Another Good Year On the Run, too!
Hiking and running are my two greatest passions. Greatest recreation passions that is! This year saw me putting more miles in on my running shoes than my hiking shoes. A reversal from 2006. I ran just shy of 900 miles in 2007. I tackled the marathon once again that year-running in the premier Eugene Marathon in Eugene, Oregon. A great race and I once again managed to run a sub-4 hour marathon. All 7 of my 26.2 mile races have been sub-4. But I long for the days when they were in the low 3 hours. Oh, to run Boston again someday!
I ran 17 races in the 2007 calendar year, from the one mile to the marathon, a couple of trail runs, and in three states and Canada.
