Running Year Review: 2013 (In Pictures)

Another fun year of running has come to a close. Instead of blabbing about my year, I thought it would be fun to share it in pictures. So, without further adieu...

Ice formed on my water pack hose at the Icy-8 hour ultra. 
A fun race that lived up to its name! 40 miles in 7:32:36.
Valentines Day 5K with friends.
Became an Ambassador for Nuun! RnR DC Half.
New Jersey 100 Mile.  Me at mile 50. Ended up dropping out at mile 70 because I was frozen to the core. Hoping to finish my second 100 mile attempt in June!
Course was a little muddy for the 100 miler
Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run with friends

Flying Pig Marathon. Definitely one of my favorite races of 2013. Highly recommend it!
Maine Coast Marathon. Small marathon just south of Portland. Was a lot of fun!
The North Face Half Marathon DC with friends.
Bastille Day 4 Miler with DC Road Runners
The North Face Georgia Marathon with my friend Cathy. I was also a North Face blogger for this event.
Wineglass Marathon
Ragnar Trail AZ with Team Nuun. So much fun!
Team Nuun
Monumental Marathon in Indianapolis. PR'd - 3:42:48
Veteran's Day 50K
Rolled across the finish line. PR'd - 5:13:47
Turkey Trot 5K with friends.
Capped off my year running at The North Face 50 Mile in San Francisco. Awesome race!
2014 promises to be another fun year for me. I recently found out that I will be continuing my partnership with Nuun Hydration as an Ambassador, so I'm looking forward to working with them again. I will be blogging for The North Face again at one of their 2014 Endurance Challenge events.  I've also dipped my toes into writing and will be contributing articles to Trail and Ultra Running in the new year. Be on the lookout for my first published article soon! Be sure to browse their site, too. Pretty cool content.

Training for my next 100 mile attempt starts in January. I'm going to be running the Bryce 100 in Utah in June. I'm certainly not doing myself any favors of guaranteeing a finish at this race, as the course looks pretty killer. But, I look forward to the challenge as well as the beauty I will get to see! 

I hope you all had great a 2013! I wish you a safe and wonderful holiday and a strong 2014 running season!
