After a night of revelry with friends (a family friendly party we've gone to for years which gets easier each year the kids get older to the point I barely see mine), we packed up nearly all of the indoor Christmas decorations (since the outdoor ones are covered in snow). I did a load of laundry and told myself I'd get out for Kiley's (at Daily Vitamin F) New Year's Virtual 5K as soon as the dryer buzzer sounded. I finished dressing in my layers to deal with the 25° temps right as it buzzed and headed out the door.
I jogged out into the street with a bright orange sweatshirt to be as visible as possible since the sidewalks are covered in snow/ice. Thankfully, there wasn't much traffic and the streets were plenty clear. I tried to run more than walk and made it down to Modern Litho (1.6 miles away) in 17:something. Headed back, but walked more than I had intended and fought my way up the hill. My legs were tired (and somewhat sore) from my weekend workouts, but it took 38:11 for the 3.2 miles total. Still not an awful pace (for me).

Time to start anew:
Swimming = 0 yds
Biking = 0 miles
Running = 3.2 miles
Still thinking about my goals, race calendar, etc for 2013. Post to come after I finish my 2012 wrapup.
