Wounds licked, ego healed, feeling good, moving forward.
I've been back at 'er for a couple of weeks and I've logged about 35 miles since that fateful day back in October (see race report below). I had a couple of enjoyable runs with V and company, logged about 1.5 hours on the tread mill, and I've run home from work twice. All is good.
My current annual mileage -not that I'm a geek or anything- is 991 miles. I'll break the 1000 mile barrier this weekend and I think I'm on track for coming close to last year's 1260.2 miles ... not that I'm a geek or anything; egads, a geek would log their mileage by two decimal points (I only go one decimal point)... sheesh, running geeks, such LOSERS!
I've registered for three races for early 2010; Hypothermic Half, Cops For Cancer Half, and Air Force Half. I haven't decided on which full marathons I'll be doing, but I've got my eye on Fargo for a Spring marathon and Chicago for the Fall. Time will decide. I'm also communicating with the kindest gentleman in all of Ireland, John Culane (left) of Run Direct Ireland. Visit his blog, Running in Munster Ireland.
I'm also involved with a group planning a new race for next September. I can't go into details just yet, but it'll be the finest 10 k race this city has ever seen. More on this later.
Stay tuned, stay positive, and always remember......it'_ _ g_ _d d_y t_ b_ a_i v_!
