Happy running!

I hope you all had a great holiday and weekend!

This here Happy Runner sure did. We had a terrific Christmas day spent with tons of family (35 at dinner!). I even got a few (much needed) gifts: a pair of fresh Nike running gloves and a headlamp! Who's the cool runner now, huh? That's right, it's me!

I put the gloves to use this weekend, although I didn't have to wear them for long because it was pretty warm (it was 45 degrees on Sunday). Tonight, I plan to test the headlamp. With all that illumination, the ice can't scare me now!

Although I didn't run on Christmas day, I did run on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday and it felt great to be outdoors. They were good runs -- each right around 5 miles at a nice, easy pace. Totally enjoyable. I love runs like that and to have three in a row? Well, that's the best!

What about you? Did you enjoy some running? Get any fun gear that I should add to my list?

Happy Monday, everyone. Hope you're having a good week!

I ran thursday & saturday. I had all intentions of running christmas day but I let lazy take over - day of rest was my christmas present to myself :)

YAY for new running gear!

Tricia said...

Glad you had a great Christmas and some great runs.

I (finally) got a subscription to Runners World for Christmas. It made me so happy :)

I ran all week with the exception of xmas day, it was just too busy this year. But I did get a pair of bamboo running socks that I can't wait to try out!

Katie said...

ooh you'll have to let us know how you like the new running gloves!

I got some great runs in too- although the tail end of my run on Saturday ended in sleet. It was (weirdly enough) kind of cool!

I got great running stuff too including a new running skirt with a cheetah print (yow-zah). My husband also gave me a snuggie, which was hilarious.I actually really like it b/c I am cold all the time.

Sounds like a great weekend to me! What kind of head lamp did you get? Glad you had a nice Christmas...35 people is a LOT! :)

Glad you got out for a run!
My husband gave me a lot of great running stuff for Christmas - recovery socks, one of those foot massager balls, a new hat, resistance bands to help with strength training & stretching and a jump rope (good cardio workout!)! I'm very excited to try them all out!

Happy Holidays!

Oh boy! 45 degrees is warm!?!?! Yikes.

Glad you got some new gear though. That is always a nice holiday.

Happy Monday to you as well.

Nice! I love my headlamp! I got a new Asics jacket and pants for running in the rain! So excited I won't be a drowned rat evertime I run in the rain! And wow! - 35 at dinner! What a blast!

Jill said...

No new running gear here but I did get an Oregon map, in the chance I'd end up deciding to do the Hood To Coast Relay - which I just decided NOT to do, since it conflicts with another relay I love to do. So map will go back to the store and maybe I'll buy some gel or something. ha. Glad you had a great Christmas - headlamps are pretty fun...oh how dorky we can look for our passion, huh?

Tina said...

Glad you got some good running in and some new running gear, too!

Headlamps are the BEST! True you look a little like a miner...but cars can see you better and YOU can see just about anything!

Heather said...

Glad you had a good Christmas - enjoy that headlamp! Makes a big difference in the dark.

I am glad you had a great holiday and got in a nice run. I ran on the treadmill on Saturday morning. Enjoy your headlamp....they are the best!

Meg Runs said...

I got some cozy running gloves too, I love them! I'm glad you had a fun holiday!

J said...

I got running gloves for christmas too! They will come in handy when the temps drop even more!

Ladybird said...

Did not get out a run but will do extra tomorrow. Love your blog.

Abby said...

I got in a quick three miles with the dogs on Christmas morning, and then Brent and I headed out for another seven out on the trails that afternoon. It was great!

Though I could have used that headlamp... We got back just after dusk, and definitely had a couple close calls with cars cruising too fast down the windy New England roads.

destinationathlete said...

Congrats on such a great couple of days of running - it's always good to have those all in a row!! I've had two good days of running so far (both treadmill though) so I'm hoping tomorrow is another good one!

Very cool gifts too!

MCM Mama said...

Sounds like a lovely Christmas. I didn't get any gear, but I did get the ok to get whatever I "need". LOL And Santa filled my stocking with gu and nuun.

Ms. V. said...

I got no running gear, but I did get in 5 runs for the week. One was totally bunk, but the others worked! Happy for you!

lindsay said...

ohh watch out, a headlamp! stylish ;) we have to toss aside our dork-worries and just do it though, better to be safe! hopefully you'll never have any mishaps with ice, snow, roots, etc now :)

glad you were able to get in some good running over the holiday!

Diana said...

Glad you had a nice Christmas. And, great about the lamp! I hope it works to ward off the fears and just enjoy the run :)
