Happy New Year!!
In December I ran 81.62 miles compared to 59.36 in November. I signed for the Runner’s world Holiday Running Streak and was doing really good until December 12 when I was just so tired (not just from running) that I decided to take some time off. And I did ! I took 4 days off then ran for 5 more days and then followed by a few more days of running. I still think I did good.
Total miles ran in 2012 was 848.41 miles compared to 736.54 in 2011.
In 2013 I will be traveling across the country to run various half marathons sponsored by the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. Join me!
This year I ran 21 races:
My best race experiences were the ultramarathon and the Ragnar Relay Chicago.
I did the ultra because it was on my list of top 40 things to do and because it was four weeks after the Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Marathon. I already had the training and what is 5 more miles? Ha, it does matter. Still, great experience!!
The Ragnar Relay was also on my list. I had the longest “leg” and struggled to finish it. Overall, it was fun but also exhausting!! My team members were AWESOME!!! I wish I could do it again next year but can’t because of work reasons.
This year I ran in several Brooks shoes such as Ravenna, PureCadence, Glycerin, and PureConnect. My favorite is PureConnect and plan to run in them in all of my races next year. I also became a big fan of PRO Compression Socks. I own five different pairs in various colors and plan to buy more. Hmm, maybe the purple and the orange ones?
1. Finish all of the races I sign up for
2. Run a sub 2 half marathon
3. Run more than 1,000 miles
Just Keep Running!
Looks like a great year of running. I really want to run an ultra!
Awesome year! I applaud all of you who did Madison to Chicago Ragnar this year. It was so darn hot! :)- kilax (ilaxstudio.com) (Saw your comment on Live Half Full and clicked over! Hi!)
No such thing as too much Pro Compression 🙂 Wishing you speedy legs in 2013!
You should run the Chicago Ultra 50K. This year it will take place on March 23.
Thanks! Yes, it was hot one!!
You are right. I will order more socks when they're 40% off. 🙂
