Eh… enough of that.
So, the silly season is upon us once more and I cringe at the very thought of it. Call me a Grinch if you’d like but I really don’t like Christmas carols, the lights, the creepy inflatable… things… in everyone’s front yards (save mine!). Yes, they’re creepy. I swear that they watch me as I run by on my nightly runs. It’s not enough that I have to run in the cold and snow, but now I have to worry that one night I’m going look behind me to see some inflatable Santa running after me with a butcher knife.
“Ho-Ho-Ho! Come back here! You’ve been a very naughty boy!”
Last January, I set a goal of running 1000 miles in 2013. And for the first couple of months I was on track to reach that goal… but… it was not to be. In reality, it was an unrealistic goal for my fitness level. Right now my Garmin says that I’ve run 458.7 miles this year, so I figure that if I can pound out 42 more miles in the next 5 weeks, I’ll end with just about 500 miles, which isn’t too bad in my estimation. So, I think that my goal for next year will be to sweeten that goal by 100 miles for 2014. That’s a more achievable goal in my estimation.
BB’s doing well. She’s healthy and happy, but there are ice storms in Arkansas today so I’m a bit worried that she’s staying warm and all. I’ve told her to go buy whatever she needs to stay warm, and I hope she does.Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone, and a Happy Hanukah to my Jewish friends out there.
