Hi, hey and hello! Did you have a good Christmas holiday? Mine I have to say was equal parts peaceful and productive. Let’s recap it a bit!
I kicked off the Christmas weekend with a run with my homegirl Tracy. Since I have a couple of ultras on the horizon I am working on keeping my mileage up and staying healthy. So I’m doing some runs on the road and a little bit more trail running. Anyway, 12.2 miles done. The miles literally fly by when there is juicy girl talk involved. How cute are our coffee cup warmers? I think I want one for every holiday.
Friday night I enjoyed some fun times with friends but I had a curfew since I had to get up early on Saturday. This is basically how my hair looked all weekend since I have been doing so much running. Hashtag I need to see a hair stylist pronto.
Saturday I got up early with another buddy for a Christmas eve run with the Dallas Dirt Runners. Me and this buddy had already planned on a 20 miler but we weren’t sure if we’d get it in since it had been raining the last couple of days. Thankfully it was not enough to close the trail so we got in a muddy 20 with the crew. One thing I love about running on trails is how good I feel and how quickly I recover afterwards. Loved this view.
I spent Christmas with the fam and mama got me a brand new Garmin 620. I actually love this color combo. I’ve taken it out for a spin the last few days and it has been fun so far playing with my new toy.
And finally, last week in review. Huge mileage week for me! My biggest ever actually…the most I’ve done prior to this has been 75 or so I believe. Thank you, Smashrun and strong legs.
How was your weekend? Do you have a Garmin? Which one?
