Merry Christmas!

Today I rode for around an hour, so I didn’t run.  It’s been a while since I have ridden that long and I could definitely feel it in my legs!  Plus, this is the first year that I have hosted a proper Christmas so with all the cooking (and, it has to be said, eating and drinking) there wasn’t the time, or the inclination, to get out and run.

But it was a little sad.  Although I had some good friends, and Tin Man, and the Neon Toddler around at my house, it was still a bit bittersweet.  I would have liked to be with my family in Australia.  This is the first year that I’ve really missed having my family all together for Christmas.

I got some good gifts, including some gels, some running socks, a book on running by Paula Radcliff, and entry to a half marathon in February.

What running-related gifts did you get?

  1. Merry Christmas lovely! I had entry to Bacchus Marathon (wine AND running!!) and Tough Mudder. Running socks and from my work Secret Santa some lovely new gloves and gels!! Brilliant!!

  2. Merry Christmas, sorry to hear you have been feeling homesick. I got my new running trainers, Brooks Pure Cadance 2, a little slim running belt bag, some lovely Nike running tights. So quite a bit of running stuff. I loved getting out for a run on Christmas day, it was pretty deserted but that was part of the fun.
