Friday was one of those days where you're just happy to get in any kind of run. I woke up to about 4-5 inches of fresh snow. Luckily I had the day off so I didn't have to worry about the commute. Amy and I took the girls to the Children's museum in the morning and had a great time. In the afternoon Kinsey and I went sliding in our back yard and made a snowman. It was a great day with the fresh packy snow and warm (30-32 degrees) temps. We must have been outside for 2 hours. If I had sat down after putting the girls to sleep I probably would never have gotten my run in. Instead I headed right to the treadmill and ran for 8 miles.

Saturday I wanted to get in a longer run, but I really didn't have anything in mind when I headed out the door. I had thoughts of going 10 miles in the morning then another 5 or so at night. But then I figured, even though we don't have anything planned for New Year's Eve, there's no way I'm going to want to hop on the treadmill this evening. Therefore, I decided to go a little longer. I got in 13 miles, which gave me an even 80 miles for the week. I've had 7-day stretches lately have been more than 80 miles, however none of them have ended on Saturday, the end of my week.

I'll save my December and 2006 recap for another post.

Happy New Year!!!

Thanks Susan. Happy new year to you too. Nice to see you survived what I'm sure was a wild night of partying.
