So much happens in the course of a year. I love to throw together a list of some of the major events that occurred so I can look back and remember them. It feels like a REALLY long time ago that I ran in the Charleston Half Marathon and it was still less than a year ago. Of course, we did lots of other stuff in 2013, but here are some of the highlights.....
