  1. What a fun year you had! I have yet to try cross-country skiing. Every year I say I’m gonna do it! Sorry about that 50K. I ran a 50K when I shouldn’t have and put myself out of racing most of the rest of the year. Congrats on DC and Boston Marathons! I’ll be running Boston in 2013 and hope the heat doesn’t repeat. Finally, great job on listening to your body and NOT doing something. I’m still learning how to do this. Good luck in 2013!

  2. What a great year for you! Congrats on your first marathon, and the half pr. We learned to xc ski when living in upstate NY- it was such a great way to survive and enjoy the winter!
