Super job, Nick. I'd love to be able to view your log here on RA.
Since I'm 41 now, I can only hope that I'm running as much in 23 years.
Have a very happy New Year!!

Great stuff Nick, and a belated welcome to RA!!
I got a late start running 3 years ago at 58, but now am getting well over 100 mi/mo. My 2008 goal is 1500-2000 miles, plus some LD races. I'm learning to enjoy running a lot more now.
Are you doing the GWTC 30K on the 12th? If so, maybe I'll see you there. I just started MAF training, so it will be a social run for me. My longest run to date was 15.6 run to Posey's on 12/24/07.

I am greatful. Total miles since 4/22/76--65,343. I am proudest of my consistency over the last 31 years 8 months and 9 days. To be 64 and run more miles than I have run since I was 41--even impresses me!
My "Secret"-- some good genes--running 2-3 min per mile slower than race pace (5-10K). Making running my play. Taking days off. Commiting to being a life time runner--not a flash in the pan. Run/walk/skip when I feel like it--and maybe, most importantly--not taking my running--or myself-- too seriously.
My "speed work" is in the over 400 races I have been in from 1 mile to 100K. Some races "all out"--others helping friends attain their goals.
2008 Running Goals: Run a faster marathon than my first marathon in 1977(3:58). Tallahassee Marathon 2/3/08. Marathon PR 3:16 in 1985.
Run a 50 mile road ultra under 10 hrs. Haven't done an ultra since 1993. 50 mile PR 8:12 in 1983.
I will post often advising folks to take it easy. If you are in for the LONG run--what is the hurry?
I have coached 100's of runners: from 2:20 marathoners to 6hr + marathoners. My favorite runners are the one who are still running Nick
