2013 Running and Racing Review

Goals accomplished for 2013:
I set a goal to do 100 weight workouts and completed 55 weight workouts (42 hrs, 55 min) .   In 2012, I completed 57 weight workouts (47 hrs, 43 min).  1.1 per week in 2012 to 1.06 in 2013.  Fell off the wagon big time May to October.

I wanted to do more speed work this year.  Managed a few track workouts early in the year but mostly races.
