Awesome job with the goals both of you! You must be in the 10% or so who don't give up on goal February 1st:)

It's nice to see all of those "completed" after the goals!! Awesome work, you both did so well! I know you'll get a PR this year, B, it's going to be your magical year...marriage and all that. Wouldn't it be cool if you PR'd in San Diego?!
B, if you can get me a copy of the Boston training for injury recovery(or what ever that was called), I'd appreciate it. I already have a schedule but it would be nice to compare the mileage!
Happy New Year to you both!

Nice follow-up to the 2010 goals. I'm hoping to drop a few lbs before the Snickers marathon in March. Urgh!

Ok Miss Bethany, no more letting Ryan beat your goals next year :). JK! You guys both did great! 2011 will be a great year for you both...wedding, running, and all!! Happy New Year!

Emily said...

You two were marathon machines this year AND an ultra...crazy. Super excited to see you (at least) twice in 2011!

You both did great striving for those goals. Isn't that the point to keep working towards improvement?! I think that is even more important than attain a specific goal, just keep improving everyday and don't let the tiny set backs be road blocks...there are just technical elements on your trail through life!

Jenn said...

Nice work on the goals guys! So fun that you do so much together! You guys will be the perfect married couple!!!

Hope you have a great New Year! Perhaps you will run your first married Boston together in 2012 and I can see you there!!! I won't get ahead of myself here! Just enjoy 2011 right!

Have a great New Year!

Hey guys. Congrats on 2010 and good luck on the new year.

Are you guys doing Disney again? I will be headed down there for the full, not doing Goofy this year. Maybe I will see you guys in the coral in the morning.

I was the girl who said hi to Ryan at the end of Baystate. I actually recognized you before the race and knew you were going out for a 3:55 so I used you to pace myself at the start.

Lee said...

Sounds like you both did pretty well!

Aron said...

you guys did great on your goals and 2011 is going to be SO EXCITING!!!!!

Bethany + Ryan said...

@Robin, thanks for solving the mystery of who said hi to Ryan, lol. we were wondering! We will both be doing Goofy again this year. we will look for you. Good luck!!
