Since my mom passed away two years ago on this date, 12/31 has become somewhat of a melancholy day for me. Don't get me wrong -- I know my mom is in a MUCH better place, but being human I can't help but miss her. She did so much for me -- all of which I appreciate that much more.
So I was really happy last month when I saw a 5K race that was going to be on 12/31/2013! Nice to have a different focus today!
And the training over the past month paid off -- a PB of 28:17! Running conditions for a winter race were just about perfect -- 43F, sunny, no wind!
DW and I are staying in this evening -- our best friends aren't able to be with us this year, first time in 5 years. I made a healthy lasagna on Sunday (ground turkey and LOTS of veggies), so at least we will eat well. Just did not see any venues for a NYE celebration that excited us, and besides, we partied a good deal while in Jamaica, so we're both OK with a quiet evening.
Well, SP friends, here's to you for a happy and prosperous 2014!
