I didn't get a run in as I spent all morning in bed.

Drove to Toledo in the snow, which was made more exciting by the fact that Megan and I both drove cars as we are turning a car back over to her parents. I did not have a fun time driving. We should have left much sooner.

We did Christmas with her uncle and her parents. I had a not inconsiderable amount to drink.

Off.

We had breakfast and left to visit one of Megan's childhood friends. We left and drove back to Michigan. We got some pop up snow storms that reduced visbility to almost 0. I'm tired of snow already and we haven't even got that much.

PM: 5.5 miles on the treadmill in 55'

Very warm in the gym even with the window wide open next to me and the single digit air coming in. Had trouble getting out of bed again today. Felt good to get a short plod in though after two unplanned days off.

Foot it about the same. It really doesn't like flat ground, so I will continue with the straight back and forth and slight incline of the treadmill until it clears. Better able to run than not run at all.

I pulled something in my back. Today it hurt more than most pulled muscles. Figured I would rest my foot too even though it has felt fine.

Intended to run, but I spent the morning in bed as I have been doing for several days. Megan and I went to a Subaru dealer and I leased a car. It's my first new new car and my first new car since 2009.

I wanted something all-wheel drive and was able to get a Legacy for what we paid to cover a lease for her parents (which was a Chrysler 200) while her dad couldn't drive. Needless to say this is a much nicer car. I was pretty excited. Lightened my mood a bit.
