Three Thanks Thursday

At the end of a fantastic running year I have to say thanks…

1.) I had a wonderful running year. I reached my goal of 3000km (1864 miles) a while back and then set a new goal of 2010 miles for 2010 for all the non-metric blogging runners out there. I reached that this morning and I’m now on 3236.1km (2010.9 miles). I will finish 2010 on 3248.3km (2018.5 miles). I’ve had some fantastic running adventures while running all theses kilometers during 2010. For this I say thank you!

2.) I am really grateful that I achieved the distances above and remained injury free. This is wonderful and I say thank you!

3.) I made some wonderful friends via this blog during the past year! To everyone that follow and read my blog I say thank you!

I wish you all a very happy and prosperous 2011!
