After reading an article in Runner's World soemthing about What to next in your running life... The article focused on what do do once you have met personal goals. I thought about getting involved and working with others to run their FIRST half marathon. I sent out flyers, put an article in The Guardian (Fort Polk's local paper), and sent out information on Facebook. After just a few short weeks, I was e-mailing over 70 people. I was so overwhelmed with the numbers of people. Because of this effort, I met some wonderful new friends (Lee, Heidi, and Rosalyn). Several of which have helped me through the last 2 horrible months. I did help 2 people run their first Half Marthon and introduced several people to new running partners. All in all, it was one of the better things that I did in 2011.
Hoping that 2012 is a good year. I know that it shouldn't be worse that 2011.
I have some family vacations planned, of course some runs (already registered), and 2 cruises with my in-laws. I will try to be a better blogger.

Steve was loved by so many.
I miss him..
