RUN : 91:00MIN./ TREADMILL / 4R:1W / 5.75 MILES

The last workout of the year was a mirror image of how the year went. It was good but not what I had expected. I set out too run 2:00hr on the tredmill but I felt completely spent at 90 min. I knew it would be tough since being sick and all the holiday stress. I did try it and gave it all that I could.

Looking back on 2006, I did my first duathlon and completed 3 altogether. I finished in 1st place in 1. I went to San Francisco and ran a half that crossed the Golden Gate with the bonus of meeting 21st Century mom. Late summer my motivation collapsed as so did other things in my life. I ran the USAF half in September on which weekend my entire family celbrated my 50th b-day.

The last quarter of the year was devasting. My father-in-law was diagnosed with cancer on October 13th. This monster disease consumed him and he passed the Friday after Thanksgiving. Our life will be forever changed. My mother in law and hubby have gone through a very tough time but I feel in 2007 that we will find the healing to go on.

Waddling out of 2006............

May you waddle in good health and with strength. I'm so sorry your family lost your father in law and I wish them all solace in the year to come.

You will find the healing. Life is hard. Community of like minded people is central.

Keep on in, day out. You'll be there.
