Running By the Numbers in 2012; Goals for 2013

I had an awesome year of running 2012, possibly my best ever! Here's a run-down of some of my stats from the year. . .

669.37 – number of miles run during the year (my highest ever!!)
57 – average number of miles per month
13.1 – average number of miles per week
11 – number of races run (3 half marathons, 1 10-miler, 3 10Ks, a 4.1 mile, and 3 5Ks)
2:15:35 – my new half marathon Personal Record (PR) – set at the Talladega 21000 on 16 Sep
28:07 – my new 5K PR – set at the AAAA Chili 5K on Fort Rucker on 3 Nov, while pushing the jogging stroller!!
4 – number of states I raced in (Arizona, Michigan, Alabama, and Washington, D.C.)
16:37 – my 2 mile time from my Army PT test taken just 7 months after Thomas was born
10:26 – my average pace per mile for easy runs in January
9:14 – my average pace per mile for easy runs in December
