Holiday Wish List

So I think I’ve got a pretty solid plan for Christmas this year considering I don’t have much money. I’ve been feeling a lot better about it recently, which is very good! I love Christmas and being able to shower all my friends and family with gifts, but this year it has been stressing me out more than anything. Something kind of clicked the other day and now I feel a lot more into the holiday spirit. I’m so excited to see the huge lighted tree in Rockefeller tonight, that is one of the coolest things to me in NY!

Anyway, I thought I would share my wish list for Christmas:

  1. A Garmin Forerunner with Heart Rate Monitor

2. A Nice Pea Coat that is really warm

3. These really bright and crazy adidas sneakers

4. Running Hat

5. Running Gloves

That is basically all I want. A few essentials that will keep me happy through the season. Also a warm running jacket would be nice because I am going to be a hardcore winter runner this year! I have to be because I am definitely going to go to the Team in Training meeting tonight and sign up. The Half Marathon will be in March so I must train all winter. I’m really excited to do it!

Team In Training

So, I am all of a sudden thinking about joining Team In Training. It’s an organization that raises money for leukemia through running events. That is only the very small gist of it. I honestly don’t know too much about it, but there is an information session being held in Manhattan tomorrow night that I am going to attend to find out more about it. It sounds like a fun challenge to me to see how much money I can actually raise. I would be running the NYC Half Marathon in March to support it. We will see, the only downside is that it costs $80 to sign up! I’m sure it is well worth it and I know it’s for a good cause, but seriously I am in no shape to be spending any extra money right now. I’m going to go to the meeting tomorrow just to check it out, I may even stop by the Rockefeller Tree lighting when I leave. Although, I’m sure there will be A TON of people there! I’m so excited to be able to see the lighted tree though, Derek and I will definitely be going some night soon to take a look at it! I always think about how it is in ‘Home Alone’ and that is partially the reason I am so excited to see it.

Lunch: Alton Brown style grilled cheese with grated cheese and a side of cinnamon apple sauce.
