2007 is Over. What did you learn or accomplish this year. (Read 177 times)

    It has been great spending the year with all of you. Big grin I'm so glad I found this web site and I truely want to thank Eric for all the hard work. As I look back on the year I have learned a few things: -I'm not as young as I used to be and I don't heal as quick. -26.2 miles seems to get longer every year. -I'm pretty sure my best PR's are behind me but thats ok... -Once your reach one goal, you must make another or your life gets boring... -I sometimes hate to have to make time to run, however, I really really hate not being able to run when I want to due to injury or other priorities. -You really need to watch out there when your running. 2 near misses with cars, 1 almost fight due to a bunch of dumb teenagers and my big mouth. -It's still amazing to answer questions like, "is the Marine Corp Marathon longer than the Shamrock Marathon????" Accomplishments: -Marine Corp Marathon -National 1/2 Marathon -Cherry Blossom 10 Miler -Army 10 Miler Oh yea, 1601 Miles........ And the one thing I know I have learned is that I really really love runniing and how it makes me feel. Everyone have a great New Year and I'll see you next year........Good Luck in reaching your goals. Big grin Big grin Big grin


    Imminent Catastrophe

      Well, it looks like I will be cutting back for awhile at least, until I can get some treatment for my foot. I'll probably just be doing "maintenance" runs of 10k, 3x per week or so for a few weeks. That will put me pretty far behind the pace rodent, it doesn't look like 1500 is going to happen this year Undecided I may not even make 2000 km. Buh!

        That stinks, Perfesser. Sorry to hear about your foot. Rest it well and here's to a speedy recovery (toasts coffee cup towards Georgia).

        When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
