If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes
Things here at the Snail's Place are winding down for the year. We have crossed the threshold of Winter; we are daily gaining minutes of sunlight here in the South. I can't help but reflect back upon the year and be grateful for all that has transpired.
I have been fortunate to maintain gainful employment, I have even managed a transfer from the sleepy resort located in Savannah, to the hustle & bustle of Atlanta. In this new city I have connected with a wonderful running club(GUTS)and have started forming relationships with some very cool trailrunners.
With these awesome trailruuners, I have been exposed to some fantastic locations and events. The Pinhoti 100 Mile Run being one that really sticks out in my mind. I plan to return to Helfin, AL to toe the line at this race in the future.
Looking forward to 2011, I am currently in the base building stage of training, working towards 2 50k's(Sweetwater & Chattooga) and the Savannah Rock & Roll Marathon in November. I might even throw in the Wood Ferry 24 Hour run for fun....who knows. I think the race that I am most looking forward to is the RC Cola & Moon Pie 10 miler in June. This race will take place the weekend my sister is getting married and I will get to run it with my brother. The only thing that may make me happier than seeing my sister get married, will be the chance to log some miles with my brother.
2011 will bring a year of continued fitness for myself & my Sweetest Boo...On the trails and in life in general. To have my family back together again is the greatest gift given to me in 2010.
Thank you to all who have been on the journey with me, you all inspire me in so many different ways. I look forward to continuing to "trudge the road of happy destiny" with you all!
