:video_game: Games I played

Mileage was down quite a bit from 2020. I was dealing with some leg/knee injuries, and a newborn makes running a bit harder (lack of time and, mostly, lack of energy).

According to Strava I ran 295 miles and biked 224 miles in 2021. Excludes some indoor cycling.

  1. I’ve actually used the recipes in this for a while, but I finally read the whole thing.

  2. Finally finished this game, years later. Definitely an all-time favorite!
