Auld Lang Syne!

Dang! it's the end of the year already and I haven't done everything I set out to do.  I wonder if I'm alone.

I've been away from posting for a bit taking care of a family member but I want to just check in one last time this year.

Rather than review the year and posts, and races--I only ran three races--I want to just Thank_you_mug thank all of the wonderful BRFs I've met this year. Reading your posts and connecting directly and indirectly related to running has been one of the highlights of my running life. Running is so much more enjoyable when we can share details of runs and races, encourage each other, complain, and have some laughs. I've enjoyed getting to know hundreds of you and my reading list just keeps growing.

So if you'll permit me, I just want to shout out to some of my favorite people who just also happen to be runners and bloggers.  I'm intentionally not commenting on each of your blogs.  You know you're wonderful, funny, interesting, helpful, and friendly.  If I missed you, please grab Nancy's Club and hit me.

I want to also thank a few others who don't blog, especially, Amy’s Mom and my biggest fan, Laura.  They are devoted readers and bedrocks of support

By the way, I didn't buy or bake anything for any of you, but I have a gift for each of you:  I hereby declare that nobody got older or heavier in 2007!

May all of you have a wonderful New Year's Eve, and let's make 2008 a great year together!

Finally, there is not a better blogging partner or friend than Amy. She embodies the true spirit of running--fitness, fun, and a deep sense of friendship.  I'm blessed and grateful to join her on this blog.

Happy New Year, Tom. Thanks for all you and Amy do for us with the Lounge. We appreciate the thoughts and shout-outs.

By the way, are you still thinking about running Olathe in March? I was going to do the full as my first full, but December kicked my toosh, and things are up in the air so I'll be doing the half for sure if I'm able.

Hope everything's alright with your family.

Marcy

HAPPY NEW YEAR TOM!!!! You guys rock!!! ;D ;D Here's to an awesome 2008!

Lisa

Happy new year to you, too, Tom. May 2008 be our best year ever!!!

Nat

Thanks for the shout out. :)

Happy New Year to you as well. I wish you many "hell yeah!" runs, perfect weather conditions, body glide the right places. I said this to Amy as well, put thank you for all your work on the lounge, it's a great resource.

Thanks again Tom for all you and Amy have done to building a new community for us runners. Where else can we talk about running in near 0 wind chill and not get threats of being put in the loony bin? I am looking forward to a new year of running and new accomplishments and reading about everyone else's too.
