And I kept my run on through it all! On Christmas Eve, I joined up with Sole Sisters Patty, Laura and Karyn as we tackled 9+ miles on a sunny but very cold morning. We ran the Pekin trails, which are one of my favorites. I wasn't feeling it that morning, but so happy I had company to push me through the miles. I'm totally late in recapping for the virtual Christmas 5K, but my 5K split was 32:02. The backhalf of the long run was to complete the virtual Home for the Holidays 10K, so my official time for that race was 1:04.
|Christmas Eve run... Our hats/headbands were covered in frost!|
But now to the really fun news... NEW RUNNING STUFF!!
I'm most excited about the YakTrax. It was the "one" thing I wanted for snow-running this winter. But look at all the other stuff too... gloves, Luna bars, foot repair cream, knee high socks, gum, nuun, GU packets, BondiBand headband, clip-on light for a hat and a $25 gift certificate to our local running store.
Of course, last week I already received my new treadmill...
And yesterday, we stopped at four car dealerships during our long drive home looking for one of these...
|Dodge Journey in Pearl Blue... Yup, one is in my future... real soon!|
So what running toys did Santa bring you??
