SO....here were my goals for 2012...and, too, how successful I was at reaching them.

Participate in at least one race/event each month-PRETTY CLOSE to the mark, I ran 12, but missed December.

Run another marathon-CHECK!

Run more trail races-CHECK!

Drop at least 10 lbs-NOPE.

Encourage others to get out and race-I think so!
