2012 by the numbers...

Posted Dec 31 2012 1:12pm
Wow, here I sit on December 31, 2012, the last day of the year.  In some ways 2012 is a year that I am thankful to see end but in other ways it will go down as one of my most memorable.  2012 was definitely "the year of running" for me and it was awesome.  I'm planning to post a conclusion to my "Dream Year of Racing" but I thought for today, it would be fun to take a look at 2012 by the numbers...
