2012 turned out to be a pretty good running year! My blogging skills have been abysmal, but I made real strides towards accomplishing my goals. Yay!
The big things:
I lost 22 pounds! I was aiming for 30, but I'm happy with 22. I'm down 2 dress sizes. How can I complain about that?
I PR'd in a Half Marathon. I took a whopping minute off my best Half time. Hey it's still a PR!
I PR'd BIG TIME on my marathon time! I took 1h 6 min off my NYC Marathon 2011 time, and PR'd for a marathon by 24 minutes! Of course I had planned to run NYC in 2012 but that didn't happen thanks to Sandy. I ran Harrisburg PA instead. My goal was to finish in under 5 hours, and I made it by 19 seconds. Whew! I wold have been crushed if I had missed that goal by just a few seconds.
Some big news of 2012 is that I was selected to be on the Dr. Oz Show (airing today, repeating tomorrow). I followed the "Shred Revolutionary Diet" for 6 weeks, documenting my progress, and then taped the show with 5 other ladies who had done the same thing. The diet worked just fine, but the Dr. Oz experience was really lacking. I'll write about that tomorrow.
I just had to get those 2012 items out of the way so I feel like I can start again tomorrow with a blogging plan.
I have a great feeling about 2013 - it's going to be a great year. For fitness and fun!
I hope you'll join me on the journey along My Pink Miles!
See you tomorrow...
