I didn't hit my 25 mile goal last week. I knew that the chances of hitting it were slim because I had a minor planned surgery (removal of a benign intraductal papilloma in my breast) on Friday morning and had to be off through the weekend. Which meant I had 4 running days to work with. Add on top of that the fact that it was the week leading up to Christmas, I feel lucky that I got some decent miles in on those four days.
I have 14 miles to run before the end of the year to hit my 100 miles/month goal and 20.37 miles to get to an even 1700 miles for the year. I feel this is more than doable, although I foresee a lot of treadmill time in the week ahead as the temperature is -3 right now. Good thing I got some new running mittens for Christmas!

This was my last "beat the bus" run of 2017 - aka where I race home from work and try to get in as many miles as I can before my daughter's bus drops her off from school.
