Running, Fitness, Highlights and Accomplishments of 2012
Another year coming to a close. My husband has referred to 2012 as the “Year of Jill”. As I look back, I realize maybe he is right. I accomplished more than I ever thought possible, pushed myself beyond what I thought were my limits and made changes in my life that were some of my best decisions ever.
My year in numbers…
45 – number of candles on my birthday cake
45 – number of candles on Chad’s birthday cake
5 – number of years I’ve lived in OH
19 – number of years Chad and I celebrated being married
21 – number of years since the day Chad and I met
16 – number of candles on my son’s birthday cake
14 – number of candles on my daughter’s birthday cake
5 – number of hours of sleep I get per night
5 – number of states I traveled to for a race
31 – the distance of my longest run
1065.50 – number of miles I have run so far in 2012
4 – number of running shoes I’ve bought/received in the past year
152:20:50 – approximate amount of time I spent running (Garmin Analytics)
70,000 – approximate number of calories I burned running (Garmin Analytics)
7348 – number of photos I took not including Instagram
Highlights of 2012
Best race experience(s) - After the year I’ve had there is no way I could pick just 1. So, I have 3!
- Running a 2-person relay with Chad and running a total of 31 miles.
- Running the Hat Trick at the Runner’s World Half and Festival.
- Running half marathon #12 to accomplish my goal of running 12 in 2012.

Chad and I placed first in the relay!
