I finally found time to run around 6 pm so I did it on the TM while watching football. 

10 miles at a comfortable pace.

My wife and I spent last night in Vegas celebrating our 25th anniversary and didn’t get back till about 4 this afternoon. We had a Christmas party to be at at 6:00 so I squeezed in a run in between. I was hoping to get in 13 miles today but only had time for 10.

Blake was in town so we did a long run together this morning totaling 19 miles. It was great having my running buddy back even if it was only for a day. We had so much to catch up on the run just flew by. 

I did 94 miles this week, by far my highest mileage week of the year. The goal of 2500 for the year is in sight but I need 2 more solid weeks to make it.

14 more miles with over 1200 ft climbing. Considering I did 94 miles last week I felt pretty fresh and strong this morning. I guess the rest day yesterday paid off.

Then core.

14 on the trails at an even slower pace than normal, not on purpose, so I didn't have time for core work.

I didn't want to get out of bed this morning. I think this high milelage month is starting to catch up with me. I'm so close to the 2500 goal though that I can't quit now.

I still mananged to get in 16 on the trails this morning even though the plan was 20.

I'm down to double digits on my goal!

Since I probably won’t run tomorrow on Christmas, I pushed the pace a bit on my 20 miler with almost 2000 ft elevation gain averaging 8:15 per mile. 

Merry Christmas to everyone. I hope you have a wonderful day with your loved ones.

Blake was in town this morning so we did a 10 miler together. It was cold...for here.

I'm moving in on the 2500 goal. Who knows? I may hit it tomorrow.  Blake and I are planning on doing a long run together tomorrow.

20 miles with Blake this morning. We did the first half on the roads and the second half on the trails. We had planned on doing a bit more but ran out of time so now I am 0.8 miles from my annual goal. I think I’ll probably be able to finish the goal off Monday morning.

I got out on the trails this morning then finished up the year with a few strides totaling 8 miles for the day, 348 miles for the month, and 2507.2 miles for the year.  

When I started December and saw that I was going to need to average pretty much a half marathon per day I wasn’t sure if I would hit my annual goal of 2500 miles, but I did my highest mileage month ever and made it!
