I know, sounds like a good time, right. Well, as your friendly family doctor could tell you, anyone taking those three meds probably has a very painful back. Very, very, very painful. And probably isn't running. At all. Barely walking, probably. Most likely wishing they hadn't been born when they twist their back the wrong way.
Sometimes I just want to trade this body in for a new model.

Yesterday, I saw a woman running down the sidewalk past Reser Stadium in her soccer cleats.
Oh, did I mention we have snow and ice on the sidewalks here in Corvallis? Yep. The city that has white Christmas as often as Phoenix has some of the white stuff. Will it hang around until the 25th?
Get tough, get cold, and get out there and run.

Between the move from Sedro-Woolley to Corvallis and the job hunt and the house hunt and the apartment hunt, I think I ran in about two races last year and didn't do a single tri. Man, that's sad. But 2009 is gonna be a whole different story! It's time to embrace my Masters-ness and try to set some PR's. I'm looking to race in 20-25 races this year. Get ready, get set, and go!
RACES FOR WEEK OF DECEMBER 22nd TO DECEMBER 28th
December 22nd / Tour de Lights 5k / Bonney Lake, WA
That's it. One race. On a Monday night. But you get to see Christmas lights. Get out there and run.
