Some of you fools have still been running. Yes, I've noticed your blog posts. Don't you worry about your accomplishments going unnoticed. I've cursed each and every one of you for your diligence and commitment to running, along with a handful of random strangers I've seen outside enjoying themselves.
It's not that I don't miss running, but it's not a very strong sense of longing. At least, not so much that I've considered donning my running apparel for a few miles. Instead, this has been a nice, little break in the action. And it very well might last until the end of the year.
There are a pair of running shoes on my Christmas wishlist, and getting those might tempt me to try them on for a run before the year is out, but don't get your hopes up. You won't hear it about until after the New Year regardless of what happens.
It seems like this should be some sort of year-in-review post, but what's to review? My first trail race, my first barefoot race and a heap of failures, missed goals and missed revised goals. Who wants to read that? I certainly don't want to write about it. Let's just skip to the end.
This is the holiday season. Spend it with family and friends. Be thankful for what you have. No matter which holiday you celebrate, remember we're all in this together. Have a safe and happy New Year. We'll see you in 2013.
Happy Hour is nearly upon us, teammates! Have a finely brewed weekend. Run well and drink well. Cheers!
