2010-day one-

A beautiful day today! Sun is shinning, temps in 20's, slight breeze. I've decided on an every other day approach to my running right now. I want to ease back in and add some other strengthening stuff for a while. Then I'll begin to obsess about miles again! I logged 1497.76 miles last year. I imagine running about that D this year. I'm looking at about the same races, too. My big hope is to take a vacation to Yellowstone this year, see my Aunt in Colorado, get my golf game back to decent, plant some more trees, love my wife more, it's all doable!
I am not one to make resolutions. Sad fact: 92% of resolutions fail, 80% by Jan 21st! But I believe in self discipline. That is why running and runners are very special people! We are motivated and disciplined. Hope you reach all your goals this year and set bunches of PR's!! Peace! Totals-2.63 miles

1,500 miles is a great accomplishment. The other stuff makes you a Real Man.

I've enjoyed your blog from last year and hope you continue on for 2010.

You had some really great mileage in 2009 and new goals for 2010 sound perfect! If you make it to Colorado to visit, give me a shout - maybe we can go for a run together! Happy New Year!

Hey MArk,

Man, was our mileage totals close this year. I think I ended up at 1481 or close to that. My plan is to increase that this year. Now it is time for you to have that break through and smash that 4 hour barrier. Find a race that will accommodate that goal!

Happy New Year, Mark. I hope all of your hopes for 2010 come true.
