Yesterday I capped off 2013, my year of chasing down distance, with a 13 mile run. I set a goal last January to run my first marathon and I accomplished not only that by running Big Sur last April but I then ran my second marathon at Marine Corps in October with a 26-minute PR.
So it was only fitting to ring in the New Year today with 5-ish speedy (for me) miles. If 2013 was my year for distance than 2014 will be my year of speed. But before I lay down my New Year’s run resolutions, I thought it would be cool to look back on what I did in 2013- in numbers.
1,480 – Total miles
2 – Marathons
- Big Sur (4.28) – 4:33:21
- Marine Corps (10/27) – 4:07:06
2 – Half marathons
1 – First ever 10K (53:55)
24:59 – 5K PR and first age group win
27:46:47 – Team Watermelon for my first relay at Hood to Coast (5th place)
11 – Races
So who knows what 2014 will bring but I know I can’t wait to find out. Happy New Year!
You had a great year!
