Things got way out of hand. I got a little behind on the recaps and then I kept saying I'd make them up. And I just never did. And it's been 2 and half months (and many races including 2 marathons) and I haven't. So I'm just going to start up again. I'm sad that I don't have details kept about those but I need to get over it!

Kory and I spent Christmas at home in Jacksonville like we do every year and we drove home today. Then Faith and I ran later that night. Because my leg has been bothering me, I haven't done a training run since before Space Coast Marathon so I hadn't gotten to see the house with the insane lights. Luckily they were still up tonight!
Monday--1 mile in 9:17 Owwww
We were supposed to run 16 miles for our last long run but teachers got free Tijuana Flats so I visited with Faith, Blair, Ava Joy & Jordan after Ava Joy's gymnastics class. We ran a bunch of errands after and were still too full so 1 mile it was.
Tuesday-- 1 mile in 10:23 Faith's birthday run!
We did our tradition of running a mile and then catching up at Starbucks!
After a shower and a nap, it was time to celebrate the birthday girl! First up, we went to Rebounderz! I'd been wanting to try a trampoline place and was excited when Faith wanted to go there. This was so. much. fun!!
Then we headed to Chick-fil-a for lunch.
I went home for a little break and then we all met up again along with Heather, Chase, and Cori at Winter Garden Bowl. It was so much fun! Cheap games, cheap alcohol and a totally throwback to my childhood feel. I'll definitely be back!
We ended the night at Chili's for dinner/snacks.
Wednesday-- 8 miles in 1:32:38 Last medium run before Dopey! Mile 1: 10:44, Mile 2: 11:00, Mile 3: 12:03, Mile
4: 11:31, Mile 5: 12:05, Mile 6: 11:51, Mile 7: 11:59, Mile 8: 11:26, Average
I had a chiropractor appointment. It was my first one ever and I wasn't sure what to think going in. They were really nice and seem to think they could help. Too bad I waited until the week before Dopey. We had planned on running 16 since we shortened on Monday but we decided that since we were hurting, to keep it at 8. I'm starting to get worried about the full. Not really sure how it's gonna go.
I worked in Tour Guide at the Great Movie Ride for 4 hours. I've worked every New Years Eve since I started so I wanted to get a few hours in.
I figured out my stats for 2015: ran 950.15 miles and 36 races: 11 5ks, 1 6k, 1 4 miler, 3 10ks, 3 15ks, 1 half that wasn't a half, 10 half marathons, and 6 full marathons. I placed 1st in my age group one time and 2nd in my age group one time. And I completed the Goofy Challenge, Glass Slipper Challenge, Pixie Dust Challenge, Coast to Coast Challenge, Milky Way Challenge and 2,015 miles in 2015 Challenge! It was a great running year!
Then we had our annual pajama party at Cori's house. It's always a blast!
I had to get one more family pic for the year when we got home (only a few minutes late).
Kory and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the Gators play Michigan in the Citrus Bowl. We lost but I have to keep remembering that we did much better this season than we expected!
Saturday--3 miles in 37:27 Continuing the trend of running the first run of the year with the munchkin.
Mile 1: 10:58, Mile 2: 12:48, Mile 3: 13:39, Average Pace: 12:28
I met up with Faith and Ava Joy for lunch at Panera and then we ran some errands.
I just chilled out at home. I am so not ready for break to be over. I don't want to go back to work!
