2012 Recap 2013 Goals

2012 was a huge running year for me and in turn, was an awesome year personally. Running has kept my anxiety in check, and also leaves me a lot more relaxed (except when I get excited about upcoming runs!). I was able to stay healthy in terms of sickness and injuries too. Here's a rundown of the stats with apologies to Muddy for stealing his format.

Miles: 3004 (2501 in 2011, 1396 in 2010)
Days Running: 303
Average miles per running day: 10
Days off for sickness or injury: 3
Highest mileage week: 80 (week of August 27th)
Lowest mileage week: 41 (week of January 23rd)
Average miles per week: 58
Miles by the month: 232, 232, 234, 247.5, 225.5, 263, 255, 266.5, 271.5, 252, 277, 248
Average miles per month: 250

For 2013, I'm going to keep pushing myself to get faster. Blogging the last three years has certainly helped me stay consistent with my training, and now also using Stava is further motivation. I love being part of a growing team (WTAC) and racing team competitions. Goals include:

Sub 17 minute 5K
Sub 5 minute mile
PR at every repeat trail race
Run Pisgah 50K again (and train properly)
Run a road half marathon (finally, and sub 1:20)
Run at least one more long trail race during the year
Run for WTAC in all local team races (and win!)
Take the KOM titles for the DuVal Trail and Gilbert Stuart Rd Climb
Continue semi-regular long trail runs with my friends
Team Hammett Brothers win at the Beaver trail race

This list could go on and on and on. I'm hoping for another healthy year (mentally and physically), and lots of miles!!


  1. Amazing year Jonny! Can't wait to see what you do in 2013!

  2. Great stats for the year, Jonny (3000 miles??? What?), and those goals look really good! Glad to be a part of the team, and I'll see you on Sunday!

  3. 3,000 is an amazing feat. And to think you were too modest to mention your accomplishment when I saw you New Year's Eve! Really glad to run with you, and looking forward to many more. You push and help me to achieve my own accomplishments.

  4. Team Hammett brothers for the win in 2013? I think I know who needs to step it up!
