|Fall Photo Run on Trail #2 at Spring Mill on November 6|
I chose to eliminate every mileage/pace goal and go with just one aim: Run Happy. That I did. I had so, so, so many fun runs with friends this year. The first ones that come to mind are Eric's Carmel Marathon, Mitch's Mini, the flood run with Becky and Larry, the Lawrence County Torch Relay, PRing at the Tecumseh Half Marathon, PRing at the Monumental Half Marathon, my solo Fall Photo Run, the Give Thanks 4 with Jocelyn, and the Christmas Lights Run with Wendy. There were certainly some really bright running spots in 2018.
