Wednesday (14,762 steps) - Run club after work/school.
Thursday (18,400 steps) - Up at 3:03 am. Yes, 3:03 AM, for A's flight to Texas that was scheduled to leave Denver at 5:45 am. We headed out the door around 3:25. Car was parked by 4, and we were at the gate by 5. Her flight was on time, and they even pushed back a few minutes early. I got ready in the gym locker room and was at my desk by like 7:15 am. That meant that I could go to Laura's barre class again at lunch. After work I headed over to the Lakewood store. Heather had bailed, so it was just Colfax and me again.
Friday (28,768 steps) - As a result of being a party animal I was exhausted. I took a quick shower so I didn't look like a homeless person and got to work at 9 (yay for no traffic). I had a very busy morning and even left late because I couldn't get everything done. I barely made it to a noon barre class - last one before the holiday. Since I was off work in the daylight, I opted to drive down to Waterton Canyon for a longish run. I got a few miles in before I realized that I couldn't go too far because it would be getting dark earlier in the canyon. Did 8 miles, that were actually pretty chilly. It was really pretty, but I was bummed to not see any sheep!
Saturday (20,255 steps) - Yay for an unofficial Runners Edge run!! I was hoping to do the full distance, but the people in my pace group weren't going quite that long. The run was at South Table in Golden, and I was really excited for it because I had not run out there before. Immediately I was the very last person, I have been having the angry calves again. The first 2/3 of a mile were on the road, and then a gradual incline up to the mesa. That section wasn't too bad, and I did see some deer off on the other side mesa, but too far away for a picture. Once were about a mile and half up, the rutted sections with ice started. Gotta say this was not my favorite part of the run. By the time we were heading back down it was SUPER muddy (since it was so sunny). Managed to get 7 miles in.

Sunday (32,238 steps) - Midnight on the dot, and we were off. Thankfully, we didn't actually do much running. Stacy was more hoping for time on her feet and that was fine by me. We started on the outer loop, but it was icier than we expected so the two of us moved to the road and never saw anyone else as a result. The temps were actually pretty mild, and we got 7 miles in before calling it quits.

- 144,167 steps
- 33.5 miles run
- 4 barre classes, some treadmill walking
- Weight - it's a mystery!
- Nothing much else is going on. Managed to make it through Christmas without being quite as depressed as I have been in the past.
- Work still kinda sucks, coming up on my two year anniversary and I guess I hope the perfect career just falls magically into my lap? I can dream, I guess?
