12K of Christmas Virtual Race Recap

What better way to ring in the New Year than by running? My running buddy, Bobbie, came across a virtual race at the blog Long Legs on the Loose. It was called 12K of Christmas. We had between Christmas and New Year's Day to complete 7.46 miles. We didn't have to do it in one sitting, but we decided to do it that way. Some people took to the treadmill, eliptical, etc. We took to the road. Right now in Danville, Kentucky, it is 58 degrees outside. This means perfect running weather. We started our 7.46 at the McDowell Wellness Center, ran all the way up Main Street, over to Lexington Avenue, a lap around the Bellevue Cemetery and back to the Wellness Center the way we came. It was an absolutely beautiful morning for a run, minus the fact that the wind seemed to be blowing 80 miles an hour! That kind of hindered us a little. But, we had fun and it was worth it! Not to mention, our fabulous costumes!

What can I say happened in 2010 that I am extremely thankful for??? Well, my husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary and I have found a great friend in a running buddy that was there for a long time, I just never knew it. We had run into each other at several local races, but didn't start running together until this past June. I thank God everyday for her. Sometimes being able to hit the pavement with Bobbie can be my sanity. Not to mention the fact that our husbands get along GREAT! They get more excited about double dates than we do! :)

Have a very happy new year everyone! 2011 goals to come! There are lots of them!
