My Christmas gift to myself has been essentially taking the month of December off from worrying about running. I've been rather lackadaisical about getting in my runs and not worrying too much when I don't.
I did, however, go on my first double digit run since October last Wednesday. I slept in and then bundled up for a chilly 10 miler. Even though it had snowed quite a bit on Monday night I knew the streets would be clear enough. I took it easy and didn't worry about my pace. Especially since I'd run long less than a week before.
I meant to write about this particular run after it happened but I got wrapped up in Christmas prep and then actually celebrating Christmas with my family and my husband's family. Which means I don't recall much about this run other than that it happened.
I meant to at least run on the treadmill at our hotel while visiting Jason's family but it never happened. Late nights and early mornings coupled with enjoying not having to do anything specific lead to no running.
However, Santa brought me some new running swag including new socks and arm warmers. Not to mention my new medal holder:
I guess I'd better get out there and get ready to earn some more medals to put on that thing!
