2013, Year in Review

I have ran 1607.99 miles this year, according to dailymile

Those miles include training for 43 races:

6 – Virtual Races

17 – 5k

1 – 6k, who knew?

2 – 4 milers

1 – 4+ mile race

1 – 8k

4 – 10K

2 – 7 milers

1 – 20k

6 – Half Marathons

2 – Full Marathons

Those are the numbers, but I really learned and gained from this year as well.  I know I can’t run everyday, but I need to run.  I also appreciate that it has taken me from my comfort zone, I have met many amazing friends, and hope to meet more.  I am also inspired daily by those just starting or those who just completed another marathon.

I am not sure where 2014 will take me, but I am always up for the challenge. I am not one to set goals, so you wont see that post from me, but rather I just hope to be able to run injury free, while having fun.

Happy New Year!
