Happy new year!!!
I rang in 2011 with some great girlfriends:
Our husbands were around, too, but we all make for a cuter photo :-)
This was the third year that we've had a new year's eve party at our house since moving in 2007 and I love being able to celebrate with good friends. It's just fun to end one year and start another surround by fun, happy people!

As 2010 ended so did the month of December, which happened to be one great month of running. Helped by warmish weather and my newfound friendship with the treadmill, I was able to run my highest mileage since September 2009.
No kidding! My highest monthly mileage in over a year. Writing that, I feel slightly ridiculous. Like, what was I doing October through January last year?
Anyway, this month I made time to run while also making time for fun things like, oh, Christmas. Speaking of which, did I ever show you Conal's masterpiece? No? Well, here's his gingerbread house, or, more accurately, his graham cracker house:
He loved that thing. Every day he was picking at the "siding" and by the time we tossed it, most of the m&ms were gone.
So, good clean fun. Now, back to the running. Here's how the month looked:
Running (miles): 84.7
Cross-training (sessions): 4
Now, bring on 2011.
