This is the end

End of 2009! As far as running goes, it's been a great year. I could have done with out the nagging foot problems of the last few months, but oh well
This year I ran 1531.3 miles. That's up from 1270 of last year. I didn't hit my semi-goal of 2000 since the last quarter of the year saw some seriously low milage. I had some other great milestones. I PRed in the 5k, 4m, 5m, 10k, 10m, 15k, half marathon, and full marathon.
And of course, the cherry on top, I FINALLY qualified for Boston.
Not only is this the end of the year, it's also the end of the decade (which honestly I didn't realize until like last week). This decade has been my 2nd life as an athlete. I got back into running in 1999. Since then, I've run 115 New York Road Runners races, ALL of them as a Front Runner. I've also done countless other road races and triathlons including 3 Ironmans and 8 marathons (4 NYC)
That is a lot!
I'll be starting of the next decade getting ready for Boston, the Shamrock half marathon which I'm running with some of my BQ Babes, and TImberman, a half ironman. Beyond that I'm not sure what 2010 will bring race-wise. I've had so many marathon cycles over the last 3 years I may sit the fall out. We'll see! I do plan on running more with Bea, and Loren, and riding and swimming more.
Here's to many fun and happy miles to all of you.
Happy New Year.
