Weekly Run Down for 12.4.22-12.11.22: All Good Things Must Come to an End…

So today is my last race for 2022!!!

My 34th of the year.

I must say it’s been a fairly good racing year.

No PRs but many age group awards, some new races, a few out of town races and zero injuries!!!

Last Week:

  • Sunday – A little tired from my NYC adventures but still needed to get moving…

Just a short local hike (sorry no pics)

Unpacking, laundry, grocery shopping, errands, etc.

  • Monday – #Nevermissamonday….

With a busy week ahead, I squeezed in a lunch run on the rail trail.

a little breezy but surprisingly my legs felt great

And I bumped into my running friend Barbara… we walked and chatted for a bit. Unfortunately I had to get back home to work.

  • Tuesday –  Busy work day but again, I ran at lunch. I had less time so I stayed in the ‘hood…

lots of decorations and drizzle but warmer than the day before

and after work, I attended a book talk with a friend

I got his previous book (Chasing Manhattan) as a birthday gift last year

with my running friend Linda

  • Wednesday – Too busy at work to run and the weather was less than ideal so I took a rest day.

And got my nails done…

  • Thursday – Back to teaching in person so I could only drive to UAlbany after work to get my run done. I was lucky that my running friend from Fla was in town and we ran together with another friend (and then had dinner together.)

full moon!!.

  • Friday – Another rest day due to in person teaching, and other stuff…

But I did get together with the mah jongg ladies that evening.

  • Saturday – I had decided to only walk with my running friends this morning (becuse I had a race the next day) but they thought it was too cold.

Plan B: a long run with Stan and Sherry followed by brunch.

a little windy in one direction but the sun helped and the weather felt perfect for running

Then in the evening, we had our annual potluck dinner.

great food and lots of laughs

  • Sunday – Doug Bowden Winter Series #1

A local running club sponsors five free races during the winter.  Each race has varying distances.  I chose the short one today..

Hope I get it done before the snow…

  1. You’ve really had a great year- 33 races and no injuries! You should do a recap post- best race, worst race, hottest race, coldest race, etc. Anyway I hope you enjoyed your race today and didn’t get snowed on!

  2. I’m done with races for the year. We are doing Hannukah on Sunday with my parents, celebrating the Solstice next Wednesday with friends, and then my parents will come for Christmas Eve. My mom might have to work on Christmas, so I may make it a day of pajamas and snacks. Mr PugRunner likes to have a big, fancy meal, but quite frankly, he doesn’t do any of the prep and I doubt he will have much energy for the holiday, so I’m giving myself a pass.
