It’s a wrap! A year of running mayhem, by the numbers

Farewell, 2012! Farewell, crazy running challenge! It was a great year, not only because I accomplished a big goal but, more importantly, because I came to meet and know some fabulous people. Thanks again to everyone who read this blog and supported me in various ways throughout the year. You all rock.

I’m not sure yet what the new year will bring, but I’m working on figuring it out, and looking forward to sharing my adventures with you. In the meantime, here’s a little 2012 graphical wrap-up, just for fun. Happy 2o13!

  1. love it. you are a graphic designer in denial…

  13. You are my hero, S&J! Congrats on a great running year! I will look forward to reading about your new adventures in the coming year.

  14. Congrats on reaching your goal! It has been a blast doing this with you through your blog as well as seeing you at a few races! Happy 2013! Next challenge medal in every state???

    • Thanks!!! Were you at the First Run? I think I heard your name called but couldn’t see you! 😦 I like the every-state idea. Could be doable, although I’m not sure we could manage it all in one year. New England would be a cinch. Haha.

  15. I followed you all year, since WordPress put that post on Freshly Pressed last January. Congrats on hitting your goal! You accomplished a lot, can’t wait to see where you go in 2013!
