Switched my work from home day this week so I headed out the door right before 5 p.m. I listened in on a work call for most of this (that ran until 5:30), knowing I wouldn't have to talk or contribute. Crisp weather as the sun set - 58 degrees when I finished.

Ellie Mae - ran for a little bit with her to get some energy out.

Ordered one last thing for my London trip today. I'm such a sucker for ads and recommendations. This one wasn't an ad, but in a blog article from Scott's Cheap Flights (where I find my under $500 round trip flights to Europe!) about gifts for travelers. In their walking shoes section, I patted myself on the back for already having Rothys shoes, but then there was a recommendation for this waterproof sneaker and I remembered that it rains a ton in London, and my Rothys are probably not going to cut it for cold, wet conditions. So naturally I immediately ordered a pair. They're cute enough and hopefully comfy enough that I'm planning on wearing them 90% of my trip!

Lunch treadmill. Trying to will my running shoes to hang on until Black Friday. For some reason, this pair of Asics started developing holes by my pinkie toes (both feet) a number of weeks ago. Usually I get worn holes on the top by my big toe area, and near the end of their life, so this is new. And EARLY for this much wear and tear. I just hit 200 miles on this pair today!

Doing the math in anticipation of run streak day 365 (Thursday) - you'll have to wait until then to see my total mileage and other statistics . Still can't believe I've kept this going for an entire year! I've thought about continuing, but have decided I'm content and proud of what I've accomplished. And I need some true rest days in this off season leading up to the start of IM training.

Garmin didn’t transfer this so entering manually.
Good last long run before the thanksgiving race. 64 degrees and sunny. Left IT band was tight and both quads tight for most of this. Seemed to even out by the end. Felt good to hit double digits.

Also, and this is a serious request, can someone at Ironman Wisconsin next year bring a Bluetooth speaker and blast “Hey look ma I made it” by Panic at the Disco in my last mile? I’ve been playing this song as I turn into my neighborhood on my long runs (so the red carpet in my head!) and it makes me so happy! And then I have a delirious dance party in my kitchen imagining I just crossed the IM finish line. It’s the perfect song.

Definitely hard to get motivated on a dark, cold, rainy night after work. Trying hard to keep swimming through the winter so proud I drove myself to the gym and got this done.

43 degrees, bundled up in fleece leggings, fleece running sweatshirt, fleece headband and gloves. Very comfortable. A guy passed me on the Riverwalk wearing shorts, but then I didn't feel like such a wuss when I saw he had on a winter hat. You know when the runner guys put on a warm hat that it's actually cold.

Got a notice through my tri club that Tri Bike Transport runs an early bird special for 2020 races - $40 off if you reserve transport by midnight tonight. I was pretty sure I was going to do this, because I'm not interested in flying with my bike ever again, so went ahead and reserved it for Wisconsin. It's pretty sweet that one of the two drop offs in Atlanta is the All3Sports shop literally a mile from my house! 

If anyone else  needs the discount, the code is EARLYBIRD20
