Things to Accomplish in 2008

I recently read about another writer's planned athletic endeavors for the year. I found it quite comforting to know that there are others as obsessive-compulsive as I am about what they want to accomplish in any given period. Of course, I have to take you back several months to get you caught up on this "race season." It goes back even further than the beginning of 2008, and spans a bit longer than one traditional "race season", but nonetheless it is what I had and do have planned. And, I have decided to include some things that are not "race" related, but are nonetheless very important to why I do what I do ... you'll see. I am going to try to update the list when necessary. Just bear with me while I figure out the best way to do that. ;-)
