Running Year in Review 2011

2011 is officially over so like running bloggers throughout the blogosphere I will write my year in review. Overall, by the numbers, this has been a great year. I had many running achievements. However the past few months I've been in a non-running tailspin mostly because of my work hours but there's been a touch of amotivation as well. Looking at the below numbers reminded me that despite working out way less than I'd like and not seriously sticking to any kind of training plan, I made some improvements this year and I should be proud of that. One of the many joys of running is that it takes a long time to get better; incremental improvements should be celebrated! So celebrate I will.
