Number of New Trail Shoes Purchased: 1
Number of Road Shoes Purchased: 3
Times that I have fallen on mother earth while running trails: 3
Pairs of Gloves sacrificed for toilet tissue: 1

Highest Mileage Month: September with 186
Lowest Mileage Month: March with 67

Race Budget: Priceless…right?!! Anyone want to sponsor me??

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.
One of the times I kissed mother earth.

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!!

Great set of stats, looking forward to them all being exceeded in '08 well except the DNFs, gloves and falls!

I can't believe you packed in 4 marathons and 2 ultras and forgot the TP!

PS here's a tip for holding onto the tree, pack 10ft of sting and wrap it around something stronger further away and hang on ;-)

NIce stats, hopefully you will get aother pair of gloves from Santa.

Great job this year and may next year be even better with 0 by the DNF column.

Gotta luv mother earth, I think I kissed it plenty this year as well.

Happy Holidays.
