Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everyone! We ended the year in the best possible way - with the last run of the year. I did a 21 mile training run today and it was AWESOME. Everything about it was great, I honestly could have done 26.2 today without a doubt. Every minute of the run flew by and it was a beautiful day. Today is the 9th anniversary of when Brent proposed to me. As we were running (Brent joined me for about 14 miles) I thought to myself "Hmmm...if he had known 9 years ago that I would be dragging him out for these long, long runs would he really have asked me to marry him?" Over lunch I told him about it and he laughed and said "No way, especially after you waited until I had food poisoning (thanks to a chili dog at the Chicago airport) to wear me down and get a dog!" Ha! He loves Pippin (now). AND, tomorrow is our 7th wedding anniversary! We got married January 1st, 1999 at 2 pm in Memphis. The past 7 years have FLOWN by and I can't wait for the next 70!

Happy New Year to everyone! Best wishes for a safe, prosperous and healthy new year filled with lots of running!!

Happy Early Anniversary! Happy New Year!

What a great way to end the year. A super good 21 miler. I've only run that far once in my life but it sounds like you had a far better time with it. Congrats on a great run!

And how cool is that that you had the wedding so close to the proposal date too. I'm trying to remember when I proposed to my wife. Hmmmm. Ok, don't tell her I can't remember. :)

Happy New Year, and Happy Anniversary :)

You put in a LOT more training miles than I did. I'll make it over that line, but not as strong as you will... way to go! '06 is our Marathon Year!
