Some of my best pictures of 2013. I ran 10 races this year and set adult PRs at five different distances. While the 2:59 Chicago Marathon is my crowning achievement, I still think the Boston Marathon ranks as my best run experience this year.

I’m doing things at age 38 that I never thought were possible when I was 10 years younger. Hopefully I can keep it up as a 39-year-old. It’s taken a lot of hard work, but every step, every drop of sweat, every roll of the foam has been worth it. Thank you all for joining in the joy and the pain. It’s been a great ride, and I’m excited for where it will continue to take me.
