Highlights from my Running in 2015

I love getting to this time of year and looking back at the races I've done and the miles I've ran over the year.

This year I have ran a total of 20 races. (Compared to 12 last year)
  • 1 full marathon
  • 9 half marathons (3 in KY, 3 in IN, 2 in TN, 1 in Canada)
  • 1 10 miler
  • 1 8 miler
  • 1 5 miler
  • 6 5k's
  • 1 3k
Yearly Mileage: 835 miles (Next years goal:1,000+)

My favorite race was the Niagara Falls Half.
I hadn't seen the Falls since I was little, so it was so exciting seeing them again. Also because I got to spend the weekend with my dear friend Michelle, who lives in Canada. Best weekend ever!
I didn't get an PR's this year, but the one where I got closest was the KY Derby Half. It was also one of the rainiest races I ran. As you can see, I'm soaked!

My hardest race would've been my marathon, the Indy Monumental. It wasn't so hard physically, as it was mentally. I had a very hard time getting into the game. I had lots of doubts and fears leading up to it. It ended up being my slowest marathon ever. But, I finished and I did get my fave race pic of the year at that race!


I am very happy with how my year in running went. I had no injuries! Woohoo!
In 2014 I had several injuries and had to cancel some marathons. I had none of that this year!

I have something crazy big planned for next year, so my mileage will be much higher. I can't wait to talk more about that!

I'm linking up with Marcia, Patty and Erica for Running Highlights.

What is a highlight from your year?
