    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Congratulations An Other Half. If you start running now DR you can get the miles in by midnight tomorrow. Quite some effort nevertheless. I think the trick is to stay injury free and have very little else to do.

  • Starting a 2019 thread alehouse?
  • Your wish is my command, DR! See thread below (or above): was just starting it when you posted!
