      We can't always do the things we like all the time."  --Candice

        A pat on the bum and a "your man-boobs have really shrunk. Keep going" from my wife as I walked to the treadmill room on Christmas morning.

            It was a good Christmas, running-wise.

            Road ID, so that when I get hit by a car and lay lifeless on the side of the road I might be identified and my loved ones notified.

            And, a very loud bluetooth speaker, so that I can hear my podcasts and radio and music off my iPhone over the sound of my treadmill and fan.

            PRs: 3:27 marathon; 1:41 half; 45:07 10K; 23:26 5K; 6:02 mile; <12 parsecs Kessel Run

              Yep, prompt return of my remains is the reason I wear my Road ID.  It bugs DW when I say that, though.

               

              I got fleece undies for running in this -16F windchill weather.  They were nice this morning.

              Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject. - S.J.


              Not dead. Yet.

                Got a nice little gym bag for lunch break easy runs.  I've already used it for a road trip to the VLA.

                How can we know our limits if we don't test them?

                  Haha, nice one jimmy!  I got a replacement pair of GoRun2's and a Garmin foot pod.  Turns out my cadence is already at 180.  Sweet!

                    A new running jacket Smile  I may have informed Santa which one I liked and where to buy it as a strong hint tho Wink

                     

                    I bought myself a RoadID as a present.  As much as I hope I don't get hit, at least with it on if I do get hit or am unable to tell them for some other reason the paramedics will know who I am.  Tongue

                    "Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run."  -Monte Davis

                      Not only will they see me coming, they will think I'm from Tron. :-) As a former electrical engineer, that brings me much joy. This thing is light... in more ways than one!

                        Thank goodness, nothing running related.  A new racquetball racket, a new tennis racket and some really warm gloves for downhill skiing.  Gloves too warm for Cross Country skiing or snow shoing.

                        I am fuller bodied than Dopplebock

                          Of the running items I scored, the smallest may turn out to be the best.  Got several pair of Injinji's, which I put to the test.  14 miler on Thursday and a 22 miler on Sunday.  No new blisters!!  Sweet!

                          2015 goals:   •  2,500 miles  •  Get healthy  •  50 miler

                            Wind pants and a few pair of socks, plus a gift certificate to my favorite tattoo shop where I plan on getting my first running related ink.

                             

                            Also I got some extra motivation to keep running this week (even though it's a holiday week again) in the form of a few dozen chocolate espresso cookies.

                              Some very cool headphones for running. My old ones got ruined. I'm guessing it was from all the sweat;-)
