We are moving through the final hours of 2014. There were some spectacular moments during the year and some crazy lows. I’m sure many of you feel much the same. 2015 holds new hope! A “do over” if you will. The slate is clean and begging you to fill it with fun and excitement.
I’ll be ending 2014 running and beginning 2015 running! I know that this may be a shock to most of you…lol! My first of 30 races will start tonight at 11:45 p.m. and will finish in the New Year! Race #1! 29 more to knock down! I’m excited to start what I’ve been talking and dreaming about for some time. Tonight promises to be yet another challenge. Cold and wind will be there to greet me at the starting line. My iron will and some great running gear will get me through…for that, I have no doubts!
2015…New Years day will be race #2! The Hangover classic! What the hell…if I didn’t freeze my butt off during the night run, why not try again around noon time?! No matter how many times I lace up for a “race”, I’m always nervous and excited. Wondering what everyone else is feeling, how will I run, how many runners are here…all that and more in my head!
I’d invite you all to come out and join or say hello…but hey, it’s cold outside!! Whatever you do for the New Year’s, remember to think of your health, your family and what you can do to bring the new year in on a positive note. Enjoy a drink (but don’t drive!), see some friends, watch a movie, work on a puzzle or hey…Go Running!! I promise to keep the blogging going throughout the entire year. I also promise to keep talking about running, health, physical fitness and of course…Mobile Meals of Toledo! I look forward to making 2015 a great year for them! I want so much to make a difference and help those that are in need. I need that for myself more than anything. With the push of my wonderful wife Karla Neeley and the support of all my friends and family, I plan on getting these 30 races done and done in style!
Be safe tonight and every night. Happy New Year! I’ll see you on the road…
