I still need a picture of us in our matching trisuits

Notes:
  • I lost one pair of sunglasses due to a bat this year. In addition to the bat I saw 4 weasels, a snack, 2 possum, many deer, and plenty of other animals this year.
  • I ran with a lot of friends this year for training runs and I loved it.  I need to do this more. 
  • I was very close to a lot of my goals this year including breaking 2 hours in the half marathon and breaking 3 hours in the Olympic triathlon.  I know I can get there but 2014 is going to be focused on the Ironman so I don't know if it will happen this year.
  • I'm still getting faster and I can push myself harder than I think. Mental strength will be important this year!
  • I spent countless dollars on new equipment and clothing.  Next year I should track that. On second thought, maybe that's not a good idea.
  • I participated in 6 more races than in 2012 (14 vs. 8) and only spent about $40 more. I've already spent over $700 for 2014 though. 
  • No injuries this year!
