2012 seemed to fly by, yet January feels so very long ago.
All in all, 2012 was a pretty good year.
I ran 9 half marathons. The running joke was that since I ran 3 in 2010 and 6 in 2011, I clearly had to run 9 in 2012. No, I am not running 12 in 2013. The streak is over.
I also ran 3 10 milers, 2 8ks, 2 10ks, 4 5ks, 2 5 milers, and a 15k for a total of 22 races. That’s a lot of miles raced. And I made it through the year uninjured too!
I set new PRs in the 8k, the 15k, and the half marathon distance (though this was the first time I ran a 15k, so that was pretty much a guarantee).
I trained for a marathon and completed a number of training runs at brand new distances.
In non-running news, I traveled a lot this year. I attended the weddings of five friends. I went to Ireland for a little over a week. I spent way too many, yet not enough days in Disney World. And I had a blast doing it all.
I went on a few very bad first dates that I will not detail here, but someday I should write a book.
Most notably, I picked up my blog again after months of hiatus. Considering I started this online writing thing back in 1999 or 2000, I figured it was time to get back to it.
2012 was a pretty fun year. Here’s hoping for an even better 2013!
