I raced in 4 states Vemont, New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. My favorite half was Providence, it was so fun, I believe Unplugged Half was my best time. This year was the first year I ran a 10k, weird I know. I PRed in the first one, and was only seconds slower in the 2nd one (they were on the same course), the 3rd 10k was the one where I finished last..... I loved the 11k, it was a cool course and so run running with Army people with their rutsacks. The turkey trot was cold, but it was a run race, after running up hill to start, at least it ended downhill. I don't really have a favorite 5k, Shoreham Apple Blossom is super hard and mostly up hill, I like Vergennes it's a route I run a lot, Bristol was HOT!! The Santa run is run, I was a hot mess at the end.
That's my summary of running for the year. I'm registered for 2 half marathons, a 10 miler (auto PR) and a 5k for 2013 so far..

In November, I started a new job 2 days a week as a SAP counselor in a middle school, I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends (Friend Thanksgiving) with family (on Thanksgiving) and at work (GH Thanksgiving).
In December, I got this sickness that won't go away, had a wonderful Christmas, worked a 58 hour week, ran the smallest number of miles ever 12.5, and gave my notice at the group home. I got another 3 day a week (2 days + 3 days = 5 days =full time = no nights or weekends = big changes.
