Finished the Holiday Challenge with 157,762 meters

My Day 1 of the Holiday Challenge

While the 2015 Concept2 Holiday Challenge started at midnight the moment the calendar ticked over to November 26, I didn’t get on the seat until an hour ago, then I put in a slow 10k towards the 200k I need to log between now and midnight Christmas Eve: 23:59:59.   Well, more accurately, 10,042 meters, tonight, in 58:53.3.
