Okay, so I got you all something . ..
For Steph I thought long and shopped hard but in the end the choice was easy: brand spanking new fancy knees. Now, don't go getting all fast and dropping me. I would be so sad if you didn't train with me.
For Doug: Well, duh. Freestyle! bwhahahahaha!
For Wes--my brother in law: a Christmas bike jersey and first place at the Roswell Nally Criterion.
For Wes: A PR at Disney and a smooth road to the Ironman!
For Dee Dee: marathon success at Disney.
For Joe Reger: First place age group in all your triathlons this season.
For Danielle: a subscription to the Journal of Rare and Fatal Diseases. Just kidding. Marathon success at Ga ING and Ironman triumph.
For Bruce: a 3:30 marathon at Boston.
For Charlie: a sub 3 hour marathon at Boston 09! I'll be behind you chasing a 3:15 (assuming I ever get to 3:30;)
For Anne: Triathlon and Peachtree success this summer.
For Jason: Come back success and to see you at more races!
For Mike at the gym: endurance so you can join me for beers at the Park Tavern after the Peachtree.
And for my peeps at the Marietta Big Peach:
Joe: To see you at Ga ING running that 2:20 marathon.
Kate: Sub 2:50 at Ga ING and first GA woman. You'll get it this year. And to kick my ass not only in the run but in the bike and swim at all the tri's this summer.
Steve: Gosh, just some time off so you can run and train so I can kick your ass properly. Wink.
Javi: a PR at Houston.
Karen: a PR at Callaway Gardens.
And to everyone else Pr's and an injury free 2009. Merry Christmas! I appreciate all the support/advice and love that you give me.
Oh yeah, and I am feeling better. 4 miles yesterday and 7 today. Felt wonderful! Getting there.
