2013 in Races

I always have a good time looking back over the year and I thought it'd be fun to look at this year via races. I've got a regular 2013 goal recap scheduled for tomorrow, too.

One of my goals in 2013 was to run a race a month. While I didn't end up running a race each month, I did run 13 races. I ran 10 5K races, 2 10Ks and my first half marathon. I won 9 of the 10 5Ks, both 10Ks and finished 4th in my first half marathon. I also PR'd several times and will end the year with 20:25 as my 5K PR, 43:06 as my 10K PR and 1:38:55 as my half marathon PR. I'm a happy runner!
