This week was my last race of the season. Always a fun one!
The weather was just so nice & warm almost the entire week . . . right up until the day of the race, of course. Did I mention it’s a night race?

#yogastreak, that is.
There does seem to always be one day a week I can’t get to it until the evening and I’m simply too exhausted. #notbeatingmyselfup — I’m getting in a lot more yoga!
I do YFR (Yoga for Runners) Foundation segment often, but I’ve found myself throwing in pigeon, cat/dog, and child’s pose in place of tadasana.
Running is still going pretty well. Lots of stress, so I run it off, but there’s no pressure with no real races looming.
I deliberately ran into the early evening this week so I could take a gander at the Christmas lights in the neighborhood. The warm weather was just a bonus.
Ran my last 5k of the year, also my slowest, but it was always meant to be a fun run and it was just that. I’ll recap it later.
He was doing much better right up until Friday this week. The new settings for the laser seem to help, but oddly enough the acupuncture seemed to negatively effect him.
He let me sleep later most mornings, but I’m still very, very tired. Stress, too many nights with too little sleep, the short days — which are going to start to get longer, thank God!
I am drinking tea like it’s my job!

Last Run. It’s just a fun race, I knew a lot of people there (although finding them was hit or miss), the fireworks, the lights.
I ran into Michele, a friend of a friend I met at the Jingle Bell 5k, and we exchanged emails. I talked about my USAFit group and she’d been talking to one of the ladies I run with about it earlier — running is a small world!
