        Long term goal: To say I've been a runner half my life.  (I started running at age 45).


          I got some new running tights & a sports bra.  Santa was good to me.  Big grin

            I guess word has gotten out that I have taken up jogging in the last couple of years.....


            • Nike winter running hat
            • Brooks neck warmer
            • UA compression shorts
            • Knuckle Lights
            • Brooks thermal pants
            • two massages
            • Runningwarehouse gifts cards that I used to purchase a second pair of those pants, some compression shorts, and a pair of NB 1400's
            • and I used some cash that mom gave me to sign up for three races

            I didn't get that Family Guy DVD I wanted though.  Talk about getting screwed this year.

                  Got a Brooks Nightlife Jacket - no more ninja runnning for me!  I'll also be trying on a plethora of shoes on Friday - still trying to find the perfect pair Smile



                    I got to run again. It was the best gift ever and I am grateful for every single step.

                    Not quite right


                      -Garmin 410

                      -Compression Socks

                      - couple pairs of running pants or warm ups how every you want to look at it


                      Now plan to hit some after x-mas sales to get few more items


                      never runs the tangents

                        I got black arm warmers just like the neon yellow ones I have...only in black. Because as much as I like the bright colors when I run in the dark it would be nice to have some that are not neon yellow for when I'm say running in a race on a closed road and don't really need to glow in the dark.


                        and some running socks from the dog


                        ok maybe I bought those and wrapped them and said they were from the dog but he got DH some running socks too and I didn't think he wanted to play favorites like that


                        My birthday is Saturday though and I'm pretty sure I'm getting running shoes.

                          I'm excited about the last one the best. You'll be able to see me from the MOON.


                          Also, Santa's little helper (my hubby) made me an amazing medal hanger. There's a picture in today's dailies.


                            Nike Element Shield, Free Runs and a Nike Gift Card.


                              Forerunner 110.  My first Garmin. Smile


                              Oh, and my mom got me some bangin' knee socks!  Like 8 pair!  I can't wait to rock those bad boys!

                              Do you even run?


                                New running tights and two matching shirts.

                                A few $$$ that I'm going to use to either register for another race or buy another pair of running kicks.
