running 2012

this is #trending and I’m hoping on:

best race. to avoid choosing between hood to coast and my marathon, I’ll say that HTC wasn’t a real “race” since it was more or less just for fun. So yeah. Hands down Wineglass. Never in 23,525,943 years (I’m old) did I think I could run one, and I was pretty damn proud of my time. Not to mention that I loved every step of it (especially at the finish line…) and signed up for another a few days later.

best run. my 20-mile run with Jocelyn. This was double the amount of miles I had ever run in one time, and was a wake-up call that hey, I could maybe run a marathon! (See above.)

best new piece of gear. my garmin. Data is both a curse and a blessing, but it reallllly helped me pace myself at wineglass.

best piece of running advice. “Hey you, run faster.” — random man at McCarren track while running 400 repeats. I sped up.

most inspirational runners. Dude, all of them. But for kicks, Jocelyn for going sub 4 and then some,  Laura for running more miles than humanly possible, Corey for killing her 70.3 and then every race after that, Molly for coming backsuper strong and positive after an injury, Meggie for running a marathon with a smile on her face, and Lauren for braving the VT cold (in shorts….) and continually running FAST.

sum up your year of running in a few words: eye-opening, humbling, challenging, a fucking blast.
