While there will of course be a longer end of year review coming in the next couple of weeks, I thought I'd take the invitation from the Runner's Lounge: Take It and Run Thursday. This week's topic: Year in Review in 52 words or less. Two things for the record before I begin. First, this paragraph doesn't count. Second, these short blogs always make me feel like I'm writing haikus. Without further delay, my 2008 year in review:
2008 – best running year so far.
New Orleans marathon – my first. Not very fast but complete.
2 half-marathons. PR’d in one.
Burned 200,000 calories.
Feel strong as an ox and healthy as a horse.
Did something I never thought I could do. Ran 48 Miles in 48 hours. I became an ultramarathoner!
