Quick! It's almost over!

In case you've missed it, 2013 is nearly done. And in the spirit of being a mediocre running blogger (what do you mean it's been over a month since I last posted?!) I figured I drop some quick 2013 stats.

I ran an official 961 miles (1,546km) this year. There are possibly some more unofficial miles but if it ain't in my Garmin list then it doesn't count.

In those 961 miles, I did 13 races totaling 152.2 miles (244.9km):
Chicago Marathon
My first marathon!

F^3 Lake Half Marathon
Nashville Country Music Half Marathon
Get Lucky Half Marathon
Didn't feel too lucky running in this wind

Chicago Spring Half Marathon
Chicago Women's Half Marathon
Rock n Roll Chicago Half Marathon
Rock n Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon (oops, no recap of this. It was Vegas-y)
Viva Las Vegas

Lakefront 10 Miler
Snow. In April. Not what they told me before I moved here!

Soldier Field 10 Miler
I got a sneak peek at the medals by volunteering for this race.

NYRR New York Mini 10K
Shamrock Shuffle
Burgers and Beer 5K

I traveled to and ran (albeit not always a lot) in places I've never been/run in before:
Honky Tonk Heroes

Georgia Aquarium

San Francisco
San Francisco icon

New York City
Love this skyline

Washington DC
Capitol Building

Elfreth's Alley

And I met 43 people (not really, I don't actually know how many, but it was lots) through running.

All in all, I'm pretty happy with this. Without wanting to put too much pressure on myself, next year I'd like to hit up a few more miles but if 2014 is half as good as 2013 I'll be smiling.
