2012 a year of races in quick review

In 2012 I ran 44 races! With a total of 489.91 miles. It was a lot of hard work but well worth the reward I'm more happy in my body than I have been in a long time, I feel confident and accomplished. I ran my first ultramarathons and marathons this year. It's been quite a year I've made so many new friends through running and it has changed my life in such a positive way. Thank you to everyone who's been apart of my running journey this year.

Here is a pie chart of my race distances for the year:

19 5ks
6 10ks
12 half marathons
3 full marathons
3 ultra marathons
1 triathlon

End of the year review based on a running journal's questions:
1. How many miles did you run this year?
I ran a total of 822.18 miles this year

2. What were your highest/lowest weekly mileage results?
I did have a few 0 weeks due to injury. Week 21 I had 78.4 miles (the week of my 100k)

3. What was your best mileage month?
November I did 98 miles for the month

4. What was your longest run?
Nanny Goat 100k (actually 64mi)

5. How many races did you enter in 2012? What were your best and worst race performances?
I completed 44 races during 2012. My best race performance was when I set a new 5k pr and it was even more special because my 7year old daughter ran it with me. My worst race performance was during the color me rad 5k I was in a walking boot and it was comical in how bad it was, but I had a ton of fun!

6. Do you have a favorite/memorable run from this year?
There were so many memories from so many races it's hard to pick just one. I had so many new achievements PR's in every distance, first marathons and first ultramarathons. I made a ton of new running friends and lost a running friend.

7. What was the craziest weather or other type of adverse conditions you endured on a run in 2012?
California International Marathon was a monsoon, it poured on us. I wore water wings (pool floaties) and ran the whole race with them, despite the foul weather I scored a marathon PR and had quite a few laughs along the way. For me foul weather tends to make great stories afterwards!

8. What were your goals for 2012? Did you achieve them?
My one goal at the beginning of 2012 was to run a marathon, and looking back on 2012 I ran 3 marathons, 2 50k's and a 100k. I'd say I accomplished that goal!


9. What are your goals for 2013?
My main goal is to work on speed, I'm slow and I'd like to get faster so I hope to have some good PR's in the future.

10. Do you have a favorite running-related quote you would like to share?
