Despite my watch battery dying part way on the downhill, it still captured my ascent of Mt Tam, and enough of the descent for almost 6 miles of the 8.5 miles total roundtrip. That was just enough to push me over 900 miles for the year.

I haven’t run up Mt Tam in months, so the 84 minutes PR (personal record) felt good. My heart felt strong (not broken). I kept thinking of everyone I was grateful for this year, those I’ve known for years, and new friends I met in 2019. Love you all.
