The biggest change in my usual running routine was hiring Britt as my virtual running coach. With her training plan and support, I was able to achieve one hell of a PR in the marathon which I am certain wouldn't have been possible on my own.
And a PR of 25 minutes in Fox Valley for a 3:40
Running the Chicago marathon with my L, was an amazing experience that I will never forget.

Grinning like a crazy fool for every step of the Fox Valley 26.2
2 Marathons were run with my best friends in the whole entire world.
I took 2 minutes off of my 2011 half time for a PR in the Chicago Women's Half of 1:46:15
Rock n Roll St. Pete (FL), Chicago Spring Half, Chicago Women's Half, Rock n Roll Chicago
While RnR Chicago was a bust because of the heat, I had fun and the photos turned out awesome!
I came back from the hip flexor injury and took 2:11 off of my 2011 time for a new PR of 39:57
No PR this year. My 2011 PR of 22:18 Still stands strong. But I did get 2nd AG, and 2nd overall in the races I ran.
New Year's Day 5K, Run to Remember, Karhu 5k, Grant Park Turkey Trot, Schiller Chiller Trail Run
Loads of memories made with the Churro Bear Dog.

And Lollapalooza! My favorite band was Amadou e Mariam, but Florence and the Machine, and Jack White were also pretty good. The whole day was just a crazy experience.
2012 was a great year.
I got promoted at work, saw family and friends, got to visit a few states, drank over 300+ unique beers and fell in love with the town I live in, Chicago.
I'm welcoming 2013 with open arms. Some things in early 2013 i'm looking forward to: a Chicago Bulls game, and a much anticipated trip to Brasil.
Tchau 2012, it's been fun!
Feliz ano novo!
