Gift Wrap-up

Since I wrote a post about what I wanted for Christmas, I figured I ought to write a little follow up post.  Well wouldn’t you believe it, I must have been really good this year because I got everything on my list (except for Stanley, but I’m willing to extend Santa’s deadline on that one).  I’m loving my new Garmin Forerunner 350, Sugoi hoodie, Under Armour gloves, water belt, and all the other awesome gear I got.

I spent my Christmas break in the tri-state area: CT, NY and NJ.  And boy was it cold.  Aside from one slightly warmer day where I was able to get out and run the hills around my mother’s house, I was pretty much confined to the treadmill the rest of time.  But it’s just as well that I stayed away from any strenuous workout since my shin splints are giving me a real hard time and my 18-week marathon training plan begins this week.

So here you go.  Enjoy the pics of my presents.  I’m enjoying them myself.

Sugoi hoodie + new cycling shorts + Fox = happy holidays

Are we in Conn. or DC? This snow is confusing me…

So I know this isn’t about running or horses but this is DC/Md, and it never snows like this!  We ventured out once today in our car and saw lots of kids with sleds and one man out for his daily run.  I don’t know how he was doing it, but good for him.  As for me, I’m off to the gym to get on the stationary bike for an hour.  Maybe if the sidewalks get shoveled I’ll be out running in the snow tomorrow.

Hope everyone stays warm and dry this weekend!  Running will resume soon…
