Goal Accomplished: RUN. A. MARATHON.

November 4, 2018. I ran the New York City Marathon. WHAT!? I RAN A FREAKIN’ MARATHON!? This was, by far, the biggest surprise of 2018 for me. Maybe one of the biggest shocks of my life!

Goal Accomplished: Hike to Machu Picchu

I have to say, this is probably one of my favorite accomplished goals so far. It was equal parts challenging and exhilarating. It was both social and incredibly personal.
