7 month review

It's been awhile.  Since I last posted I...

Fell apart at the World Mountain Running Championships.

Dropped out of a 50 mile trail race.  [Blisters led to shuffling led to falling on my face a lot].

Dropped out of the World's Toughest Mudder 24 hour challenge after 90 minutes [15 min of swimming in a shallow New Jersey pond in December is not a good idea].

Won a marathon and placed 3rd in a marathon [both in November and not in that order].

Become Active Release Technique certified [Lower, upper, and spinal].

Won 2 of 3 2012 Moutain Cup races I attended. 

Lost 1 of 3 2012 Mountain Cup races I attended.

Haven't used a snow shovel all winter.

Did a track workout.

Joined the Hammer Nutrition Team [Only gel I've ever had that didn't cause GI diahrea]

Joined the La Sportiva Team [New Vertical K is a super lightweight racer with some protection]

That's about it.  I'm hoping 2012 will include a few more Mountain Cup victoried, a spot earned at Mt Washington for the World Mountain Running team, a fast 5k or two, maybe even a track race or two. I'd like to share abit more about what I'm doing on here but we'll see how lazy I get.  I may get some pics of from the Moab 33k which tirned into a nice vacation.  I may get some pics up of the pets cause they're so pretty.  I may not.
