Running Through 2012

Looking through my workout diary and my race history I've really kicked running butt this year!

Miles run: 1303 year to date.  I got my last 9.75 miles in on Saturday.   
1303 miles!!  
I think that's awesome.

I have completed 12 races this year, setting 6 new PR's and 4 age group awards.  Totally rocking my running socks off.

1/15 - Houston Marathon, 26.2 miles, 3:37:48 (PR)
2/19 - Austin Livestrong 1/2 Marathon, 13.1 miles, 1:44:57 (PR)
3/3 - Tiara 5k in Pflugerville, 3.1 miles, 26:04 (pushing 2 kids in the stroller!)
3/23 - Capitol 10k Austin, 6.2 miles, 47:01 (PR)
3/31-4/1 - Texas Independence Relay, 17.25 miles total for 3 legs
5/20 - Deutschen Pfest Pfun Run, 3.1 miles, 21:56 (PR), 1st in age group
6/14 - Moonlight Margarita Run, 3.1 miles, 22:57
6/23 - Run to Hear Pflugerville, 2.91 miles, 20:47 (would be PR, but the course was short), 1st in age group
9/23 - Austin Marathon Relay, 7.5 miles, 55:18.  Team time 3:56:57
10/27 - Adoption Half Marathon, 13.2, 1:40:54 (New PR), 3rd in age group
12/3 - Round Rock Reindeer Run, 3.1, 21:38 (New PR), 1st in age group
12/9 - Dallas Marathon, 26.49 miles, 3:48:54

*oh, and I did the Komen family mile with Gwen in November

So what's next?  I'm working on that.  I have already cancelled my plans and deferred my registration for the Houston marathon next month.  Only a month after Dallas, I originally signed up as a backup race if I couldn't run Dallas at all, or to run the half with my sister.  After running Dallas I will not be recovered enough to run another marathon so quickly.  And John has booked a work trip to India leaving on the same day.  All the signs are saying "NO" so I backed out of that race.  Houston may end up being my next goal marathon for 2014.
