Happy holidays!

cookieexchange 300x202 Happy holidays!

Part of my amazing group of running friends before heading out at night to see the lights

We never need an excuse to get together and run, but my running crew and I have done a bang up job of late making ones up. Our holiday themed runs have included the Celtic Solstice 5-miler, a night-time run through neighborhood lights (followed by a cookie exchange), a Christmas Eve morning run, and finally, a boxing day run (and brunch!) this coming Wednesday. Lots of fun combining my favorite pass-time with some of my favorite people. I am blessed.

I am also excited to say I am among an amazing group of folks nominated for a #Runchat award this year. If you’re on Twitter and you’ve got a minute, I’d love it if you took a minute to check my name!

Other than that, I’m going to keep things a bit quiet here over the coming week. I’ll check in from time to time, but my focus will be on family and friends. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of my incredible, supportive readers. You’ve helped make this an amazing year for me!
