Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Festivus, Boxing Day, and New Year! As you spend time with your family & friends, don't forget those around you that are less fortunate. Please consider giving to your favorite charity (trail runners might think about land conservation funds or wildlife preservation groups), volunteering at a race, and joining your local non-profit running club.

And as you are inside enjoying Boxing Day, don't forget to root for my favorite football team...GO CHELSEA! If you enjoy running, real futbol has much more of that than American "throwball." Join the rest of the world and tune into some soccer this weekend. Woops, time to get off my soapbox...enjoy the holidays and start planning your 2009 race calendar. Might I suggest a fine little trail race in central Illinois on March 28, 2009?

Glad to see you are back Ian...at least back reading my blog! Hope you have recovered from your surgery enough to get back to some walking. I think 2009 is going to be your year (but not Manchester United's year).

Chris I click on your blog everyday my friend.

I restart running on Christmas Day although I did cheat when hiking on my favourite local running trail just recently and started running oops (just a habit) until I remembered but it felt so good and no issues. I am looking forward to 2009 with big plans.

EPL is going to be much closer this year, good thing actually. Of course United just won the Club World Cup (still a Mickey Mouse tourney!!)
