Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

So Long, Hawaii!

Back to reality!  It's a bittersweet feeling.  While I already miss the fabulous ocean views and the no schedule days, I am glad to be back running regular routes with my running buddies.

I've also come up with more specific goals for 2012.  It's all about the numbers this year!  The key will be keeping track really well.  Wish me luck!

Here's to a fast & fun 2012!


  1. Julie,
    I like your goals. We should plan to do an International Marathon together this year. Berlin is in Sept but there are marathons in Germany, France, Italy, and Turkey in Oct. The challenge for me is training through 110 deg summers in Bahrain.

  2. Thanks, Jason! That would be fun! Dan is moving to Spain in August. Stay cool!

  3. Love it! Think the sleep goal will make all the others achievable. And I KNOW you are up to the CHALLENGE!
