2011 Year end summary!

It's good to look at the accomplishments of the past year as it winds down.  In the beginning of 2011 I had the goals of running a half marathon and losing some weight.

I surpassed my half marathon goal by running two half marathons and a full marathon.  In addition I ran several other races for a total of 10 for the year.  I also made great improvements in speed as I continued to train.  Bear in mind as you look at the table below that I expect to be slower for longer races.  This is why my average pace/mile doesn't steadily decrease even though I've made progress on the speed front.

As a result of training for races and paying close attention to diet I also managed to lose 50 lbs in 2011!  

I would say the year has been a success! Stay tuned for next year's goals.
