I'd like to say that this year has been one to remember but the truth is that when all is said and done and I'm drooling on my shoes in a nursing home it probably will rate somewhere between a cold/rainy half marathon and my first time with "Susan Charmers". Not telling which was more memorable but enough to say my High School girlfriend didn't live up to either her first or family names!
Yes, it's been a bit of a shocker. My Dad died in the first half of the year and later on that year on a trip to Australia I discovered that not everybody agreed with the old axiom: "Sons should always out live their fathers!"
In the running arena I reached and maintained a plateau that had me looking longingly at the podium like a three legged Lama would look at Mt. Everest!
Anyway let's just call it a "base building" year and I'll push on to 2011 with "expectation and hope!"
The same "expectation" I had when I finally got "Susan" alone. And the "hope" that the New Year turns out a whole lot better ;)
