2008 review

So… how was your running year?  Did you accomplish your goals (if you’ve forgotten what they were, perhaps they are here)?  Personal bests (or worsts)?  Share your 2008 running highlights, lowlights, or just interesting stories.

  1. 2008 was filled with running ups and one down. I joined PGRC – yea! I also (barely) finished the Komen race. It was way too hot for that! I finished the WDF in 31:54. Didn’t know I had that in me. I completed the Army 10-miler in 1:56 (I was shooting for 1:50 but those bridges killed me). But after the 10-miler, for some reason, my eating got out of control and I packed on 10+ pounds. So now it feels more difficult to run. I’m hoping to get back into running form by March! Also, something is going on with my left ankle. Ortho doc said a minor sprain but I’m ready for it to stop hurting now. :o) All in all, I pushed myself more than I thought I ever could. I’m looking forward to continuing my running journey in 2009.

  2. 2008 was GREAT!! I really enjoyed coaching the 10k program. Every week I looked forward to running with the participants and helping them to reach their goals.
    Dave, Kim and Karen were the best pace leaders!!! This program helped me to focus and continue on with my running goals. In other words, everyone kept me on my toes or should I say sneakers…

    Can’t wait to see what happens in 09

  3. It was mostly a very good running year although I missed several races due to an allergic asthma (I guess that’s what it was), which I had for several weeks in the early summer. But when I started back running, I improved my time in each successive 5k I ran, and I ended the season running two of my favorite races—the Grapevine and the Celtic Solstice—in fairly respectable times. It’s great to have a group like the PGRC to run with.
