I’m feeling a bit like Britney Spears here…I’ve had so many costume changes this weekend my head is spinning. Happy to say that’s all I have in common with her, but I digress. Let’s get into the holiday mayhem, shall we? First up, Friday night’s ugly Christmas sweater party. This involved the whole Wal-Mart experience, where I unfortunately couldn’t find a sweater, but did get my hands on this beaut of a sweatshirt. Nice, huh?
Saturday morning–off to the races for my Solstice 5-mile run. Had a decent race, finishing in 35:46 and placing 3rd in my age group. I have to say, running for the first time in a while at a pace that much faster than marathon pace hurt–a lot! My lungs were just done with it all. My IT band was none too happy about it either. It’s better today, though, so I’m relieved.
Saturday night, onto a neighborhood holiday party. No pics of that costume, just forgot in the flurry of activity.
Finally, today, Sunday, saw me looking like a big blue Michelin Man. We went to D.C. to go through the ICE show. It’s an amazing ice sculpture display, all done in a Grinch scene, complete with ice slides for the kids. It was 9 degrees in there, so by the time we got to the end of it, we were ready to thaw out!
Hope your weekend of holiday insanity was a good one. Don’t forget my Silver Maple Jewelry giveaway, here. It ends Tuesday!
