Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my 56th birthday. I am so very grateful for the life and health I enjoy today. It is absolutely miraculous - considering where I have been.

I did 2 half-marathons and one triathlon (my 4th tri) in this past year... I am really thinking about a whole (26.2 miles) marathon in 2008. This is a huge leap for me. I think I shall put the effort into training and let the results be what they are. There is no use in deciding in advance that I can't do something! God knows, I would never have thought I could ever do what I have done so far!

I didn't do the Rudolph's Revenge race today. It was 4 degrees when I woke up this morning. I am just not going to go out and run in that kind of weather!

Thanks to you bloggers. You have helped me so much on this journey of fitness...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! You had a great year, may the upcoming one be just as grand. :)

I wouldn't have gone out in 4 deg weather either!!

Happy Birthday -- belatedly!

Great pic! It looks very familiar. In fact, maybe I'm off in guessing, but is that that lake/park on the corner of 26th and Kipling?

Jess, Close, but no, it is not at Crown Hill, although I do love to run there.

It is at Kendrick Lake, at Jewell and Garrison.

Happy belated birthday. I did not have you pegged for 54, I was thinking you were somewhere in your low 40's. Keep up the great work. Good luck in 2008.
