visualizing a new finish line

Based on a conversation I had with a coworker today, I am modifying my goal to run 31 races next year, because that is crazy...
Running 31 races would mean that I ran a race more than every other weekend.  That's a lot of weekends.  I'm an accountant, spring and fall tax seasons eliminate a lot of spring and fall weekends where I would be able to take time off to run a race.  But, I can still have the goal of bringing home 31 medals.  I will do every double race challenge I can find!  3 medals for 2 races, sounds like a plan!

Happy New Year!

Now I have to work off all that honey, like Pooh Bear.

I'm getting older, and my joints even more so, so I'm kicking my "run a lot for a lot of bling and swag" into high gear before my joints give out completely.  I'm also looking to travel a little more.  To accomplish my new year's goal, I'm looking for races: mostly 5K and 10K, but a few half-marathons that result in me leaving with awesome swag (paging Seawheeze).  I'm also looking for any suggestions, running buddies, and people to harass me when I haven't gone on a run all week because I'm too tired, which I am (the last day off I've had since the 4th of July was the weekend I was running the Seawheeze, so I'm beyond burned out).

But for tonight, I'm going to binge on season 2 of Bomb Girls and popcorn.
