    I hope everyone had a great time with family and friends over Christmas and New Years. It was definitely a needed break for me. I just wanted to check in with everyone and maybe give a little encouragement to keep up with your running.

    Hopefully you took advantage of the new year to set some goals for 2012. For me, I looked at the number of miles I had logged for 2011. It was about 400. I set a goal to at least double that this year. To complete that goal I signed up for a full marathon in April and plan to do another in October. I know if I'm committed to a race then I'll be committed to my training. What kind of goals have you set for 2012?

    If you have an idea for a group run, feel free to share with us. I know its cold and dark but throw on a headlight, a reflective vest and some running tights and let's log some miles together. I run with a smallgroup on Tues and Thurs from Starbucks in downtown Franklin starting at 5:30am. We do 5 miles on Tues and 7 on Thurs. If that works for you, let me know and I'll be sure to look out for you.

    7 it is. I'm going to do the music city half in the spring. I think trails are the best way to build muscles and endurance.

    Good man, i see you have your priorities in order. :)

    Mossy Ridge was super muddy and foggy, water beading up on my hat and eyelashes. Trail 101 runs every Friday and Sunday at 7. I'm shooting for both this week, although Friday is iffy.

    Y'all have a good week.

    Glad to hear y'all are out and about. I'm about to go out for 10 miles now. Gotta take advantage of 56 degrees. I'm in shorts!
