      Thank you Debbie! I was humbled when I looked back on the year and I excited about next year. Excited for you too!

    LOVE this! You had a truly incredible year and I am beyond proud of you, and I feel so honored to be even a small part of your circle. I feel like you make me better by association! My list? My first marathon, my first century, an amazing new job, speaking at 2 conferences, and an awesome anniversary trip to New Orleans. I guess it’s been a pretty fantastic year around these parts too. :)

    Work. Definitely nailed work. I didn’t nail a permanent position, but I’m more sure of my abilities than ever.

    Oh yes, you totally, absolutely nailed it, Christine!!

    My Nailed It moments? Published on The Huffington Post and Mamalode. Scored a corporate client for Little Love Media. And 2014 is looking exciting too!

    You sooooo nailed it this year! Those are some very big accomplishments for one year. Congrats on being brave, bold and stepping out of your comfort zone. I think 2014 is going to be full of oodles of Nailed It for you! Yay!

    I love your #5 because it’s not about completing a task but about making a decision and a commitment to a decision. It’s this living goal full of energy that you will work toward and where there is no “here” and “there” but something that will evolve. I am so proud of you for making this leap and I can’t wait to see where 2014 will take you! xo

      Thank you. The fact that there is no here or there – and frankly the uncertainty of it all – freaks the hell out of me and it brings up a lot of self-doubt. But keep putting one foot in front of the other, right? I am so proud of YOU too my friend. Happy Happy New Year!

    December 30, 2013

    That sounds like an incredible year! I don’t technically have any type of list for this year, but one thing I can think of off the top of my head is that I finished every single race I registered for this year. I may have been injured in some and had to mix in some walking, but I’ve run or walked across the finish line of all 15 races I signed up for.

    I LOVE your list and the idea of ‘nailed it’ for 2013. I may need to write one of these too. I think you chose 5 perfect things for you this year, I most loved your Hawaii trip from afar (even if insanely jealous hehe), and that you became a yoga instructor!! SO proud of you :)

    I still feel like a fraud when I say I’m a photographer! I know experience will help that go away, at least most of the time. Nailed its? Building this house and this family in ways I didn’t think possible. I’d have to narrow it down from there, but it was a good year. And this was the year I started blogging in a community and boy, did that make my year!

    Wow! What an exciting year you have had! Those are some very impressive accomplishments, for a variety of different reasons. I tend to focus too much on my running life and training to be “healthy” but struggle with the disconnecting and relaxing….so in some ways I am most impressed with the month disconnected (and jealous you went to Hawaii).

    I also love that you did the broad street run! I have always wanted to do it as I live in Philly, but the team I coach always has their conference championship that weekend! Congratulations :)

      The month in Hawaii was great but I do admit that it was a lot harder to disconnect than I expected. It took me a while but I’m glad that I did. It’s definitely something that I continue to work on. Broad Street Run was so fun and I hope you get to run it one day!

    You’ve had a great year. Becoming certified and having your writing recognized are big accomplishments.

    I’d have to say my “Nailed it” for 2013 was my running. I acheived 8 PRs including a marathon PR by 13 minutes. I was also awarded an invitational 2014 Boston Marathon number by my club’s board of directors.
    Personally and professionally 2013 wasn’t great, I won’t go into details here.
    I did take a few steps in 2013 to change careers and will be working even harder on that in 2014.
    Hppy New Year! Cheers.

    I like the unique way you put together the list. Your becoming a yoga teacher is SO inspiring. In the past I’ve considered becoming a workout instructor or personal trainer. I think about it and then think….Oh I’m not cut out for that. It terrifies me to think of teaching an entire workout class! But I’ve been thinking more and more about get my personal training license just to have options. Hmmm. .

      Thank you Ericka! I went into teacher training thinking that I *might* want to teach but not entirely convinced. I thought it was a good thing to do and would be helpful if I wanted to do more writing. But I learned through the process that I really really loved teaching. I mean, we’ll see if that still holds true once I start teaching more regularly :-) I think that you’d make a great trainer or instructor!

    What a wonderful year! Whenever I looked at you in Yoga poses before I always thought you were a Yoga teacher and was surprised that you weren’t. So to me, you’ve always been a teacher. Yoga or life. :)

    A nice long break from the internet is always good. :)

    Christine, you’ve had a pretty spectacular year. I cannot even imagine a month’s vacation ANYwhere, but it’s definitely something I want to do at some point. In fact, my husband and I have a dream of spending an extended time in England at some point.

    I had a career transition this year too and I understand those feelings of fear and self-doubt. I like what you say about just sitting with them. I’m not good at just sitting with anything, but I’m really really trying.

    Congratulations all your “nailed its” and here’s to even more of those in 2014!

      Thank you so much Shana and especially for all your incredible words and gestures of support. It truly means the world to me. Career transitions are rough and man, I have no clue and it’s a little frightening. I’m trying not to question so much and to trust my gut more and to think about one step at a time. But it is hard. I’m excited about 2014. I hope that you have a chance to spend extended time in England and I hope that we both gain a foothold in our transitions.
