On New Years Day, I’ll be hitting the streets with my good friend (and Dook fan) Jeff to once again kick off the new year with a 5K. Last year we braved the sub-zero temps to get this year started right. Since every where you look, there is an end of the year re-cap, I thought I would recap the year that was my running journey, starting with last years First on the First. It was a great journey and this year looks to be even more exciting. Until next year, have a Happy NEW YEAR!
