I know its two days into the new year, but the final weekend of 2011 left me no time to sit down and write this with family christmas, NYE and a surprise baby shower (not for me, my boyfriend’s sister-in-law). So nothing like starting the new year off right with a look back at last year.
After re-reading my first post from 2011 and reading all the goals I had set for myself, I smiled as I had completed every single one.
-Cleveland 10-miler 4/23/11
I completed this race, my first at this distance, with some great friends. Ran it in 1:50.
-Rite-Aid Cleveland half Marathon 5/15/11
Second half marathon completed in a faster time than my first- 2:16. Bonus, my mom got to see me start and finish this race along with the best boyfriend a girl could ask for.
-Fort4Fitness half marathon (Fort Wayne, Ind.) 9/24/2011 ….well I ended up running the Akron Half on this day instead of going home to run this race in my hometown. Maybe 2012 will be my Fort Wayne race debut. 🙂
Possible marathon destinations:
Outer Banks, November 12-13, 2011; Outer Banks, NC
Marine Corps, Washington, D.C., Oct. 30
Chicago Marathon: 10/2011
(I just want to run in a city that I can also make a mini vacation out of my marathon as well. )
Well, 2011 was the year of 26(.2)! 🙂
I followed through and ran my marathon in a destination city to vacation in. It was absolutely the most memorable weekend to date! 🙂
-I want to run double the miles I ran in 2010…..
miles ran in 2010: 306
miles rain in 2011: 752.1
Bam! Didn’t think I would more than double my mileage, but thats what happens when you train for a marathon!
Wanna know what I have in mind for 2012?
Catch my next post! 🙂
Happy New Year!
