I had to do it, I had to treat myself. When your favorite band announces a NYE show in your favorite city one must go. To me it seemed like the perfect cap to an amazing year in my life. It was productive and positive on almost all fronts. I saw some great concerts, hiked canyons in the south west, sat front row to see Dita Von Teese, and of course I ran.
I'm thrilled to say I did 6 marathons on 2018, my overall mileage was shy of my goal, but the injuries were a bit long in the tooth. I ended 2017 with 1128 and wanted to do 1300 for this past year. I did conclude 2018 with 1141 miles. But oh Boston... I missed you so much. I missed the people, the sites and sounds, the running, and just the overall vibe of that city. I could go on and on, but I made a video to best sum it up.
Sadly I've started 2019 with a serious case of the flu, but am on the mend. It's best to get it out of the way now since my next marathon is 4 months from today and I have a strict training schedule. I'm going to make this another great year.
