8.15 miles and two sore feet later, I accomplished one of my New Year's goals (a first!) by running and completing the Great Aloha Run.  My finishing time was 1:19:20.  Can you believe it?  I finished under my intended goal by a whole ten minutes!  This feat has gotten me pumping to do more races.  I'm hoping to do a half marathon by next December.  Maybe one day I'll be able to do a full marathon.  Ha, that will be the day.  Now it's time to prop my feet up and relax!
