What are you asking Santa for?

Sunday ~ Day # 210

This weekend was filled with a lot.
A lot of running in one place.
A lot of wind and blowing snow.
A lot of housework.
A lot of playing.
A lot of preparing.
But finally Sunday morning we did what we haven't been able to do very often lately, we took time to slow down.  After church we attended a lunch and we lingered.  We visited with friends and family.

We even had a visit from Santa!

The cousins enjoyed getting to play together.

S'ghetti girl thinks maybe she is too old to sit on Santa's nap. 
But not too old to share her wish list with him!

LBM wasn't into sitting on a guy's lap but did enjoy his present! 
And made sure to tell Santa a few things on his wish list.
Thanks Santa.
It wasn't the weekend that I thought I might have.  I had been hoping for a early anniversary gift from Hubbs.
The half marathon kind.
But I didn't hint quite hard enough.
And to be honest, I enjoyed the break
of simply running
and stopping when I wanted to.

With the holidays we all are doing more than our fair share of racing around so my next race for now will still be Seneca Greenway Trail 50k and the the Hat Run 50k both are in early March. 

On my Christmas list this year, a strong mind and tireless legs.

What are you asking Santa for?


  1. lOVE THIS.

    yay FOR A sANTA VISIT.

    I'm asking Santa for the strength to do what I NEED to do this year. I'd take a PR too if I can have two things. ;)

  2. I just want a successful fun-filled trip with my family. One we can remember forever.

    Love this post!

  3. I love your wish list! I'm not sure of mine yet...gotta do some more thinking!

  4. 'Tis the season to be busy, fa la la la la....

    I'm asking Santa for a SURPRISE. I love love to be surprised and hate to know gifts in advance, even if it means I don't get what I secretly desire. If "Santa" DOES get exactly what I wish for without me asking ... well, there is nothing better. :)

    Hope you get what you are wishing for!

  5. Fun weekend! May all of your wishes come true!

  6. Nice weekend - sometimes the unplanned ones are the best! Glad you got your miles in ;)
    And your kiddo's are soooo adorable!

  7. Sounds like it was a good weekend!! I really like what your asking Santa for so I am dittoing! Hope you don't mind.. :)

  8. Wish list: my mom to stay healthy
    lots of great races in 2011
    injury free 2011
    this calf strain healing quickly

    a new pair of Newtons ;)

    May all your Santa wishes come true! :)

  9. Did you get a chance to sit on Santa's lap, ho, ho, ho? Did he wear running shoes? Do his reindeer tempo fly?
    Love your race sked.
    Would also love to hear more about how you train, how much long distance you put in, do you do speed work, intervals, etc.
    Inquiring minds want to know, hee, hee.
    Thanks and happy running!

  10. I've got this nice backpack/hydration pack combo on my list. I need a new light for nights on the trails as well.:)
