Normally I elaborate on the past year's events and list my goals for the new year. I really haven't put much thought into it....yet.....give me a few days and I will have list.
I did kickoff the new year by running a 5K with some girlfriends. When I woke up I didn't know if the race would be in the cards for me. I have been battling the lingering side effects of influenza and was not sure if it was a good idea to run in the extreme cold. I really wanted to go back to bed but the thought of losing the money paid for the registration ended up being the reason I toed the starting line. To cut to the chase, I finished in 40:57. Though it was not a speedy finish, I am happy with the time. I ran most of the race and took a couple of walk breaks because of coughing fits. I felt it was a good way to start 2013 and blow the sick stink off myself.
Happy New Year!
