2012 brought a whole new adventure in running. I went from not being able to run at all in January, to completing my first full marathon in September. A few injuries along the way, but a great running year.
Total miles ran: 915
Total races: 10
Awards won: 2
Fox Firecracker 5k. 5k PR
Packers 5k. Ran with my sister.
Festival Foods Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving
Cheesehead Half-Marathon. 2nd in age group
The majority of my races this year were ran in the summer and this summer in Wisconsin was HOT! It seemed like every time I had a race it was ridiculously hot. I did a lot of my training in the afternoon after work, which I think helped in these races because it was obviously hotter in the afternoon. Most of my runs took place on the Fox River Trail, either near my house or in DePere. I also ran quite a bit on Saturday’s with my running group.
I had a great racing season in 2012 and I expect 2013 to bring even BIGGER races and accomplishments 😉
