1. The hubs and I put our giant Christmas tree up a little while ago. Since we aren’t hosting any dinners/parties, we debated putting it up but we went ahead and it looks great. There was some grumbling about the amount of work for just the two of us but I said we should just suck it up and be eff-ing jolly about it. We did, we were and I feel somewhat Christmas-y for the first time in a few years.
2. Last night was a FANTASTIC Z3 (tempo run)…I felt like I kicked the crap out of the run. It was our first ‘cold’ run involving temps in the ‘negative’ range. (~23 F for you non-metrics) Old Man Winter wasn’t too bad so I’ll be jolly about that.
3. This weekend is a time filled with Christmas visits and family. I love the fact that for our gathering on Saturday, I was asked to bring a salad as apparently I make interesting salads. It makes me jolly my family remembers this…but now I am under some pressure to come up with something unique. We are doing an Italian theme so if you have any vegan ideas…hit me up.
4. My new shoes are about to make an official appearance in the run rotation. They are bright so I love them and they make me jolly:
Are you a jolly Holiday person?
Are you a flashy or understated kind of person?
