Tell me about your 2012

So last week my adorable virtual run coach Miss Zippy post a running survey asking us to share our running adventures from this past year. I love this idea and simply couldn't resist joining in the fun!

Best Race Experience:
Hmmm this year was pretty huge for me in terms of racing, but not every experience was rainbows and lollypops. So I think I would have to pick The Midsummer's Night Run back in August. This was my first distance race back after surgery, it had great spirit, it was for Sick Kids Hospital, I ran it in my goal time, and I felt strong.

Best Run:
Was probably my 10km Run from last Wednesday. I got my mojo back. I ran fast and strong. And I finished feeling happy and free. It was just perfect!

Best New Piece of Gear:
I have been loving all my new Oiselle gear. But my favourite piece would have to be my Start Line Tee because it's comfortable and reminds me of the progress that I have made this year.

Best Piece of Running Advice I Recieved:
Run YOUR race. It not about competing with other people, running is all about competing with yourself.

Most Inspiration Runner:
This is so hard, because honestly there are so many people I look to for inspiration. Two of my favourites though, are probably Pavement Runner - who consistently racks up the miles and ran his first ultra, and NYC Running Mama (another one of my virtual run coaches) who runs faster at 9 months pregnant than I can on my best day.

Sum up 2012 in a few words:

How was your year?!
