Happy New Year!

Happy new year! Here's to a great 2009!

I ran 6.68km yesterday to finish off December with 100.1km -- goal achieved! My 2008 mileage total was 1154.91km. I think that is my lowest mileage total in 3 years, but that's okay. I focused on completing a difficult marathon in the spring, and ran a personal best. I may have slacked off after my ITBS injury, but I never gave up completely, and still ran a strong 10k in the fall. I also took up cycling, which is great cross-training. I even completed my first duathlon. 2008 was definitely a good year :)

I have a feeling that 2009 will be a "take things as they come" year. I have a vague goal of finishing ATB in under 3 hours, but that's about it. I'm not feeling ambitious enough to set any aggressive goals. I might want to try something fun and different; perhaps participate in a triathlon relay or volunteer at a race. I am interested in hearing about other people's goals for 2009...let's hear them!
