Goodbye 2012........Hello 2013

Ok so 2012 left 17 days ago but I am just now looking back and thinking forward!  I'm not much of a resolution maker but I do set out a few goals for myself through out the year.

2012 had LOTS of ups & downs for me. The year didn't start out the greatest and to be honest didn't end the greatest either but

 Here is the highlights from MY 2012:

I completed 50 races and received age group awards in 37 of those races

5 of those 50 races were Half Marathons and 1 was a Full Marathon

I FINALLY hit my goal of completing a Half under 2hrs in April 2012 with a time of 1:58:26

In Sept 2012 I beat that Half time for another PR of 1:55:18 (the course was the same:)

I had a 5k PR of 23:57 which was by almost 2mins! (Previous was 25:20)

I pulled my average 5k time down from around 27:15 to 25:30

I beat my goal times I set for a 10k and a 5miler

I successfully completed my second marathon cutting almost an entire HOUR from my first!

I ran 1000 miles for the year

Now what does 2013 hold?? Only time will tell!! I pretty much make my goals month by month so I don't get too far ahead of myself but

Here is a few things I HOPE for 2013:

Get rid of the extra pounds I was lucky enough to find during the Holidays and a few more

Go to Aerobics class more often and on a regular basis

Complete my Hubs first Half Marathon with him (hopefully side by side :)

Cut another minute (or more:) off my best Half time

Complete another Full Marathon

Run 1200 miles for the year


How's your 2013 going thus far?? Staying on track with your Goals/Resolutions??

50 races- thats a whole lot of running in 2012. I definitely think knocking another min off your half time is in store for you in 2013- can't wait to see what other PRs you accomplish this year!
