I must admit that I was a runner for many years when I was younger. From about 15 years old to 18 years old I ran in a race almost every weekend and ran 20-30 miles a week. I had dresser drawers full of race shirts. Now at 36 years old with a shoulder surgery, back surgery, and gall bladder removal, all in the last 18 months, running is difficult. I've made a resolution this year to run the Crescent City Classic in April and, if I don't get another injury, the Mardi Gras Marathon in 2010.
I really want to run the Leadville Marathon but I have to convine my wife to take a vacation to Colorado, so I can run a race. I think this scenario is unlikely.
Happy New Year to all and good running in 2009.
