did not work out for us to get together in 2010 :(  She has a baby I haven't met yet too!

9.  The best movie you saw all year:  Probably Avatar?  I think I saw it in the beginning of 2010 and it was fun seeing it in 3D on the big screen.

10.  The person you got to know the most in 2010:  Jen and my friend Michelle.  I credit both with turning me into the running nut I've become.

11.  The person you grew apart from the most in 2010:  Probably my friend Gibson.  We're still good friends, but we spend less time together these days than we did the year before.  Our lives are just busier now.

12.  The biggest risk you took in 2010: Signing up to run a full marathon.

13.  The biggest change you made in 2010:  Doing all this running and all these races!  Seriously, the longest single run I did in 2009 was about 4 miles.  Now I'm up to 20!  Who am I??!!

14.  Your biggest accomplishment in 2010:  My three half marathons and also all my runs longer than 13 miles made me feel really accomplished too.  Also, just getting out of the funk (read back to the beginning of my blog in 2009 to see what I'm talking about) I had been in most of 2009 and getting motivated and inspired to take charge of my own happiness.

15.  What you’re hoping for in 2011:
  • A strong marathon finish in January.
  • To get pregnant.
  • For Greg's job with the airlines to be stable and continue on an upward trend.
  • To be happy!!!  (I wish for that every year)
  • To visit family and friends I didn't get to see enough in 2010.  I'm due to visit people in NH, NJ, DC/VA, and IN.
  • Do more yoga.
    How was your year?  What are your hopes for next year?

Ahh I LOVE this! And I'm super glad the Daughtry experience made your list :) You had such an awesome year!

I don't make resolutions b/c I always fail at them. Instead I look back over the past year and make a list of all my achievements. Then I feel like the opposite of a failure!

Great list! This was super fun to read. Happy to provide the questions! Also, where in NH did you grow up? You mentioned going to lots of UNH games... I'm from outside Concord!

It looks like you had an amazing year.
I really want to try Carpe Diem. Its been on my list for awhile.

I hope that 2'11 is just as amazing for you!

My year has had its ups and downs, but it's definitely ending on an up! :)
I need to sit down and write down my 2011 goals!

Tanya Kummerow said...

Great year-end summary! I am so excited for you and the marathon! It has been really neat to read about your journey! Thanks for sharing!

Stephanie @ The Cookie Battle said...

How funny that you grew up in NH, so did I! Small world.

My hope for next year is to continue on the path I'm on. Now that I have my dream job and a wonderful boyfriend, all that's missing is our Clyde :)

Ashley and Nate said...

It looks like you've come a long way with running this past year. Congrats on all of your running accomplishments! My hope for next year is to get out of my rut, and I hope to find a new career path... cause architecture is not for me. Here's to hope for next year! :)

Congratulations on an amazing year! For sure, this was the year of running for me, too. Here's to a great 2011!

You've had a great year, Britt! I miss you too! I hope we can get together in 2011. Looks like my big trip may be to Minnesota for my cousin Scott's wedding in August, but we'll see. Good luck with the marathon! Oh, and I think you're going to get pregnant this year--I have a feeling! -Jen T.

I love that Clyde was the best purchase, how could he not be?? :)

Here's to a great 2011!

This is a great list Britney. I've been toiling over what my goals for the year are and I think I have to steal one of yours. Definitely visit more people I don't see enough. Happy New Year! :)

I hope I make the list of people to visit :) I'm sure I'll make my way down there soon too...I've had a good year, hoping to have more balance in 2011. That's one of my goals :) Alison
