Bestest Parts of 2010

Get ready for picture overload.


Living in Cali for the Summer with Bil Bil.  No work and no school (I am a teacher and Billy is a student at BYU).  It was amazing and we will be doing the same thing this summer.  Beach, run, sleep, eat, run, eat continue.

Weird dancing photo at Olvera Street in LA.  Best taquitos you will ever eat. Ever.

Getting and working on Billy's dream car:)



One year anniversary. This boy deserves a medal for dealing with my craziness this long.

My first marathon.


My second marathon.

Utah Valley Marathon 27.jpg

My third marathon.


Many Vegas trips.


The best salad I have ever eaten at La Sirena Grill in Dana Point, Cali. Seriously, I died and went to heaven.

Lots of fun times with the nieces and nephews.

Hiking, biking, feeding fishies and enjoying the outdoors.

Billy's softball games.  Don't worry they took first place in the tournament.  I get really into these games.  Like, I think I embarrass Billy a little with all of my cheering.


And time for some cheesiness....starting this blog and meeting all of my new friends.  You guys have become a huge part of my life and I can't wait to share 2011 with you!!!

What were your bestest parts of 2010?

You and Billy are so cute I love it.

Hmmm best parts of 2010, new job, new apartment, some awesome hikes, and getting in to distance running. Its been a pretty phenomenal year.

Happy 2011!

What's the name of the cafe in Dana Point? I'm from socal and am always looking for new great places to eat- and that salad looks awesome.

I have to say getting ENGAGED! eeee!!

My best parts of 2010 were also running my first marathon (not my second and third though!) and celebrating our first wedding anniversary!!

i know...i've been MIA...but i'm working on catching up :)

seriously, *knowing* such a hard-core running superstar like you has TOTALLY made my year a zillion times better! i can't tell you how many times a week i speak of your running awesomeness.

i'm totally jealous that you and your husband get another summer off together. mr. dawn is graduating which means that he has to go back to working full time starting in may...booo!!!

Love all your pictures and your year recap! It's been a really great year for you! My husband would be drooling over that car!

You've had one amazing year Missy!!

The bestest part of 2010 for me was working at the Olympics AND getting to watch all sorts of people win GOLD MEDALS!! It was so amazing and ridiculously inspiring to watch people get what they worked SO HARD for!

Happy New Year!

Your anniversary photo is amazing! So much love between you too, and it just shines out of that picture.

October 9th, 2010 was the best day ever for me--the day I married my best friend. Jason puts up with my SIX bookcases that are stuffed full, and doesn't even complain when I inevitably bring home yet one more book. And never says a word when I "sneak" another bag home from the craft stores.

Another great 2010 moment was when our little Lucy came home. She only weighed 1.2 lbs! I giggle everyday when I see my hubby all dressed in his uniform and looking so tough-guy, then taking time to snuggle-hug a chihuahua before leaving for work. teeheehee

Making the decision to start running, and then completing my first pathetic little walk/jog/shuffle. LOL.

And of course, making new friends on blogger. Bloggies are the best! Its funny that even my technicians at work know better than to bother me in the mornings when they see me eating my yogurt/fruit/cereal combo at my desk and reading everyone's updates. Its become my morning routine!

Yay for 2010! It looks like you had a great year my dear!

I didn't hear about the car or the living in CA - that will be fun to hear about in 2011!

Best parts for me: buying a house, running 4 marathons, getting new PRs in the marathon and half marathon, celebrating 2 years with my best friend, learning more about who God made me to be (and who I don't have to try to be), actually starting to LIKE my job!

Finding your blog!!! HA =)
Also, starting to run...good golly, I LOVE running. Nothing really paramount happened this year, didnt have any babies, didnt buy a new car, didnt win the lottery, etc....probably just the fact that God has blessed me with another year to mother my little sweeties =)

Awesome year review!! :) I love that you did your first, second and third marathons this year - that's amazing! And you and Billy are truly the cutest ever. I also love your California summer set-up, I'm a little envious.
I did a year end review too and managed to narrow it down to my top 10...and my first tri topped the list, but it was a close call. 2010 has definitely been my best year yet!
Happy New Year!! :)

Happy New Year! And I plan on cheering you on at Boston this year... I live near 'heartbreak hill' and... I'm not a stalker or anything but we have an extra bedroom + bath so if you need a place to stay so you can save money for fro-yo and gummies, you can count on ME!

