Friday Five: Christmas Gifts


Every Friday, three DC area bloggers Mar at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC to host the Friday Five linkup.  Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!)  They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!

This week, the theme is FREE so I am choosing – My FAVORITE CHRISTMAS GIFTS

  1. I got this card in the mail 5 years ago from a blogger and I am re-posting:

This about sums it up for me.  What about you?

2. I got these SkirtSports pants and capris (and I’ve already worn them)



both are from SkirtSports

3. I got a hanger for my race medals (and as with most of my gifts, I ordered them myself so of course, I love them.)

It looked like this on the website. I’ll post a pic when I actually put mine up.

4.  Movie Tickets.  I love going to the movies especially when I am on break.

this one is on my “to see” list – already saw Suffragette, Star Wars & Brooklyn

5. Time off from work.

This is the best gift – 11 days off – Woo Hoo! – Running at any time of day!!!!


70 degrees on my first day off – the warm temps won’t last

Dec - running with a new friend

Last year, we ran together during my break. I work and Judy does not so it makes it hard to schedule runs together

Happy Running! What was your favorite gift this year?

    • I have no plans for the week besides a 3.5 miles race on Friday. LMK when is good for you. I will probably run Sat, Mon, Wed and then Sunday (weather permitting but I am pretty flexible.


  1. The card is perfect!! That is exactly what I want 🙂 I did order a new pair of shoes lol and socks, but I really want to run a few upcoming races. Do you wait till the last minute or like to sign up early? I have been hesitating about signing up!
