2012 in Numbers

Several other bloggers have summarised their running year in numbers, and I enjoyed reading them so much that I have summarised my year this way too.   I can't wait to compare some of these numbers to next year's and see the improvement!

But first I will start with yesterday's run, because I managed to take pictures on the new phone I got for Christmas!

10 - number of kilometres clocked
3 - number of pictures taken around Wynyard Quarter and the Viaduct Harbour:

1 - number of pictures taken from inside the pocket of my pink running skirt ;)

2005 - year I started running
2007 - year I stopped running - with back pain :(
