I watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation for the first time (this week) last night. I had to post something about it.
On the running front, I can't say I've been putting in the miles. I did run on Saturday night after reading Doug's post. I took Parsenn out on a short jog (about a mile) and I loved it. It's crazy at the moment, with Christmas this weekend, commitments every night, and limited access to safe running conditions, considering the snow. I will be running 20 miles with my buddy Jon this weekend, however, so lets just hope I survive that. Then next weekend is my "27 on my 27th," so I guess I can call the last two weeks a taper? Generally, you have to be running hard before tapering, but as I said in a recent post...mundane details.
