Moving On!!!

Well here I am in Knoxville after four days of "smorgasbording" and very little running. But it was a great Christmas! All the family had a great time together, it was a joy to see my kids open up their presents, and I got those trail shoes I wanted!

I will be here in Knoxville until Friday and have done some research to see if there are some good trails to explore close by. I have found the IJAMS Nature Center which has several miles of trails and a call to the center informed me that they welcome runners out to the trails.

I must admit I am a little nervous because I don't know just how hilly these trails are and I have slipped in my mileage the last two weeks. Knoxville is of Everest proportions compared to Northeast Mississippi so we will have to see if the quads are really up to it. Of course, I noticed one of the trails parallels the Tennessee river with a boardwalk so hopefully it won't be too bad. Nevertheless, my new trail shoes beckon and I must heed their call!

I trust anyone reading this had a wonderful Christmas holiday and I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year! Soon I will post my goals for the new year - an admission to the entire world of the weight loss and running I hope to accomplish in the new year! Heck, I may even throw in some of my own personal goals as well. Until then....
