2008 Races and a Christmas Dinner Tribute

Certified races finished by Sweet Pea and Sunshine in 2008:

200 meter... 3 races
400 meter... 1 race
1 mile... 2 races
5K... 6 races
8K... 1 race
10K... 3 races
10 mile... 2 races
Half marathon... 3 races
Marathon... 2 races

Total: 23 certified races ... plus other uncertified races

One age group award in a marathon
I have now advanced to the highest age group, but I'm not dead yet!

.....................................

In celebration of a Christmas dinner....
... That's a gluten-free meringue pie crust... (like my mom used to make.)

Imagine a Christmas dinner... organic food, seasoned and cooked to perfection...
Grilled chicken breast, whole carrots, cauliflower, fruit salad... and the dessert pictured above.

Certainly a healthy feast for everyone at the table...
Considering recent evidence that pesticides do cause cancer...

A magnificent gift to us... and I didn't have to cook it!

Thank you Dear Ones!!

Oldest age group!!? You are much to active and young at heart to let that slow you down much. :-) Happy New Year! I hope 2009 brings good things to you and your family.

Hi Sunshine! I apologize for being invisible for so long. It is the end of the year and I have been so busy. I apologize. I'll get back to blogging soon. Right now I am signed up for a 10K run and a half-marathon in May here in Denver. I'm working on my speed as I still want to best an hour on the 10K. I ran a 10K the other day @ 59:37 so I might be OK for it by May.

Thanks for the comment! I really, really do appreciate it!

That does sound like a good meal! The pie looks good. Impressive list of races run (and an AG), I'm honored to say that I ran in one of them myself (Flying Pig, my 2008 fave). Thanks for the info on b/p, my reading at the stress-free locale of the back of Safeway fell to 167/97.

Although from different places, but this perception is consistent, which is relatively rare point!
