Yikes!! Only 6 days till Christmas....where HAS this year gone?!? :shock:

Going to get in 5k on the TM after breakfast, then taking kids to church to participate in the nativity pageant, if the snow doesn't get too bad. Working like a fiend to finish oldest kid's Xmas blanket - I'm running out of time!!

Thank goodness we got the main components of Xmas dinner bought yesterday.

12.5k done. I was overdressed. Not a surprise. But I brought my backpack, so I easily stowed my layers.

Rest day for me - unless I get a second wind later and head down to the TM.

Spent the day on a mountain for some XC skiing yesterday. We were there for about 4.5 or 5 hours, including lunch time. Such a totally great day!

Today might be a rest day, simply because of wanting to hang with my visitng friend. I might get a little run in at some point.

About to go out to run the 16-18 I was suppose to do yesterday but I ended up watching Ironman and spinning instead. Should be interesting considering how windy it is out

25K through a few inches of mushy snow; a good leg turnover shaded me under 5:00/K.
