So I'm out running my race.... But I thought I'd post this fun tagging idea where Audrey tagged me!

2008: a year in review (not in numerical order)

4 favorite memories from 2008:

2. Graduating from college in May

3. Finishing my First 1/2 Marathon, and then running my Second 1/2 Marathon the weekend after

4. Getting my first grown up job, and all the pros and cons that come along with that

4 favorite movies watched in 2008:

1. Sex and the City

2. Burn after Reading
