Next year's theme



We've been to the Warhol exhibit!

Is the new year a time to reflect or look forward? I'm all for the forward and realise I need help- real help. Now hang on, before you get ahead of me (I can see you nodding your heads), Katy is turning 40 at the end of January and I would it to be a special time. So please send some ideas my way.

On the running front, I am contemplating 4 marathons in 2008. I would enjoy one at sub 3:20 to keep my run of Boston qualifiers going for a 4th year. The Gold Coast Marathon will be my 5th, and all in all much of the same is planned for the year.

Unlike last year, we aren't looking for new jobs, no one is just out of hospital and the medical bills shouldn't be quite as high considering the procedures, surgeries and rehabilitation of 2007. I'm thinking it is going to be a good one and wish the same for you.

A trip to Japan! How about paying for her to come over with you say for a week and you two going around seeing the sights and on the Sunday you're here we can run a race and the girls, your wife and mine can also do whatever the hell they want.

The classic win win situation ;)

..I think she'd be excited for you to throw out the underwear with holes in it.

I also think she'd really like a vacation in South Africa... say in 106 days or so? Nelson Mandela Bay? Yea, she'd definitely like that.

I think she'd like a trip back to the States. The SF Bay Area, specifically. Yes - that's it! Come home, little darlings.

Travel seems to be the go. How about travel and accommodation to Canberra for the marathon again in April, and a pantomime goose costume to run in the 5k and to cheer on the speedygeese in the marathon? And a supply of dehydrated water to supplement the official drink stations' supplies.

My imagination is definitely not fertile enough to think of anything which could be a surprise to Katy.
