And…I do have a fun 2011 announcement, but have to keep it under wraps just a tad longer.

Happy 2011 to you! May your bowels behave during every long run and race this year. 

I’m grateful and honored you for stuck around with SUAR in 2010 (and hopefully 2011),

  24. Beth - Great recap - love the pictures and I feel like I was there with you the whole time. Hopefully adding support during the stressful periods. So hoping for an injury free year for you (and me)!
