What a year it was !! this year I raced my longest race, AND the shortest. I didn't set out to run a marathon in 2016, it sounded too scary, but I started the training and did it! I secretly gave myself a goal of 20 races this year, but realized by October, that was not going to happen, and I was ok with it.
Here are lots of pictures of my running
My first 5K of the year
Ice Fest 5K- 24.19. My fastest 5K of 2016
Washington DC RnR Half Marathon 1:58:59
My fastest Half marathon of the year
Gettysburg Marathon 4:49. When I look back at this picture, I wonder my I lifted my foot and can't remember.
My son did his first 5K at the Kennett Run this year! I was so proud of my boy! I hope that in 2017, at least 1 brother will join us on the 5K.
July was the month of the 10K and Age Group Awards
|Sister #4 did her first 10K!! We are working on sister #3 running a 10K in 2017|

I have lost speed on my 5Ks, and it was a bit disappointing. I look forward to
working on speed again in 2017
The Best Moment in Running - I loved all the races, I had fun in each and every one of them. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be Bird In Hand; but the best running moment was this one day that I didn't feel like running. I wanted to go stay home and take a nap, but I got up and met the Fleet Feet Group and had a fantastic run with running friends. Whenever I don't want to run, because it's too hot, because it's too cold, because I'm tired... I lace up my sneakers, re do my ponytail and head out anyway.
