I promised myself before I wrote this out that it would not be a long post. Really so much has happened since the end of last season and though this year hasn't even taken off yet. I have no clue as to where it's going to end up or where me and my family will end up for that matter. An uncertain road lies ahead. I know it's all for a reason. The only things I am certain of are this. 1. I love my family and they mean more to me than anything in the world. That's the one team or race I can't quit. Every other thing can be put on hold. 2. Running is going well. I've changed some things around and came up with a new routine that has me running faster than I've been running in the past few years. I'm very positive that with what I learned last season that this season will be one more step towards achieving my goals.
As far as the family goes. There doing great Tristan is good and bugs me everyday about going to the mountains so he can climb one. He might soon get his wish... Isabel is great. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect baby. She's already figured out how to get her dad to do anything she wants. Jessica has recovered fine and is ready to get out there and do something.
Hopefully in a few more days I might be able to shed some light on all the stuff I've hinted at but right now its too early to put my foot in my mouth. The racing schedule looks like this. Though I wouldn't put any bets as to whether I'll actually be toeing the starting line. It all has a lot to do with the outcome of the next few days.
2009 schedule (very tentative)
Rock Creek 10km
3 Days of Syllamo. Have to make it right after last years DNF.

Like I said all very subject to change. I hope everyone is doing well and their getting geared up for an exciting 2009 season. Later.
