I planned on posting my 2012 running survey (started by Miss Zippy!) sometime this past weekend but I have been laid out, sick in bed instead. I’m finally starting to feel a little bit better so I figured what better day to recap my 2012 in running then the LAST day of 2012!?
My 2012 in Running
Best race experience?
Wow. This is a tough one. I had so many great race experiences this year it is hard to pull one out as the best. Instead, I will give you my top 3!
3. Running the NYC half marathon (my first half marathon ever!) with my little brother.
2. Running (& swimming & biking) our first triathlon in Aruba with 5 days notice.
1. Reach the Beach relay! This is number 1 because I got to experience it with BLC, meet a ton of awesome new runner friends & fell in love with relays!!
That’s easy. I have yet to encounter another run as majestic as the run that renewed my love affair with running. Read about if you haven’t already hoping for a couple of those in 2013!
Best new piece of gear?
My new Nike long sleeved zip up! Love the thumb holes, color & fit!
Best piece of running advice you received?
“Take 180 steps per minute while you run.” – No Meat Athlete
Most inspirational runner?
So many of the women whose blogs I read inspire me to be better, be faster, be more disciplined but the two that are the most inspiring to me personally are probably Sarah from Once Upon A Lime for how much she has improved & gotten faster over the past year through her dedication & love of running (plus, I’m pretty sure we would be great drinking buddies) AND Skinnyrunner for the insane amount of miles she runs and the insane amount of marathons she has finished (usually in costume).
If you could sum up your year in a couple of words, what would they be?
Not perfect, but great nonetheless
Happy New Years Eve! Hope you had a wonderful 2012 & here’s to wishing you an even better 2013!!
