Memorable Moments in Exercise - 2009:
Breaking four hours in the Mayor's Marathon in Anchorage, and more generally speaking, getting to travel to Alaska and see how amazing it is up there.
Running the Disney World Full Marathon for the first time, and then getting a massage the next day! And making my Mom run the 5K in the Animal Kingdom. Little did she know that she'd be doing the Half Marathon in '09!
Buying a bike in March. One of the best investments I've ever made.
Signing up and then running the Point Mugu Trail Run, and having no idea it would be so insanely steep.
Mentoring the Spring Season of Team in Training. And getting to hang out with these folks:
Celebrating my birthday by running 24 laps around my neighborhood (12 miles) before going to work.
Setting a personal best at Santa Barbara (with Lindsey!) at the half marathon there in October.
Signing up for the American River 50. Hopefully it's completion will be celebrated on next years list.
Have a safe and healthy New Year's eve. Enjoy the festivities! See you in '09.
