Hi friends! I hope everything is going great and you enjoyed your looooong weekend. I sure did! I could get used to it. I still have some company, but it’s definitely a lot less stress now that the holidays are over. We had some festive fun, including heading to Temple Square to see the beautiful lights.
I had a fun time with my husband’s family, and I am happy to say, people took to heart when I said I need running things. (Need is a relative word, I know, but sometimes it’s hard to convince the husband I need ANOTHER running top.)
My parents and my parents-in-law got me some cool weather running tops from luluemon athletica (the one from my parent’s is the purple Stride Jacket that has been featured a LOT recently on the blog), including the run: your heart out pullover:
So guess what else I got?
A GARMIN!! It’s the Forerunner 110 with heartrate monitor (I haven’t used that part yet though) I LOVE it! It’s amazing, I no longer need to carry my silly phone that get’s creative sometimes and seriously messes up my routes.
We had a fantastic holiday of food and fun, and I am happy to report that I kept up with ALL my mileage! I have yet to miss a workout since I officially started my half marathon plan, although two were cut short. Last week I did almost 21 (!!!) miles! I didn’t think I would ever do that.
