It was another good year for running. I got to run in Australia, New Zealand, the Bahamas, Virgina Beach, and San Fransisco. I suffered my second running injury: 2008 plantar fascitis, 2010 patellofemoral pain syndrome AKA runner's knee. I bounced back cautiously in about a month, but not without checking in with an orthopedist. While I was hurt I did a solid month of the famed P90X workouts. I followed my plans very closely and tried a few new things like running a few "doubles," hill training and running by heart rate.

Though I do not yet have complete plan for what I'll run in 2011, but I hope to run a sub-3:30 marathon and get a sub-20:30 5K. I registered for the NYC Marathon lottery and if I get it in, that will be my goal race for 2011.
