My look back @ 2011

This year has been a really fun year for me running. I wish I knew exactly how many miles I have put on these two feet of mine. All I know is that I have put the most memorable miles of my life this past year!

Since Miss Zippy's line of questions have been the standard to outline this past year, I guess I'll do the same:

Best race experience? 
For me, it has to be 2011 Worcester Half Marathon. It wasn't a big event like the RnR halfs, but it was my first half. I had registered for it like 3 weeks prior to it, but I was ready for it.
I literally held back tears as I crossed the finish line because I could not believe what I had just accomplished.

Best Run?
Ernie, my co-worker invited me on one of his trails runs during lunch. Honestly the best 7 miles I have ever done!
The entrance to one of the trails
Best new Gear?
My iPod. I picked up a new one after my last one died during the RnR Providence half.

Best piece of running advice you received?
Slow down. You get better with time, not by killing yourself. - a good friend

Most inspirational runner?
I would say YOU guys. I love reading about your running experiences. I learn so much from each and every single one of you. You guys are helping me become a better runner (and blogger). Thank you all.

If you could sum up your year in a couple of words, what would they be?
I'll do with pictures:
RnR Providence Half

Running With the Wolves - 10k

Harvard Pligrim 10k @ Gillette Stadium

Warrior Dash -NE

This was a great year for running. Hope 2012 is more of the same. Next year I plan to become a marathoner. Bring on 2012!!!!
