Thanks all! I have a column due tomorrow in case you all read these things! Should be published Friday or Monday. Meantime I'm thinking there will be a final 12wk challenge ahead of the London Marathon in late April. This month I'll be joining another runbet!

Got a run in today, but it was too short to count for this challenge! Merry Christmas to all! I'm falling further and further behind Jen, but I'm coming for you in these last few days! Everyone who completes this bet has something to be proud of regardless of the number of miles. Congrats to all
