I can truly say that I have learned so much just this past year alone. Adding in a weekly routine of weight training and yoga should help in some keys areas of needed attention. I am most amazed at the new steps and knowledge I am taking towards better nutrition. Having cut 95% of sugar out of my diet for two weeks was an eye opener for me. Even now when I have any decent amounts of sugar I am amazed at how toxic it makes me feel. I will continue this New Year to grow in an even better understanding for an even better running year in 2008.
So I finish this post with random race pictures from this past year’s adventures.
Black Mountain Marathon
Birthday for Scott
Scott running me in at the last station at MMTR. It was a hard DNF but I was so thankful to have him there at mile 33.
Wishing you all a safe and Merry Christmas!!
