So today is 17 March 2010...in two days, I will have been here in Iraq for two years and three months...It is time to go. I am heading home at the end of this month and I am very excited about it!! It has been a long, sometimes bumpy road, but i managed and believe I ended up on top. After thousands of miles on the roads of Anaconda/Joint Base Balad, these legs will be making their debut run on 1 May at the University of Illinois Half Marathon. I have a large group of friends running various races down there so it is going to be a blast!! I have been mainly training on an elite 5k program that has me running some good distance and great track workouts. I believe I will be able to bang out a good half off of this program.
There is plenty to say, but I am going to cut it short. I won't be going straight home, going to spend some time in Germany. Should be a great time!!
Hope all is well, and look for many more post to come via home baby!!!!
