ilanarama: me, The Other Half, Moab UT 2009 (marathon)
My year can mostly be summed up in this image:

2013 in pictorial review

Left to right, that's my Canyonlands Half 3rd AG medal, my The Other Half female masters' trophy, and my CIM 3rd AG plaque. I didn't get an award for coming in second in the Journey of Hope 5K, and the bottle of wine I got for winning my AG in the Run for the Wine has already been consumed. :-)

It was a good year awards-wise, and also PR-wise, as I FINALLY broke my 2010 half marathon PR, and set a new personal best in the marathon which is now my best age-graded race. Mileage-wise, it was also a personal best with 2080 miles in the year - and one more run planned for tomorrow.

I didn't write down my goals for the year anywhere, but I mentioned here that I wanted to run a sub-1:36 half, which I did, and a sub-21 5K, which I did not. I also mentioned wanting to run a 50K, which I did not.

So, what's planned for this year? I've already registered for the Canyonlands half (I got a free entry along with the trophy!) and I would like to get under 1:35 - if not then, then at the Steamworks half in June. I'll be going to a conference in Chicago in April coincidentally timed just before the Lakefront 10-miler there, which will certainly be a PR if I can do it, since I've only run massively hilly 10-milers, and nothing recently. I'd like to beat my 3:35 from two years ago at the Imogene Pass Run. And I would really like to run a sub-45 10K that's not downhill (as is my PR) and break 21 minutes in the 5K.

I don't actually have any marathon plans before Boston 2015, but I'm not ruling one out. And I'm still toying with the idea of a 50K. Finally, as usual, my major goal is to remain uninjured.

I hope the rest of you had good years, too!
