The Cara Ellison Year In Review

2011 was marginally better than 2010. It was an average year with average accomplishments. I expect 2012 to be better by an order of magnitude. This is my year-end review for myself.

Total miles run: 446.654
Total number of run workouts: 170
Fastest 5K: 17:09
I ran 3 times per week on average.
My average pace was 10:44 per mile. (Yuck).

I attended a pilates class 122 times in 2011.
I attended 2 times per week on average.
Lori is my favorite instructor and I took her class 86 times.
One thing I can do now that I could not do last year: 50 perfect pushups.

Number of books read: 101
Most surprising thing about the books I read: I read 7 memoirs and I gave 5 stars to 5 of them on Goodreads. I had no idea I liked memoirs that much.
Goal for number of books to read in 2012: 150
New Skill: reacquainted myself with French


Visits to museums: 12
Visits to art galleries: 4
Pieces of art bought: 1
Pieces of art created: 7
Number of books written: 3
Number of books published: 1
Number of places traveled: 4
Best thing seen while traveling: my friend Nicki and her ginger-haired boy, Daniel.

  5. That is really really quick – esp. for an older woman

  6. honest – I put a “smiley” thing after that “older woman” crack, but it didn’t show up. Yes I was joking…
