For the Millennium series this year, it included a few opportunities I had never raced before…   Shamrock HalfMarathon, falling the day before Shamrock Shuffle and Manchester Half Marathon, falling the day after a new race on SNHU, Penmen 5K on Veteran’s Day weekend.

It turned out that Veteran’s Day weekend was the beginning of “horticultural winter” brrrrr cold, quick transition of dropping temperatures. I was extremely, ridiculously lucky in 2017. I’m not sure how my body is keeping going, but I am extremely grateful does and thankful for the awesome friends, family, teammates, co-workers who inspire me so much.
