Goals I didn't meet:
I did not learn to change a flat. Two years of failing on this goal.
Improve 5K time for the year - only once. I have gotten slower and need to work on this.
Goals I met:
I want to continue to cross train. Totally did this! I spent many months riding, biking and swimming. Great job with this and I loved it.
July 4 5K in South Hero - fun race but so hot
I wanted to race with family. I did 5 races with family members. Love this!
Jameson was taking this picture as Emily was cheering me
on the phone as I ran past. Loved it!
Compete in 4 triathlons - I did 6 triathlons and 1 duathlon. Loved meeting this goal.
The hottest race ever but I might give it a try
again, just not in 2014.
Run New Races - I ran 5 new races, again not a hardship as I love doing this. The best new race was Pumpkin Man Triathlon for sure.
Place in Age Group - Aging up to 60s for the whole year of tris and latter part of running races rocked for sure. I placed 9 times. There's not always a lot of us but I'll take it.
A cold wet day, riding in NH in April but I only
smile when I think about the ride.
Four New Bike Routes - I did do this. This means longer mapped out bike routes. I did one on the New Hampshire coast in the rain which was still quite fun. I did one that involved two ferries and was in both New York and Vermont. One was more to the middle of my state and I won't repeat it but I liked trying it and the other one was over the mountain (and through the woods) and I loved it and have already gone a few times.
Run 4 Half Marathons - I did 5. Plan to cut back for various reasons next year. Yet I love them so will I really?
Be in Top Half of Field - four times, nothing great but I did it a little.
Race a Month - I always like this goal as it gets me doing new races. I did not do this but I'm calling it a success because the only month I didn't race was March when I was recovering from a sprained ankle and that was a wise decision. I raced 21 times. Apparently I like racing.
Goal I am Most Proud of:
I did not meet this goal in 2012 but this summer I rode a century!!! It was a sponsored ride but I rode it alone. It was a great ride. I was very proud and hope to do it again next summer.
