Best of List: Top Moments of 2016

Finishing up my “Best of List” with my personal top moments of 2016. Quite a few of these will include running and Disney because I love both of those things.

This list is in order chronologically, not by importance.

  1. Running the “Dopey Challenge”  in January. (Dopey Challenge is a 5K on Thursday, 10K on Friday, Half Marathon on Saturday and Full Marathon on Sunday for a total of 48.6 miles.)
  2. Visiting Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in early March with our friend Janell.
  3. Running the inaugural Dark Side Half Marathon at the Walt Disney World Resort in late April and staying at the Wilderness Lodge.
  4. Becoming a BibRave Pro in early May, which allowed me to test different running products and meet some great people!
  5. Going back to Walt Disney World for the 3rd straight month to celebrate Rachel’s birthday and staying at Port Orleans: Riverside.
  6. Spending Memorial Day weekend in Tennessee with Rachel’s family at Standing Rock Creek for their family reunion.
  7. Going to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina in June for a couple of days with Rachel’s family.
  8. Running the Peachtree Road Race (the world’s largest 10K) with Rachel on the 4th of July.
  9. Spending a week over Labor Day at the Disneyland resort while running the Disneyland Half Marathon. This was our 3rd straight “coast to coast” year (running at least a half marathon in Florida and California in the same calendar year).
  10. My job changed at the church I’ve been working at for the past 2 years. I am now the Director of Activities and Students at St. James UMC in Atlanta.
  11. Renewing our season passes at WDW in late September for another magical year.
  12. Running in the Chicago Marathon in October.
  13. Running in the Atlanta 10 Miler (October) and Thanksgiving Half (November) to complete the Triple Peach (which includes the Peachtree Road Race in July).
  14. Celebrating my birthday weekend at Walt Disney World with great friends. This time we stayed at Port Orleans: French Quarter.
  15. Spending last weekend in Alabama with my family celebrating Christmas a week early. This included a few other surprises that I won’t mention here!
