Year in Review Part I

I've seen a few people posting this lately so I headed over to MissZippy to get the low-down-skinny....She asked her readers to post a 2011 Reveiw. I figured this would be a nice leeway into my in depth review of 2011. So here you have it:

Best race experience?
Hands down I'd have to say my White Lake 70.3. What an accomplishment! And when I finished, after going hard for SEVEN hours I was thrilled, elated, amazed, tired and HAPPY TO BE ALIVE.


Best run?   I'd have to say my recent 10k PR. I ran faster than than I thought possible. I was tired but fought hard against my mind and my doubts. The result is a new found competitive spirit and confidence that I can do this, and I can do it faster!

    Best new piece of gear?  My beloved Felt, Nelly CIRN.

  • Best piece of running advice you received?    Just run, put the Garmin down and run.

    Most Inspirational Runner?  
    I'm kinda crushin' on inspired by Scott Jurek right now. He's the one holding the microphone.
If you could sum up your year in a couple of words, what would they be? 
Challenging but rewarding.

So there you have....how about you? Did you answer these questions? Let me know and I'll come check out your answers! Or you can answer them in a comment!


  1. Scott Jurek is coming out with a book June 2012. FYI.

  2. 1) Your bike, ah, it's so beautiful. I love it!

    2) Big props on your running advice. I've been leaving the Garmin home a lot lately and I love not stressing about pace.

    3) Totally agree on Scott. Not only is he an amazing runner, seems like a really good guy too.

  3. Scott hits all the highlights a man should have: smart, nice, cute. I agree on that one.

    My biggest running accomplishment this year is actually running. I've had books by the penguin laying around for a long time, and I ran my first steps on May 2, 2011. Started my running blog previous to that, and registered for my first half that day.

    It is my unbirthday now, and I intend to celebrate!

    You rock so hard. Have I mentioned how much I pink puffy heart your blog lately?

  4. like the dump the garmin and just run. i have one from two Christmases ago - still it has yet to be used.

    keep kickin!

  5. I'm posting a super long year in review that I just split into two parts because I'm sure no one wants to read it!

    I love that you did a half ironman this year. That is huge. Can't wait to hear about your 2012 goals :)

  6. Great answers! You did have a pretty awesome year!!

  7. You had an awesome year - yay!! Ummm, I am SO jealous of your bike!!!

  8. Funny you post that pic of Scott. Is that Meb sitting down I see? He's my fav! I like Scott too. Best piece of running advice: run your race with the 9 inches above your shoulders.

  9. You ran for how many hours? Girl you are amazing!


You're pretty much awesome!!
