Total Distance

AM - Another fail with Jordanne and Lisa.  Met up at Soos Creek but it was pretty slick.  They went home - I went to the gym and did 3 quick miles on the indoor track in 25:30, then did an hour of Centergy.

PM - After the final dump-run for the tree, headed out to run as much as I could before dark.  This ended up being 7 miles in 1:02.  

10 miles total, not the same as a long run, but I'll pretend it is.

I have a niece named Nicole, and sometimes I sing this song to her:

Nicole, Nicole,

She fell in a hole.
