I haven't felt like blogging much, so I'm grateful for Clara for the nudge. I've been tagged, so hopefully this will keep me from falling off the blogosphere.
1. What was your 2008 running highlight and running low?
Gosh...every race is a highlight. The Akron Road Runner Marathon and the Buckeye 50K summer edition are highlights. I didn't run many short races but the Race for the Parks 4 miler was a low for me. I aggravated my plantar fasciitis and felt like crap. Running fast is so painful for me, even though I managed to place first in my age group...somehow. There was much emotional background noise to this race as well.
2. What race are you secretly planning on doing (or contemplating) for 2009 but haven't made it known to the public....until now.
I think I'd like to run the Cleveland Marathon again. I have a yearning to try my marathon abilities on fast flat course again. It's been a few years since I've run Cleveland.
3.Where would you like create and direct an ultra that (to your knowledge) none exists?
How about a naked ultra in San Diego?
4. What is your "primary" race for 2009? The Akron Road Runner, of course. I'm a creature of habit..
5. What is the most exciting thing about your upcoming race schedule?
Wondering if my running shoes will hold up..
6.List your planned races for 2009
Buckeye 50K winter edition, Cleveland Marathon, Buckeye Summer 50K, and the Akron Road Runner Marathon.
