This week’s Take It and Run Thursday asks us to write a year in review in 52 words or less. Here’s my summary of 2008, my first year of running. (Note use of contraction to stay within the word limit.)
Could first run two miles together in February.
Became part of crazy RBF community.
Lost thirty pounds.
Ran in four countries.
Dealt with shin splints, hip pain, sore knees and fleeting groin pull.
Became a marathoner in Italy in November.
In total, ran eight races (automatic six PRs!)
Beyond proud of myself.
I couldn’t have done it on my own. Thanks guys. Now I’m really looking forward to seeing what 2009 has in store for me.
Happy Thursday, everyone.
