2008 is Almost Done!



First of all, I have updated the run chart and the event calendar. Please let me know if I got it correct.

Secondly, please welcome Rachel! She will be joining our group! The group grows again!

Thirdly, make sure that you update your miles this weekend! Let us end this year with a bang!

Finally, I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your support and inspiration in 2008. We did some amazing things as a group and as individuals. I don't think that I would have had the inspiration to attempt a marathon if it weren't for this group. It took two attempts but, you know what? Practice does make perfect and I learned a lot from Chicago that assisted me in succeeding in Las Vegas!

I find inspiration with this group all of the time. Meeting Petra, Maddy and Melisa in Chicago was a great experience. Watching and reading as people are setting up a meeting in Orlando for the upcoming Disney events brings back memories. PLEASE! Find the time to meet! It is so important to do so! I've read personal tributes to friends and fellow runners. Thanks, everyone! Thanks a lot!

OK... Now that I've gotten all sappy and sentimental, you guys just get out there and exercise! Run! Walk!

5.85 for me and Baby Isaac! And, might I add, I did not have to take ANY pit stops. Can you believe that????

"Thank You" Charlie for keeping all the records of our eventful year! This has been fun and I am looking forward to 2009!

I ran 14 miles on Saturday.

For all the Disney runners, I will be at the mile 24 food stop. Best wishes to all the runners!

Zero for me. I'll have surgery on Tue 30th and believe I should not run for a couple of weeks.

Looking forward to new goals and challenges...

Happy New Year 2009!!!

This week wasn't easy to get miles in - count me in for zero :-(

I am joining Jade for a zero on this side. At this point, do I even bother with one more week to go?? Halp!
