Got married to Sean surrounded by 250+ family members and close friends. I did wear shoes most of the time. [Posts]
Ran a sub-4 marathon… The rest of the year was unimpressive on running, but I did get in a 38-day run streak and started regularly strength training. [Post]
Rode the newly opened Expo Line from Culver City to downtown LA. It’s nice to have the option to take the train downtown to concerts, games, etc.
Finally got around to that Blogotitlán reunion with people I’ve “known” since 2004. I met Elena and Gustavo (plus wife and adorable daughter) and saw others I hadn’t seen in a while (David, HP, Nathan (and Rosario), and Adriana. Oh yeah, we ran the Carlsbad half marathon or marathon in the middle of it. [Post]
Let go of a longtime goal and finally did what I should’ve done years ago: quit grad school. [Post]
Visited Joshua Tree with Sean for our anniversary. [Post]
Celebrated Mamá Toni’s 90th birthday with the family. [Post]
Attended a wedding in New Orleans, complete with a second line through the French Quarter. Only regret is that my first trip to NOLA was less than 48 hours. [Post]
Attended a table-read for The Simpsons. [Post]
Actually got in to the track competition during the Olympics thanks to Leo Manzano. It also helps that Sean is Jamaican and insisted that we watch all the sprints where the Jamaican men and women dominated… which was a lot of races. [Post]
Took on my first post-grad school full-time job… in the same office. The new job included getting paid to go to Disneyland and the Aquarium of the Pacific. [Post.
Spent Christmas with my in-laws in New York.

You had an awesome year! I’m sure there is lots more to come this year!
You had a great year. I really want to take the train from South Bay to downtown. That’s actually one of my goals for this year!
What a fantastic year for you! 2012 was an amazing and busy year. I think you’re right, we should both commit to blogging about our weddings in 2013. I think coming across sappy is almost unavoidable.
Cheers to a fantastic 2013!
