So long 2011... Hello 2012!

Happy New Year everyone!

A year ago I started this page in an attempt to document my running while encouraging others to get out and run.  I’ve had some major set-backs with two knee surgeries and many other contributory factors slowing me down - “if I can do it, anyone can!

I closed out 2011 on a low note with a few runs - December’s mileage count was very dismal (only 18 miles) and I didn’t run at all in the month of November.  I only managed to run about 215 total miles in 2010.   But in 2011 I logged 732 miles, besting my yearly PR by over 517 miles!  Additionally, I was able to set about 19 new PRs last year!  I am extremely proud of three: 1. running a half marathon under 2 hours, 2. 732 miles for 2011, and 3. completing a Marathon!  I still can’t believe any of it!

I’ve got some big plans for the 2012…  I’d like to see that yearly mileage PR fall again and also finish a marathon under 4:30.  We’ll see…  For starters, I knocked out a short 4 mile run!  It was windy... 

Take care all, thanks for your support!  I hope you all enjoyed 2011 (especially the holiday season).  We wish you all our best for 2012!

Happy running and God bless!
