Let’s get on to the random thoughts for today, shall we?

I’m running the BMW Dallas Marathon this upcoming Sunday! Yes, I can’t wait and I think the weather is going to be pretty much perfection. Temps at the start close to the 40s? HECK YES. I am all in.

I don’t do very well with cutting back on miles leading up to race day. I’ve been scaling back which as someone who runs higher mileage is like pulling out my eye lashes one by one. My body is kind of enjoying the break though. But mentally it is tough. And I’ve got all the attitude and sass in the world this week. So DON’T COME FOR ME. LOL. Watch out, I bite.

But hey, I can chillax and do things like read books, catch up on TV and…dare I say, eat CARBS?! Hallelujah.

I’ve officially been listening to Christmas music and slowly getting into the spirit lately. Plus I’ll be going to my favorite gift exchange/purse party with coworkers which is one of my favorite holiday parties of all time! Lord knows I am in dire need of a new purse.

Do you make cookies/Christmas treats for people as gifts?! I have been thinking about what I will make lately. I kind of love doing Christmas baking. I think this year I will do my puppy chow and throw some Christmas M&Ms in there. Also, what a terrible name for a dessert right? But they are oh so good.

What are you looking forward to this holiday season? Any Christmas races?

  1. I am looking forward to a little bit of Christmas luck in the house buying ordeal! hahahaha. I am also looking forward to the extra cash flow of overtime holiday work (not that I love working on a holiday but at least I am making overtime) as well as end of year bonuses and raises. I am in desperate need of it hahaha.

  2. I’ve been listening to Christmas music for a month because I am a wuss, and this year I want to bake Christmas cookies. I’ve never done it before but I want to try and then give them out as gifts (if they’re worthy).

    1. Awesome! Yeah I think treats are always great gifts especially for coworkers. One of my coworkers always has the most amazing baked goodies and I look fwd to being naughty and trying them every year!!

  3. Good luck on Sunday! Will be cheering virtually for you.
    I don’t bake any treats because well, I suck. I usually buy my treats. Lol.
    I am definetly doing a Santa shuffle next year, God willing.

  4. Thank you so much for the promo code!!!

    We ran the Ho Ho Hustle 10k on Saturday and it was pretty chilly in the Florida Panhandle, some areas around us ended up with a little snow!!
