Well, this year was not exactly what I had expected. It was a busy year from a sports perspective. I decided to include cycling as a new sport in 2014 to give me something I could focus on for my cross-training. I ran 16 road races, and ran/biked my first duathlon for a total of 1,535 miles of forward motion this year. The breakdown: 846 miles of running, 627 miles of cycling, and 63 miles of walking. I completed 4 Full Marathons, 5 Half Marathons, and several shorter distance races.
The race season for 2014 is quickly coming to an end. With only two races remaining -- the Space Coast Half Marathon on Nov 30th and the Santa Hustle 5K on Dec 6th - I will end 2014 with over 1,400 miles of running, walking, and biking, and completed 17 races of various distances. So, of course, my mind starts to think ahead. What challenges should I tackle in 2015? What races look fun and interesting? What role will cycling play?
Last fall, I got the notice! It was time for my 35th High School
Reunion at Loyola High School, Los Angeles. The date was set for
February 2, 2013. There was really no question regarding my attendance;
of course I was going to be there! In fact, I plan on attending every
reunion I can going forward. This was an amazing experience!
The events of December 14, 2012 were horrific and devastating, leaving 20 innocent young children and 6 caring adults
in its wake. There are plenty of articles online about the details so I
do not see the need to do so here. I am still so very sad, angry,
confused, and filled with questions. How do we respond to something like this?
