It's a little hard to believe that 2013 is almost over. It seems like each year just goes by faster and faster. Unless you are on a juice fast and then 30 days feels like an ETERNITY!
In this blog post I want to recap all the fun running things that happened this year. Mainly so I'll remember them, but also because it's fun!
Races and Medals
Here is the collection of Medals the Hubbo and I picked up this year.
I only put one in from each race with the exception of the Route 66 Medals since his was for the Full and mine was for the Half.
This year I ran in a total of 13 Races in 3 States.
1 Ultra Marathon (50K) - The Go Short, Go Long, Go Very Long
1 Marathon - Little Rock, Arkansas
3 Half Marathons - Jenks Half, Route 66 Half, & Nike Women's Half
3 15k Races - Tulsa Run, Quarter Marathon Doubler, & Sweetheart Run Doubler
3 Timed 5ks - Purple Stride, Corndog Classic, Route 66 5k
2 Untimed 5ks - Dye Hard Fan Dash & Koman Race For The Cure
My blog turned a year old in October of this year so that's pretty cool. One of my favorite things to do is to look at Google Analytics and see the some behind-the-scenes stuff about my blog.

Random Running Highlights
We qualified to join Marathon Maniacs!
For the first time, we ran 2 races in one day.
For the first time, I ran a race without the Hubbo in another state, the Nike Women Half Marathon in San Fran.
The Hubbo and I both placed 3rd in our age group at the Purple Stride 5k!
I met The T-Rex Runner and The Prez of Marathon Maniacs!
Our Christmas Tree was totally running themed with bibs and medals and race shirts.
My Mother-in-law made me an amazing race shirt quilt and I love it!
