I heard you fired Rudolph and has decided to run instead in delivering your gifts. That's awesome. You can start counting 3-6 months from now and that big belly of yours will surely disappear =D
Anyway, with the fast-approaching Christmas, i know you're so busy checking your list, reading it twice and finding out who's naughty or nice...I just want to let you know that I've been mostly N-I-C-E this year.
Don't ask me though if hubby has been nice but definitely my two kids have been a little bit naughty. It seems they don't run out of any thing to fight on making me a grumpy mom sometimes. But, anyway, as I've said I've been mostly nice this year - I cut a lot of my shopping spree, I reduced my intake of junk foods, I did my share of giving (in my little special way) and best of all, I pursued RUNNING!
Hence, for my wish list this season, allow me to provide you with my shameless rundown *blushing*:
1. Waist bag. You can choose either -
|Mizuno Bottle Waist Pouch|
|Nathan Speed 2 Waistpack|
2. Watch with GPS. This is my all-time wish....
|Garmin Forerunner 310XT|
|Soleus GPS 1.0|
My hubby has this watch but in green. He got it from somebody who loves him a lot. Who else but the FABrunner!
3. Any book by John "The Penguin" Bingham, except Running for Mortals.
My addiction to running even shows on what books I read. I'm struggling to finish Games of Thrones (just halfway through but no longer advancing!) but I've already finished two running books (Born to Run and The Runner's Body). Two new books I ordered from Amazon just arrived this morning - Running for Mortals and What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Murakami.
4. Brand new shoes... K-Swiss versus Asics
I actually like K-swiss more though GT-2160 was recently named best shoe in the world for 2011.
5. And finally, an alternative to running shoes... Vibram Five-Fingers!
There, my dearest St. Nicholas, you can now choose what to give me this Christmas. By the way, my shoe size is 8 inches (but sometimes 7.5).
Looking forward to that awesome gift and keep running!
REFLECTIONS (through Fr. Anton): 3 Major temptations during Christmas (1). Santa without Christ is relativism; (2) Christmas tree without belen is materialism; (3) Saying 'happy holidays' instead of "merry Christmas" is secularism. So make sure to always include Jesus in your Christmas. HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!!
