Thanks Santa!

I guess that having a hobby/obsession such as running makes it easy to pick out Christmas (and birthday gifts). I did well this year. For my birthday, I got a new pair of trail shoes (New Balance MT875's), a long sleeve fleece top, and Dean K's first book (my last copy fell apart) - oh, and I am now in a different age group - I "jumped the box" so to speak.

For Christmas, I did well too - a long sleeve running top/jacket (the sleeves come off, so it doubles up as a vest), a pair of Zensah compression calf sleeves, a holder for my mp3 player, a Nathan 2 liter hydration vest, a Nathan handheld, a replacement drink bottle, "Born to Run" by Christopher McDougall and a Headsweats heawrap.

Jess and I are thinking about doing a Christmas in July for 2010 - that way, I can get some summer gear too!

Wilbur and Sarah love their new waterbottle and their flashing red collars :) - I'm not too sure that Sarah likes her new coat though :)

Happy Christmas everyone!


  1. Sounds like you must have been VERY good in 2009. That was quite a haul! Are you going to Frosty January 9th? Hope you have a great 20101

  2. I was actually quite naughty (but just didn't get caught!)

    I was definitely thinking of the Frosty - it is just one week away from Weymouth Woods 100K though, so I will skip it this year. It does look a good race though.
