Predictable

Well I guess I am pretty predictable. I went out and ran my little legs off this morning. I managed to finish ahead of WV, unfortunately I was the only one to chick him today so he won the bet. Luckily for me I still scored breakfast out of it. But I had to pay up on the bet I lost (to run a 3:25 full this year) so it was a wash.

1:35:35 for 13 miles today. About 7:21 pace, a hair faster than my current half marathon PR pace. I'll count it as an unofficial PR :) Good way to end the year.

1757 miles this year, about 600 more than last year. Official 5K, 4 mile, 5 mile, 5.25 mile, 50k, and 50 mile PRs this year. Not too shabby.

Hope everyone has enjoyed reflecting on 2007 and is ready to jump into 2008 with vigor. I'll be literally jumping into 2008 by taking a dip in Lake Erie. If I take the plunge it will be my second annual polar plunge. As an added bonus at my new trim weight I will even look good in my bathing suit for this one!

Happy birthday to my hubby. He turns 33 today. Hopefully he will have a nice birthday this year. We're hanging out with friends tonight and having everyone over for games tomorrow. Should be a good time.

Happy New Year Everybody!

How was the swim yesterday?? I, uh, thought it might be a bad idea to make the hour drive in a snowstorm up to the lake ((can be read as i thought it might be a bad idea to jump in the lake in a snowstorm)). At least the Plain Dealer rewarded you!

Happy New Year!!
