Did I reach any PR this year? Absolutely not. I can't say that I haven't beat myself up over losing my speed. I will say that I was proud of every start and finish line I crossed last year. I always make my Goal A to finish. I ran in freezing cold weather and extremely hot weather. And everything in between! I still have hopes of breaking a 30-minute 5k and breaking 2:30:00 in a half marathon again, but I'm happy to have the opportunity to run and do my best at that moment.
Will 2017 bring on big things? I'm sure it will. Guess I'll have to look back at it a year from now.
