January starts with a bang as we vie for position and hustle to stay true to personal and professional resolutions. We find our pace and place as the months stride quickly by. The summer comes, fatigue mounts and the finish line seems impossibly far away. Summer slips by and turns to Autum. With determination we press on through the busiest months of the year. At last the year’s frenzied end approaches and we sprint into the holiday finish line.
The week between Christmas and New Years Eve brings to mind those moments after crossing the finish line where you catch your breath, check your time and reflect on the race.
My running highlights of 2006 include:
- Ran a total of 1,260 logged miles (further in reality) in six different States
- Ran 17 organized races for a total of 152.4 racing miles
- Set personal records in the Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k, & 5k
- Raised over $3,600 by running for The Alzheimer’s Association
Whatever your goals may be I wish you a fast and injury-free 2007.
Happy New Year!
