  1. OK, I calculate that you ran at least 700 miles this year...that's like almost to Port St. Lucie, you could save air fare and run! Congradulations, I love you!

  2. Congrats on a great year, both of you!

    Doug - no surprise to hear you've succumbed to alcohol and meat after all this time. Kerry is the one who got me into running ultras, she has a way of convincing people that resistance is useless!
