30th on the 30th

Get out of the way, Parsenn.

Edwin is now SEVEN months old. And he's kind of a big deal.
Thank you, Parsenn.

Yessirree, today's my birthday. My 30th. The big Three-Ohh. Yikes.

I'm going to celebrate with a nice 3 miler followed by 30 minutes of running.

Goals for my first year in the 30 year old age group include:
  • 1. Breaking 3 hours in the St. Louis Marathon.
  • 2. Breaking 4 hours at the Ice Age 50k.
  • 3. Running all 31 miles of the Northern Kettle Moraine Ice Age Trail.
  • 4. Breaking 4 hours at the Glacial Trail 50K (probably the most ambitious goal).
  • 5. Finish in the Top 10 at the Fall 50.
  • 6. Run at least a mile every single day of the year.
  • 7. Read Atlas Shrugged.
  • 8. Wake up at (or before) 5:05 AM 300 of the 365 days in the year.
  • 9. Not sure what this 9th goal will be. TBD.

It's gonna be a GREAT YEAR! Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year to All!

Ooh, Happy Golden Birthday! Mine happened before you were born; I was on television and have video proof of it. You share a birthday with Julie Berg (whose blog I'll now have to visit -thanks for the reminder).

Didn't care for Atlas Shrugged.

Happy Birthday and New Year Nic. Some challenging goals for 2011. What happened your goal of 30 miles on 30th (30 minutes running - have you gone soft?)

Your goals left me feeling quite inadequate :-). Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and awesome 2011!!
