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…

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.
