Twelve Months of Races - Recap in Pictures





I almost can't believe I did it!  I ran at least one race a month, every month, for the last 12 months, starting in August of 2011.  I ran races in good weather and in the rain.  I ran races when my diet and exercise were getting off track (see December 2011).  I ran races in the heat and I ran races in the cold.  I ran races with friends and I ran races alone. I just kept running races.  As to not to bore you with too many words,  I thought I would do a recap in pictures of the races I ran over the last twelve months.  Me? Too many words? Never!  You can click on the link of the race name if my words do not bore you and you want to read my race recaps (no pressure).

July 2012

It was fun to recap my year of racing and very motivating to see how much my pace has improved over the last year!  It is no coincidence that I started to PR almost every race about 30 days after I began my weight training.   I plan to continue to run at least one race a month in 2012 (and beyond).  How are your races going?  What race is coming up next for you?

Keep Running,

Lea
