That first year I did a bunch of 5k's and really enjoyed being outside in the elements while I trained for those races. Later in 2007, I ran my first trail race and immediately fell in love with the brutality of trail running. :)
My new years resolution for 2008 was to run a trail marathon, so I did. And then I ran another... and then I ran a trail ultra marathon, just to prove (to myself) that I could. I finished my 2008 year with a great (road) marathon PR of 4:27:31. I would have never guessed that!!!
The the best thing about each race I ran this year was that I outdid myself on each one.
- My first marathon took me 6:52 minutes to finish.
- My second marathon took me 4:57 to finish.
- My ultra marathon took me almost 8:30 to finish.
- My third marathon took me 4:27 to finish.
Very cool year for you indeed.
Happy New Year.
