Day 16 - was a really quiet run until I got to the half way point. I honestly think I didn't see any cars on the road until then. I was excited to get to this point. From here on out I would have run more than what I had left. So when I got to what I figured to be 1 1/2 miles I kicked up my heels. That was almost a huge mistake for right at that moment 2 cars tried to go 2 different directions on the same bit of road I was on and they both tried to do it from the center of the road. Last time I checked tires and the rest of the car were designed to drive on the slush and ice I was trying to run on to save my skin. Had a couple more close passes on this day, but none as close as this. Lots of slush running so it was a cautious and measured run.
Day 17 - more of the same from the previous day, just had a dose of runnus interruptus, I had to take a call about a mile into my run, so I went a little longer than planned to just be sure that I had truly run 3 miles. Day 17 was a much more enjoyable day to run. One less layer and sun was shining. Unfortunately, still a lot of slush and ice on the Flossmoor section of the run. For some reason today was also a day for a lot of tree crews. Didn't think tree cutting was usually done in December, but that's okay. I got my selfie for today thanks to them.
