My Runner of the Year

Last night I had the honor of going to the 2nd annual USATF-MN awards banquet. I was there on a few fronts. One was to pick up the great team awards our TC Running team won in last years team circuit. We got 1st Open Men, 1st Masters Men, 1st Grandmaster Men, and 2nd Open Women. I was very proud of my team and all my teammates. My other reason to be there was because my wife Sonya won Female Masters runner of the year !! I was so so proud of her. Lot's of her teammates and friends came out to Cheer which was nice. After the awards a few of us even went out for some drinks and a near by Champs. It was a good night in all.

Training has continued to roll along. One more solid week with a good long run today on the snowshoe trails at Lebanon Hills park and a super workout at the Dome on Thursday night. Fill out the rest of the week with some solid runs and I was a happy camper today. Plus hell team USA hockey beat Canada tonight to top it off. Now I just need to finish off the month in style !!!

**This looks like a fun race. Maybe someday ?

Very cool for Sonya! And very well deserved - AND she is way too humble - we ran for like 90 minutes yesterday and she never mentioned it :)

That race does look like fun - some nice climbing.
