Off today.  Had a good time last night with Tiff's family at one of her sister's houses for New Year's Eve.  Made it until the ball dropped with one of her brothers (last 2 standing!) and then promptly went to try and help console my crying 8 month old in the next room.  It was a rough night and next day after that.

PM - lunch run on the TM - 4mi. AT (9mph).  6:40 felt nice and easy aerobically.   Some joker hopped on the TM next to me and had no qualms about doing his stretching techniques while walking on TM.  I would have been alright with it too if he hadn't bumped me on the head a couple of times.  6mi. total - 42:22.

AM - Long Run in the park.  Ran solo for about an hour before everybody got there - hits some trails.  About and hour and a half with the group all on roads.  Trails were mudfest and I caught my turf toe on another root and returned the pain and suffering from 2 weeks ago, which was fun.  45-50 degrees this morning also.

17.6 total - 2:25:5x.  Ate 2 gels and water.

AM Race in Brown Co. State Park.  Was supposed to be on trail, but, the ridiculous mountain bike community raised such a stink about trail running on "mountain bike" trails, that it was moved to a different course on the road.  70% of mountain bikers and 90% of facebook chatter came from 200lb + guys who get on those trails there and ride on the "fat tires".  With all the rain and a thaw/freeze they thought 100 or so runners would cause too much damage to the trails on a cold morning.  Funny that I saw about 20 cars with bike racks parked at the trail head of those same trails this morning...

Anyway - it was about 25 degrees and the road was icy in spots and and an absolute skating rink at the top of the climb.  Warmed up with Danny Fisher and Mr. Wagner on the hill of the couse and discoverd all the fun waiting for us.  The race was an out (up) and back (down).  Climb for 2.6 miles, skating rink at the top of the climb/turn around (where about 50 slipped and fell, including me), and 2.6 miles back down.  Managed about 6:20ish average pace, 5:30is for last 2 miles  on the downhill portion.  

33:18 for 5.19 miles and 8th place.  Awesome soup, fire, and Ugo bars at the finish.

AM run over to Tim's house to hitch a ride to Brown Co. Park.  Got to ride in his fully electric Tesla. Wow! On board nav and partially autonomous steering. 0-60 in a very smooth 4 sec., auto breaking, proximity alerts, etc. Amazing.

10 miles trails with some good climbing in the park. 1:24:55.

Ride back to Tim's, and jogged home. Approaching 45 degrees and sunny. Good to see the sun again.
