Today ends week sixty-nine of running against Obama. I ran 16.6 miles this week, averaging 2.37 miles per day.

“I like the commercial Christmas we now practice in this country. You know why? Because I'm an American. I love Santa. And Christmas trees, and lights, and presents and everything that makes you feel warm inside. Because I'm an American.”

This is the opening line to an article at the HuffingtonPost by Cenk Uygur. He makes some valid points about Christmas, this holiday that is scrutinized more and more each year for reasons that go right over the heads of those who have problems with the sight of a Christmas tree or the utterance of “Jesus”.

In terms of a pie chart, which has only a fine sliver of representation belonging to those who seem to dislike Christmas to the point that they would rather do away with it all together, it is a shame that so many of us who do love Christmas for a multitude of assorted reasons have to slowly watch the holiday get begrudged more and more each year. As Uygur goes on to explain, there is a larger American picture that is severely missed.

613.4 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day118.
