Went out this morning for the last time this year.  The roads were slick and had a skiff of snow on them, and it was about 20 degrees.  I have been running with music since Christmas and it hasn't been too bad, although I won't do it when I run with people of course.  I went up to the end of Juniper and then down Emeline to the tennis courts on Rosecrest and came back on Rosecrest.  7:43 pace for the run.  

This has been a good year for me with running.  I didn't get many miles in and didn't run very many races or run very fast, but I was able to run all year, first time since 2008.  I still pulled off a 2:40:01 marathon.   I won a State Championship with my boys in Cross, breaking the all-time 4A course record.  My best girl won State in Cross (5th fastest all-time as a Sophomore), took 4th at Regionals, and went to Nike Nationals.  My boys also tied for 3rd at Southwest Regionals and just missed an at large bid to the National Championships as a 3rd year school.  We still ended up top 20 in the National rankings with out being invited to Nationals.  I hope to make this next year even better and am grateful for my health again so that I can compete again myself.

Ran up the new Murdoch road and out to the end of Juniper after school.  Came back on Emeline and Mount Ogden.  Hit the last mile in 6:06, not bad for my fifth time out and 19 degrees.  7:19 ave.
