13 in 2013: Wrapping Up the Year

So as we round out 2013, I am looking back at how much ground I covered...quite literally. 

I participated in the 13 in 2013 challenge. 

Basically, I was excited about running! I committed to running at least 13 races throughout the year. I am happy to say that I have completed the challenge!

Let's take a quick look back:

#1 Committment Day 5K - Dallas, Texas

#2 Charleston Challenge Mid-Winter Classic 5K - Charleston, Illinois

#3 Miller Park Zoo Stampede 5K - Bloomington, Illinois

#4 Earth, Wind, and Fire 5K - Champaign, Illinois

#5 Penguin in the Park 5K - Decatur, Illinois

#6 April Fool's 5K - Urbana, Illinois

#7 Illinois Mentor Program 5K - Champaign, Illinois

#8 American Heart Association 5K - Decatur, Illinois

#9 Presence Covenant Health Center Illinois 10K - Champaign, Illinois

#10 Biggest Loser Run/Walk 5K - Rockford, Illinois

#13 32nd Annual Boys and Girls Club Turkey Trot - Ridgefield, Connecticut

#14 (bonus) New Year's Double: New Year's Eve 5K - Allen, Texas

So as one challenge ends, another begins. I will be joining hundreds of runners as we take on 14 in 2014! The great thing about this challenge is it is truly for everyone. Do you want to complete 5K's, 10K's, half's, trails, or all of the above? There is a place for you! 

So head over to the link above and sign up! Plus they have super cool badges to display with pride and to show you are truly nuts!

Be on the lookout for my upcoming races in 2014! I would love to meet up with readers as I tackle a new challenge.

Happy Running!
