AM: rainy and freezing. We are headed to Get Air in Portland for my nephew's birthday. My hand is bandaged because my sister's dog decided he didn't like me, bit my hand, then came after me. I landed two good haymakers on the brute before Megan and family broke us up. I tried scolding him to get him away, but that method doesn't work. Punching him in the head didn't either. Few small puncture wounds and a scrape on my thumb. I could see how getting bit in the leg while running would hurt.

PM: 7.5 miles easy. A little freezing rain. Felt okay for a 4 slice lunch. Had fun jumping on the trampoline and dunking. I pulled out some classics: the Dee Brown, between the legs, double ball dunks.

Off. My blogiversary. Just didn't get out. Looked everywhere for some winter weather shoe attachments. I could only find Yaktrax, which wasn't what I wanted. That's why I just order stuff online.

PM: 11.3 miles easy. 5 with Megan.

Around 20 degrees and windy with some sleet. Enjoyed the run. Yaktrax weren't necessary, but I wanted to test them. They are just okay. I think they will be good with all the ice in Philadelphia if winter ever hits there.

PM: 10 miles easy.

A little slippery toward the end. I nailed my ankle bone with a Yaktrax. It's worse than my screw shoes for sure. #ouchies

Probably no run today. I hate to end the year on a zero but I just don't feel great mentally and I've had a bit of a cold the last three days. My hip has also been a bit unstable. I jumped to try to grab the rim at a basketball game and I had a sharp pain when I landed. It feels fine running unless the ground is unstable. It's been making itself known here and there. No pain  just unstable.

Happy New Year.
