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.
