Knowing just where you are going.
Yes, it's the holidays. So? No excuse. I need an early New Year's resolution. I want a change. With so much uncertainty in the world there's (excuse the reference) I am the one thing in life I can control.
Distance: 5 miles
Avg. Pace: 8:19
For the record, I am sick and tired of people treating the year "2016" like it's some kind of mummy's curse of a year because people keep dying, like Alan Thicke or Bernard Fox. I can't tell if people are being serious or actually superstitious, but people fucking die, every single day. Some of them are innocent nobodies and not Z-list celebrities you haven't even thought of in decades.
No, the year 2016 sucks because that's when my father died. Alan Thicke can suck a dick and die twice for all I care.
Route: Hocking River Bike Path
Cool by the river, not an unpleasant breeze. Just wet, no snow, very few others on the path the day before Christmas. So, why not? I went five miles instead. And it was easy. Tomorrow it may be a bit more challenging but I'll do it, no matter what. The temperature is supposed to spike to the sixties by Monday, too. It's my vacation, and I will run if I want to.
Also, if you are in Athens you can plan on seeing me at the Skull around 10 AM. Join me!
