Been a fun eventful Christmas weekend. Went to see Star Wars yesterday – was GREAT, welcome back Star Wars – then had dinner at a restaurant/sports bar opened by the Bills owners that I’ve been meaning to visit, watched the Sabres/Bruins game on a gargantuan screen, was like being at the Boston Garden, unfortunately the Bruins lost, but a good time was had by all. Got in a 14 mile run in the morning before all that, the first 7 with my son, we picked up the pace and it became a hard workout for him. But he hung with me, being the trooper that he is, the blessing/curse of being the son of a runner.
Then we went to the mall today – don’t know what I was thinking. I don’t go to the mall often, but decided to check it out today. It was fun and festive, but the parking and driving in and out of the mall reminded me why I stay away. Ran 12 miles around the neighborhood this evening, past all the pretty holiday lights still up. Bummed that Christmas is over, but those lights and the thought of the upcoming New Years helped cushion the blow.
