Better late than never …

I am a far cry from getting all the things on my “to do list” done today. On my list I still have a trip to the store, 10 gift bags to stuff, a few household chores and a run that may get done just before midnight … but I am one determined little bugger!

Well, I hope you all had a day where you decided that it was better late than never!!!

It looks (and feels) a lot like Christmas …

Decorating. Lists. Party planning. Shopping. Menus. The smells. Oh my, yes, the wonderful smells. Guest lists. Trees. Boxes. Wrapping. Tape. And more tape. Music. Santa. Elves on shelves … scary. Chilly weather. Baking. Cookies. And more cookies. Lights. Traditions. Family and friends.

Well, I hope you all had a day where it looked (and felt) A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS!!!

Things got a whole lot better …

I woke up this morning with a migraine hangover. Don’t ask me to explain, just trust me that it is fairly unpleasant, although not nearly as hideous as the migraine itself. I was also stressed out because I felt like I literally lost an entire day yesterday … RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS!

So I cleaned, emailed, made calls, shopped, and made peppermint bark like a crazy person to make up for what I didn’t get done yesterday. I felt so relieved with the progress I made that I was even able to relax and enjoy myself tonight with Sid and one of our teammates at a holiday party at one of our local running stores. And get this!!! I won training and coaching with a company that trains athletes all the way up to 50-milers! I am so excited!

Well, I hope you all had a day where things got a whole lot better!!!

Less is more …

I have learned that sometimes saying a lot isn’t always the best route to go … for myself … and definitely in what I hear (or read) coming out of someone else’s mouth (and/or computer/smartphone). Hello people, there really is something to be said for KEEPING IT TO A MINIMUM.

Well, I hope you all had a day where you learned LESS IS MORE!!!
