HAPPY BIRTHDAY RUNDANGEROUSLY!! AUGUST 21
Today, August 21, is RunDangerously's 46th birthday(no new age group, unfortunately, and the age on paper is just a number!!) ---hope you have a good birthday! and fit in you like to do -run, drink beer, relax...sushi or cheeseburger?? In any case, as I write this, it's a gorgeous day -- a perfect August day (I will be spending it packing for my college-bound teenager) --RunDangerously ,Frank, has had a prolific and impressive year of running!! Some highlights were - winning your age group in the Broadway Ultra Society series (and still winning);
-running VT 50 miler the weekend after the Staten Island 6 hour race (after traveling?? to Asia)!! Then in Oct. running the L.I. 6 hour b-day run!
-running NYC marathon, Stone Cat marathon, and JFK 50 miler in successive weekends!!
-running December 5Ks and hot chocolate 15K with Don and Rob!
-traveling to India (Feb 2008?), and coming home with the flu, and still managing to start to train for Umstead (even though you were sick for the Albany marathon!!), and getting your endurance up with Wurtsboro 30K, St Patrick's 10K AND Caumsett park 50K;
-running 37 mile race in March, and finishing 78 miles in Umstead, adding the Umstead 50 miler to your 50 states list!!!
-in May, running Brooklyn 1/2, followed by Greenbelt 50K followed by Pineland Farms 50 miler! Followed by Nipmuck trail marathon!
-in late June and July, racing the Norwalk 5 miler, the PCC 8 miler, followed by VT endurance run!!
-to top off July, you ran 60 miles!!! at the Wakefield 24 hour run, and then 53 miles?? at the 12 hour run...
-and as a marathon maniac, up to 70 career marathons --almost surpassing me:)
those are just the highlights I remember!! So many more running successes to you in your 46th year!!! But most of all have fun, and I still think you should write a book about Running Dangerously...
