2013 Races and Events

Yes, it's that time (past time actually) to do my yearly running recap.  Since I now live in the UK I will start trying to do my dates in the day/month format which is opposite the US way of month/day

Total miles ran: 1348
Total miles cycled: 496 (mostly trainer)

Notable for the year:
*I placed 3rd overall in the Rocket Launch 1/2 marathon which is also my current pb (small races rock!)
*The Capital City 10k is my 2nd fastest 10k ever but it should have been my fastest, darn stomach didn't cooperate
*I won female overall in the Beyond Boundaries 5k (gotta love small races!)
*Placed 3rd overall in the Women Run Arkansas 5k clinic division for the 2nd year in a row
*paced someone for the first time ever in a 5k
*joined a running club in the UK

This year I also had a couple of non-injury DNS races due to the massive amount of traveling in the first four months of the year (was worth it though)

Got rice? Yes, I won what seemed like half my body weight in rice and rice products :-)
