2012 Running Recap

Megan from Run Like A Grl wrote a post called “Running My Way Through 2012: Recap.” This was the first year I was coming back to running in a year off so I thought it would be a fun idea to do....

Best Race Experience – This is tough because in my eyes all of my races were awesome because I was back to running and racing.  I think the Shamrock Half was my favorite race - after this, I knew I was back!! Plus I ran in the place I was born -- that was kind of cool!
During Shamrock Half
Best Run – My best run was probably when I ran with Tara from CrossFit.  We just talked and chatted the whole time.  It was only three miles, but was nice to get to know her better and run and chat! Plus all my runs getting ready for the Philly Half with Lauren & Jen -- miss running with them!

Best New Piece of Gear – can I say something I just got haha, because I can't WAIT to use my Garmin -- probably my favorite thing this year was my super cute outfit from Saucony - I'll have to add a picture later...
Best Piece of Running Advice – It's not the speed or the time -- it's getting up and getting out there!! Since the Philly Half, I have had a hard time getting back into my running.  I have two weeks till the Disney Marathon, and I'm not prepared at all.  The most I can do at this point is just get some time in on my legs and push through it.  I am hoping that 2013 and new fun stuff will help kick my back into gear!

Most Inspirational Runner – There is no one person who has been the most inspirational for me, but a collection of my friends, other runners, twitter loves and people whose blogs I've fallen in love of reading!! I am so looking forward to 2013 and getting back out there more!!

If you could sum up your year in a couple of words, what would they be? – Challenging, fun, life-changing.

Answer any of the questions above!

What words would you use to describe your year?
 How is 2013 going to be different for you and how you #SweatPink?

  2. I am doing the color run in March! I can't wait. My goal is to at least do a 5k every month. I'm not a big runner so it will keep me motivated to try to beat my time every month. :)

    1. I did the Color Run & Color Me Rad last year -- awesome time!! Did you join #13in2013? I'm posting Monday on it.

  3. Sounds like a great year! I did this a week or so ago, too. Love reading these recap posts! Philly was my very first half in college... I want to get back and do that race again some day.
