AM - TM Long Run on the last day of the year to get mileage for 2016, AKA New Years Eve.

34.1 miles - 5 hours.  Reset 4 times, 4 gels eaten, 3 bathroom breaks (paying price for Pizza Hut buffet)  and watched a lot of sports / SportsCenter.  "Interval" setting is great for all this treadmill running I've been doing.  Still noticing pain in the left knee.
