Swim: 1600y, 1 practice
Run: 170.2 miles, 18 runs
Strength: 8 times
Yoga: 10 times
Only making it to one swim practice, and not even finishing that workout, means that I paid $45 for the monthly RAM membership for that one mile in the pool. This is particularly disappointing, mostly because I should have been able to swim at least once a week in the evenings. I can even get behind the 0 bike miles. But I should have swam more.
The 170.2 miles of running is absolutely outstanding however! That is a personal distance record and knocks a goal off of my 2015 list. I pulled it out by finishing the last 4 days of the year with runs of 10.1, 12, 11, and 10 miles. Really had to bring it home there.
December also had Kelley's birthday! It was a momentous occasion. We celebrated with overpriced taco sliders (tiny food for a lot of cash is popular right now), then went to the theatre to see the Nutcracker. True love is being a giant college football fan and DVR'ing your alma mater's first bowl game to take your wife to the ballet just because it's her birthday. I'm still proud that my Appalachian State Mountaineers won the first bowl game, even if it was almost 2 am when I finished watching it.

Finally in December I ended up trading in my car! Actually I was just going out to look at a few cars I found online. Then I test drove a Porche Boxter, but really felt like the clutch was too heavy for me to work if I had to drive myself home after a marathon, which happens more often than I care to admit. The 2nd car was this slick Audi TT convertible, and the price was right, so I picked it up! My Volvo ended up with a less than desirable trade-in value, so we ended up hanging onto it for a few days. Kelley's mom and dad separately chipped in to split the trade-in offer that I got into thirds, and we ended up gifting the car to my niece Kaileigh! Such an amazing Christmas present for her. She was totally blown away and in tears. And I'm happy that I have a slick, stick shifting, silver convertible. Kelley and the kids love it too.

Overall December had a lot of highs and a few lows. Overall I was glad to see 2015 come to an end, and this was a fun way to end it.