Way off the subject, but how long did you go without running and were you able to just get right back to it or did you have to ease into things? I have only been running since July but I think i should take a week or so off due to some shin and ankle pain I have (from running in 7yr old shoes for the past few weeks)....thoughts?

I am sooooooooooooooo glad that I found your blog and can't wait to see what you do into 2011! and three marathons this year just after having tried your first! damned you're a star!!! i wish i had your marathon legs!

Summer in Cali? Jealous! How long have you been blogging for?

...and I just read your last post and can't believe you ran after you ate! Stomach of steel! I wouldn't be able to even move ;)

Happy New Year!! I've been more of a stalker than a commenter lately :) I just want you to know I'm still here, and loving your blog! You guys look like you're having the time of your lives. Can I swap inlaws with ya? I want some that live in Cali!!!

You are just so great about taking pictures and documenting your life with photos! I wish I had done that when I was your age! Shoot, I wish I did a better job of it now that I even know I should! lol

What an awesome year you had!

One of my bests would have to be getting my hip healthy enough to run again... after 8 years. Another would be learning how to make a PIE! Another would be watching my kids grow and evolve and just be!

I loved all of these pictures. It seems like you had a great year. You and Billy are so cute together! You seem perfect for each other, and I am so glad because you deserve the BEST, beautiful girl! I can't wait to see what this next year has in store for you! Maybe some hungry-runner-children! ;) And maybe we should make a new years resolution to MEET this year! So fun. Happy New Year, friend!

I Loooooooooooooovvvvvveeeeee your blog. It is officially my favorite. You make me laugh with every post. Happy New year!!!

Always love your photos! You are like a supermodel that runs fast! Nike will be so happy to sign beauty and talent in just a short while!!

Is it sad that I notice things in pictures like True Religion denim and gorgeous gorgeous hair extensions.....Really, I'm not vain....

Hope you have a great New Year. I LOVE your blog and I'm super excited to follow your Boston training!!!

What an AWESOME year!! You are so incredibly darling, and one of my favorite people in this world!! I am so proud of you for being so DANG driven and talented. I'll give you some of my love for strength training if you give me some of your love for painfully long bouts of cardio?

Sounds like a great year! How could you both take the whole summer off? Nepotism? I wish I had somewhat of the money to do so! Jealous! You are too cute and lucky!

At January 1, 2011 at 6:20 AM , Blogger Mallory said...

Great pictures! Looks like you had a wonderful year! So jealous that you get to take the whole summer off again! What's Billy studying? Hope you had a wonderful New Years!

Happy New Year!! I have so many great moments from 2010 but one of the is for sure running the Los Angeles 1/2 alone for the first time and beating my time.

Love the pictures! So, if I go to Vegas for the Vegas Marathon next year, you going to be there?? I mean you're so close :)

I can't believe you ran your first marathon this year! I assumed you had been running for a longggg time. You are awesome!

Moving in with my boyfriend and our new place! What a great year 2010 was!

At January 1, 2011 at 9:42 AM , Blogger J said...

What a great year you had! I think one of the best points of the year was getting engaged and running! I still don't know if I actually said "yes" to Brian or just took the ring...!
Happy New year! Hope 2011 is even better than 2010!

At January 1, 2011 at 2:21 PM , Blogger Crystal said...

just noticed that you know Holley T! (3rd marathon picture) She and I were pals back in Provo (before I moved anyways). Great year for you!

At January 1, 2011 at 2:59 PM , Blogger the healthy cupcake said...

Love your recap! 3 marathons= awesomeness!

I'd have to say the best part of 2010 for me was running my *first* marathon with Team in Training and raising close to $3,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. And also moving across the country to San Diego with my boyfriend. It was a crazy year!

At January 1, 2011 at 7:25 PM , Blogger Katie said...

this is terrific - what an amazing year!

I loved reading through this!!

You are so pretty. So totally unfair. I am going to go eat a gallon of ice cream now.

I look forward to every blog post you write. I secretly dream about being out of college so I can run all those marathons and half marathons. So being able to live those through you is amazing. However, I will probably never be as fast as you, but I still have two more years of division 1 collegiate racing under my belt to experience! Can't wait to see what 2011 brings you :)

I live 5 minutes from La Sirena Grill and the blackened salmon salad is my favorite (and everyone elses fave that I know, you aren't alone)! How they make it THAT good...I really don't know but wow. Drool.
