2011 --> 2012

In 2011 I ran 1290.1 miles. If I would have known that is the number of miles I would finish with I would have found time to run 9.9 more but the end of the year kind of snuck up on me. 1300 is just another arbitrary number anyway, right?

In 2011 I started the year with a marathon PR at the Texas Marathon on January 1. I also ran another marathon in New Zealand and hiked in Nepal all with Jakeb.

In 2012 I hope to run in Italy. We are going there at the end of February. I plan to train for the Perth Marathon in June and then spend the week afterwards exploring some of the western part of Australia - just Andrea and me. If we are in Singapore long enough we may go visit the North Island of New Zealand and while we are there run the Speights West Coaster. It looks like fun and how cool would it be to have a tech shirt with the Speights logo on it?

Running has helped me. Running is good for my mental, spiritual, emotional and physical health. I know someday my body will not let me run. I hope it is not for a long long time. I am a runner.
