We're spending a restful week in Puerto Plata before resuming winter and the marathon training. Today, finished off my year with three separate barefoot runs. The first was a morning 5k in my Vibrams, then a 7k barefoot followed by a dip in the ocean. Finally, a 2k before a late lunch. Just so I could set some resolutions before 2010 runs out, I found out I'm going to be a pace bunny for a half marathon in a little more than two months time. Tomorrow intend to start the year right with another beach side run with plenty of strides thrown in. Happy New Year!
