Best of the Year
I would have to say that my favorite race of the year would have to be the Xterra Point Mugu Trail Run. It was a tough and beautiful course. It also was my first race after my pleurisy and was the longest distance race I had ever done. So it meant a lot to me.

Worst of the Year
Would have to be my pleurisy injury. My running had been going really great up until then. The pain in my lungs from the pleurisy was intense and felt like it never was going to end. During the entire recovery period I had worries that my lungs would not be the same and my running would not be the same. It definitely was a tough injury to overcome physically and mentally.

I have a couple goals for the new year and new experiences planned.
Run 700 miles for the year.
My first Half Marathon.
My first Triathlon.
Run 1000 miles for the year.
My first Full Marathon.
I want to thank my Family for enduring the boredom of waiting around at races to support me and putting up with my expensive, time consuming hobby. I have the best Family ever!
