Personally for 2013 I am thrilled to have a new job, a new running club (Angry Chickens!), a healthy family, a roof over my head, a lawn too frozen for my dog to dig holes in, and a new pair of snow boots. I'm also thankful to be 43 years old--an age that holds particular personal significance and one I hope to honor by making a good honest go at some lifetime personal bests.
I wrapped up my 2012 racing campaign with a solid 9:50.92 clocking for 3000 meters at the 3rd BU mini meet on the 29th in only my second track race since high school and first time racing that distance. It was a great way to wrap up what turned out to be a much better year than I could have hoped for back in about June.
And so we keep on running, because that's what we do. I will see you all out on the roads, trails, track and hills. Onward.
