Low 30's, calm, no snow. Absolutely stunning. Chicagoland.
I met Britt for an early morning run. With lack of sleep from watching the UFC fights last night, I wasn't sure how I would hold up for 18+ miles.
The beauty of the lakefront, the serenity of my surroundings, and the addition of a super cool running buddy made this run one of the best of the year. The miles flew by with ease, and I couldn't believe how or why I prefer the tread to running on this beautiful lake.
Thank you Britt for prying me off my bff, the tread to join you for a spectacular run. I really couldn't think of a better way to spend the last day of 2011 enjoying perhaps the last day of beautiful, serene tranquil, Chicago before old man winter takes a firm grip on us.
-Track all of my runs, especially shoe mileage
-Continue to be smart about running to remain injury free
-Put in the work necessary to achieve some of my time goals for races.
-Run outside much much more
-Learn more Portuguese so I can say more than "Cb esta embaixo na mesa com oito cavalos e nove sanduíches."
I have other goals, but usually I just make changes in my life as I see fit- Instead of once a year. I find greater success that way.
Happy new year! Feliz ano novo! - xaar
