The Birthday Run

25 days into the new streak and another year older. Last year at this time I expected to be in much better shape than I am right now. Once the streak ended in September, I was on work travel for two months and gained almost 15 pounds. The travel ended almost two months ago now, but the weight sure doesn't fall off as fast as it goes on.

Last year on my birthday I ran a 3.6 mile run and it was 16 degrees. This year - 3.6 miles and 16 degrees. But I was not as fast - almost a minute and a half slower, but to be honest, I was just taking in the sunshine through my 3 layers of clothes.

I guess the point this year will be to try and lose some weight, run some miles, and maybe get a little faster.
