Merry Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas. 
Let your heart be light. 
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight

I am still alive.  Admit it.  You’ve missed me.  Do not worry.  I have been busy.  The kids have been out of school, so I’ve been slumming it a little bit in the morning.  Add in a slow period at work, and things have just been kind of dog lazy.  I could get used to that.

I’ve still been trying to run three times a week, and I have been very successful.  I am now up to three miles in my Vibrams!  but only once a week.  I’m going to try and expand that out to four miles before adding a second Vibram’s run.  I can certainly tell the difference between running 3 miles in my Vibrams and running 3 miles in my K-swiss.  All the little muscles in the lower half of my legs are just bitchin, but that is the point, right?   Strengthen those muscles without hurting myself.  So far so good.

After work today, I am off for 10 whole days.  Some of that time might include a trip home to see my our families for New Years.  We’re trying to figure something out with the dogs.  From Christmas Eve till at least Wednesday, I am off with nothing but time on my hands.  I’m looking forward to it.

I’ve been sitting here at work planning out my triathlon season for next year.  Right now, I’m looking at 6 or 7 races, depending on whether or not my pals come into town to do the Chickamauga Marathon in November.  I’m running the Georgia Half Marathon again this year, with Dee Dee.  Then, I’m going to hit up the West Point Oly at the end of April.  They moved it this year from June.  No more sweltering heat runs!  Woot!  After that, it’s back to Callaway for my sixth or seventh time (who’s counting?).  July has another trip to the Blue Mountains for Tri the Mountains.  August was a bit perplexing, but I decided on the Fall Creek Falls Olympic again.  It was a fun race, and I’d love to head back north to Tennessee.  Finally, I’m going to wrap up my season with a half, and the target is Augusta 70.3.  I have a bone to pick with that one.

Tie all that in together with Dee Dee’s plans, and it looks to be a busy year.

While all that is fine and dandy, tis the season…  to eat, drink, make merry, and bring joy and happiness into the lives of those you love.  Thank you all for another wonderful year.  I wish you and your family a safe, happy, and wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hope you had a great Christmas, Wes!! Enjoy the time off...believe me, it's good...I had to work all week, plus cover for the folks gone...glad YOU had it off!

I have Chicamunga penciled in...waiting to see how Darrell's ankles/hips behave this spring. Have a possible schedule conflict that weekend too but a lot of time to try to resolve that one.

Happy New Year too!!
