I was excited to go to Paint Creek Today. I thought with all the rain and 50-degree temps with low fog that the trail would be clear. Thick, chunky ice. Didn't feel like slipping through a run and was too off mentally to go to the gym. Feeling pretty bi-polar with my runnining the last 6-8 months.

Happy blogiversary to me! 5 years. I appreciate all the advice in its various forms over the years. I like Strava but I consider this my training journal/diary of existential laments.

Megan met me at a brewery down the street called Brown Iron Brewery. We don't go out much, but the food we've had here has been lackluster. This was excellent and I was pleased. We had burgers. I had some ridiculous thing topped with smoked pork, bacon, and a fried egg. Great selection of beers too. This area is growing on me. Slowly.

PM: 20 miles on the treadmill in 2:25-2:27 (I forgot the exact time)

Considerably lower mileage Thanh 2015 (about 700 miles worth) or 2013 and 2014, but I had a lot of zeros this summer. I'm doing a top 10 runs of 2016 and a brief reflection but that won't be for a day or two.

Happy New Year. Be safe and enjoy.
