well, yesterday's turned out to be a cold and windy day. Kim and I attended the Running Room's resolution run, where we both got our hands on a really nice running jacket. it was Kim's first run in 8 weeks, so we took it easy and just did 2k. It was fun to finally run with Kim again after such a long time.
later that night, i took in a new years eve party and got off to a good start with a 4k run home at 1 am.
after a good sleep, i was off to some friends for a new years day lunch feast! and then it was a run over to the pond for my first visit with the ducks in 2010.
more cable problems with rogers meant that i missed out on a couple of the bowl games. this time, in addition to the 400 series sports channels, about 80% of basic cable was down for about 4 hours! but it appears they are back on now so i have been enjoying the rose bowl and look forward to watching cincy take a shot at upsetting Florida in the sugar bowl. i still can't believe rogers continues to have signal problems. the technical support folks seem to be clueless as to what is going on. luckily, i have found a couple of tape trader websites, so there's a chance i can still get my hands on copies of the bowl games i have missed. perfect timing huh? cable has been fine all fall but the glitches hit right in the peak of bowl season.. always seems to be the case!
looking forward to getting back to the pool tomorrow for my first swim since dec 23. i am determined to get the swiming levels back to where they were in 2008.
