Last Long Run of the Year

Today is December 30th. Only one more day of 2007. My plan had been for a long run on the 31st, last one of the year on the last day of the year, but I have heard the weather might be more favorable today so I ran it today instead. I did 14 miles. Longest I've done in a few weeks now, but was at a 9:08 pace overall, not bad, and the miles were over fairly hilly places. Nothing flat that's for sure. Weather was fairly warm, all things considered (ie it's December in Minnesota), it rained a bit off and on, not too much though, so didn't make me any colder. I was up a bit late and didn't sleep real well last night, and am working tonight. Mom and dad were up and another friend crashed at my place last night, so I made breakfast for all and got running around noon after mom and dad took off for my aunt and uncle's for their new years eve. Still not 100% sure what I have going on tomorrow, but I work tonight from 6:30-11:30, home to relax and unwind, and get a good nights sleep, then up tomorrow for a 4 miler, possibly going to see The Good Shepherd, then going out for drinks...The run tomorrow will put my mileage at 2032 for the year. 2000 miles plus my age, seems like a good note to go out on. I will also run, even if it's only a mile, on New Years day, no matter how badly I feel from a night of indulgence tomorrow. The idea of running out and running in the new year sounds nice, even if I can't do my midnight run into the new year.

I don't know about that midnight run - in recent years I can't even stay awake for New Years, let alone run :-)

That's very nice mileage on the year! Good for you.
