my running adventures – barefoot or otherwise
Running Review of 2013!
Well, here it is! My first blog post in ages, and a review of my running year!
Below is a table of the races I’ve competed in, along with all the important stats! You’ll see that blog posts that relate to these events have been hyperlinked for your viewing pleasure! (NB: The Notts 10 mile went so well for me that I took three blog posts to write about the whole process!)

If any of you have the time, you could probably calculate all sorts of stats about these numbers. And if you have, I’d love a copy of them!
What I’m most pleased with this year, in terms of running:
How has your running year 2013 been? What have been your highlights?
OK, next up – a look to 2014 in terms of my running goals, both realistic and less so!
