My first day of 2013 Smashbook Style! Running into 2013

I had 2 New Year's resolutions last year, one was to make a Christmas card a week, ( I seriously only made 1!) and to enter the Crafters Companion Challenge once a month ( which I did until they change their entire challenge blog and I missed the last one).
This year my resolutions are to stay organized, keep a clear, calm head and to keep running. That's it!

Last year I made my own Smashbook, and I loved every single page! So this year I bought myself a real Smashbook!
Since my life right now is all about running and I spent my New Year at a running store it was only fitting I make  a running into 2013 Page.

 Good Times, Smile, Memories, January
 Trip to Road Runner Sports, Big Salads at Red Robin's, 3 mile run on the trail.
