“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

A Year End Bonus

I don't know that I ever came out at the beginning of the year and announced that it was going to be "The Year of Bonus Bling," it was just something that happened.  And as the year progressed, my friend Megan (remember Megan? Have you checked out her awesome blog yet?) and I just pronounced that it was.  And boy was it.  I'm afraid I'm going to be terribly cliche here and use the phrase where has the time gone?  But really, where did this year go?  

I'm running Rock'n'Roll San Antonio this weekend, and it is my last scheduled race of the year.  It's also the perfect endcap to the "Year of Bonus Bling" since it will earn me my last bonus medal of the year.  I've got great plans to do an awesome post at the end of the year with a quick recap and pictures of all the Bonus Bling, but that will have to wait for that last medal to arrive in my mailbox...(they say 6-8 weeks - I hope it's faster).

I haven't decided what my race "goal" for next year will be yet, or if I will even have one, but I'm suddenly feeling very nostalgic about this one as it's reaching it's conclusion.
