Flashback Friday: Holiday Break

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!

you don't want to see my goal list for 2012. It's absurdly full of failures. Have a great holiday!

Running should never be forced, so enjoy the time in other ways. Have a great weekend (I hear it is snowing there!)

we're always here. very strong year for me. maybe your goals should be more to finish something you've not done than setting time goals.

cheers! i'm far less of a capable drinker but i did hold my own with eight of the twelve taps of christmas in one go. i felt like i shouldn't ought of done that, the next day, though...

I didn't even need to hover over the linked "Who". I knew it was me.
