2016 Top 5 Holiday Runs & Other Highlights from the Season

Wow!  It's hard to believe another Christmas season is in the books.  Sitting on the couch after our last holiday gathering on New Years Day I am ready to get back into my routine.  Tomorrow starts a 12 week winter bike intensive training plan but before that starts here are my top 5 running events this holiday season along with some other highlights.

Moving on to 2017.

First up is a 12 week cycling intensive training plan.  I am not training for any specific triathlon but wanted to build an early cycling base for summer bike trips.  The only race I have signed up for is the Perfect 10 Miler in March.

Cheers to peace, joy and much love in 2017.
