Christmas Eve Weekend Recap

Did you know that yesterday was called “Christmas Adam”, because it’s the day before Christmas Eve (and Adam came before Eve)? I learned that from Lindsay yesterday – she’s so smart!

I also ran 20 miles yesterday!



My first 20 mile run of the season, as I get ready for my 50K in February & marathon in March. It went really well, except that this klutz tripped around mile 15 and gracefully landed my bottom on the ground (ouch!). Then rolled my ankle around my 18 just to keep it interesting. Kristin also rocked out 19 miles yesterday – we were virtual running buddies! 😉

Photo from around mile 17 on the run – came out a little darker than it actually was.

And about now I’m doing the opposite of running – sitting in a car for countless hours on our way to spend Christmas in Florida with my sister. But don’t worry about our doggies, they are comfy at home. We have an awesome dog-sitter/house-sitter that stays with them when we go out of town.

Weekend Recap

Now if you’re spending the day with family, you should probably stop reading this post and go spend some time with them. Unless you need a mental break. =) In that case, here’s a summary of the happenings around here over the past week. There has been a definite Christmas theme going on!

MondayGetting into the Christmas Spirit with Christmas Cards Outakes from our Christmas Card “photo session” with our two dogs: Abbott & Zurie. A great laugh to start the day and our digital Christmas Card for you!

TuesdayRecipe: Santa Loves My Eggnog Spice Biscuits! Just in time for Christmas morning, these yummy biscuits are eggnog-licious! I used Earth Balance Nog for my version, but So Delicious makes a Nog that would taste equally amazing.

      I know this comment is late, but I did see it when we were traveling and it made me smile! :) I’m so glad that I helped motivate you to get out and run.

    I hadn’t heard the term Christmas Adam until Lindsay posted it either. Great job on your run. What March marathon are you doing? The Publix GA? (I still want to call it the ING, the Pubix doesn’t sound the same.)

      I always want to call that one ING too. :) I’m actually doing the Publix half, but the marathon I’m doing is the one in New Orleans (it’s a Rock N Roll one). Speaking of, I should probably register for that one.
