I should've been 1 of the Christmas Day runners. I probably wouldn't have eaten all of those cookies! I will be a New Year's Day runner!

22 miles? On a Treadmill? On Christmas Day?

Congratulations! That is impressive commitment to your training.

Congratulations!
Welcome.
I over ate big time so it was a short slow run, but at least I got out.

I used to wonder what was wrong with those idiots out running on Christmas Day.

Now I are one.
