2011: Keep the Fun Going

"Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul."- Douglas MacArthur

Last year my main goal was to start having fun with running again. I quit worrying about logging a certain number of miles and began running where I wanted to and when I wanted to. I was a much happier runner and that remains my main goal for 2011. I also have some specific goals, but before I can work on any of them, my IT band has to heal. It's getting better, but I'm only up to about 3 hours at a time. : (

2011 Goals:

1. Get the IT band healed in time to do a 50K at Nantahala Fria
2. Bartram under 39 hours
3. SCAR under 24
4. Massanutten under 32
5. Foothills under 24
6. NMAR under 32
7. 100 at Woods Ferry
8. 100 plus at Black Mountain
9. finish the 900 miles of trails in the Smokies
10. Keep running with Tony and maybe get an adventure race in.

Happy New Year!
