Past and future

What is your most memorable running moment? 
Last summer I went to Vail with some running friends from Minneapolis. We did a run from the base of Vail village up to the Vail pass. It was about 13mi long and went from 8,000ft up to 10,600ft. I remember counting my steps up to 100 over and over again just trying to put one foot in front of the other and keep up. Super challenging run but it was beautiful and really fun to do with a group.
What are some of your goals for 2018?
Sub 2:30 marathon
