Gooood morning! How was your weekend?
My weekend went by very quickly yet again. It seems that between all the chores I leave for the weekend and all the holiday activities going on, my weekend just flies by! It was still a good time, though.
Friday night, the hubs and I went out shopping to get some stuff off our list. One thing we both really needed in lieu of our upcoming half-marathon is some better winter running clothes.
I picked up some new compression tights that had been on my list forever, and also got this super
dorky cool headcovering thingy (as seen here).
If you aren’t a runner, you may not understand the need to post about new running gear. But trust me, new running gear makes up about half of my motivation to even run these days 😛
It wasn’t quite cold enough to actually wear any this for my long run, but I wore it anyway to just to test it out. It all stood the test for 6 miles!
My long run wasn’t bad or good, but I’ll go into more detail about that on my training recap tomorrow.
Saturday night, one of my friends put on a gingerbread house making party.
She went all out and had pretty much any candy you could ever think of. She made the gingerbread house frames herself instead of buying a kit. So cool!
Our house turned out decent, but not nearly as cool as some of the other couples. The fact that it was standing was enough for me 😉
Sunday, as much as I wanted to just stay home and rest, I went out and did some more shopping. I realized I was going to be pretty short on time this week, and I need all my Christmas gifts by this Saturday before my trip!
I managed to get some of the things I needed, so now we actually have presents under the tree! Getting so excited for Christmas 🙂
Elf for Health
I’m also excited that I’ll be participating in round two of the Elf for Health challenge for the next two weeks.
The challenge is simply one activity a day for two weeks where you are partnered with another “elf” to encourage and support throughout. So you will likely be seeing some of my challenge activities on social media & the blog the next two weeks!
Questions for You:
- What was the highlight of your weekend?
- Where’s your favorite place for Christmas gifts this year?
