I recorded my last run of 2009 shortly after 6 this morning, a 4¼-mile jaunt along Grandview Avenue in 15-degree weather. Just Judd Ott and me on the course; we didn't see any other runners out this morning.
Anyway, I completed the year with 640.2 miles. I covered 759 miles in 2008 and 742 in 2007. Considering that I missed virtually all of May, July and August 2009 with knee and back issues, the total is OK.
However, also considering that one of my New Year's Resolutions was to have a good year of competition, it was a disappointing season.
So, I will dust off my resolution and hope for a better season in competition -- perhaps including races longer than the 5K-5 miles I usually enter.
Happy New Year!
