Wow, I can't believe that today is the last day of 2009. It's flown by! I've heard a lot of people say what a bad year 2009 has been, but for me, it's been a pretty dang good one. Some highlights: Ran the Boston Marathon, ran a huge PR in the Baltimore marathon, completed 2 half-ironmans, signed up for my first Ironman, bought a house, got a new, great job close to home, enjoyed the summer having my cousin in town, got two sweet adorable basset hounds....and, really I could go on and on. I can only hope that 2010 brings as many great things as 2009 did!
I know you are all wondering what amazing and fun plans Dan and I have for New Year's Eve. Because we are quite the rockstars. Let me tell you what our plans will include: I'm taking off of work early, and we are going to see a movie. Then we'll either grab an early dinner (and by early, I mean like senior citizen early, I do not want to have to wait) at Johnny Carinos or some other type of low key chain restaurant, then we'll go home and hang out with our sweet basset babies and watch football. At 9 pm, I'll make my way to bed and read for an hour, max. I'm pretty certain I will not make it up to the midnight hour, as I have not the past 2 years either.
Why are we so lame you might ask? After all, it is New Years Eve! Well, for the past two years - and, tomorrow will make it three - we have run in the Resolution Run 5k in Round Rock. For me, it's a great way to start off the New Year on the right foot, in a healthy positive environment. The race doesn't start until 11 am, so we can still sleep in a little. And, since I am such a
So, by the time the rest of you all roll out of bed in the morning nursing the worst hangover ever, I'll have already run 7 miles and will be feeling like a rockstar. Not that I'm trying to make you feel guilty or inferior.... :)
I hope everyone has a happy and safe New Year!
