Here is a brief year in review for 2009:
I managed to pull in 532 miles which was 200 short of my goal. It has been difficult to find time to run since welcoming Baby Aubri into the family in October!
In 2009 I ran the St. Cloud Earthday 20 mile run in preparation for the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon. I finished both races (one of which was with bronchitis which was stupid!) I completed my 2nd marathon in Green Bay using the John Bingham method which I decided was not for me. In September I ran my 4th consecutive Bear Water 10 mile run and achieved my time goal which was rewarding. Several weeks later I completed The Twin Cities 10 mile race for the 2nd year in a row and ended up with some intense leg pain. Aubri was born shortly after and I ended up taking the last few months off to adjust to life, healing, and being with my new family!
In 2010 I am setting some lofty goals. I am currently hoping to run several races including St. Cloud Earthday Half Marathon, Minneapolis Half Marathon, Twin Cities Red, White, and Blue Half Marathon, and Bear Water Run 10 mile. I am planning to take the year off from marathons and will register for my 3rd marathon when I drop 35 lbs. I am shooting for 1000 miles on my feet and 100 miles on the bike! Wish me luck!
