Friday Five!

O • N • E
All my patience, rest and icing has paid off.  My foot is on the mend.  I'm so darn happy to be running again this week. Of all the weeks I need my run, the week of Christmas is it! With travel, shopping and all the hustle-bustle, the holiday season is not exactly my favorite time of year. (what?!)  The next 14 days, my hubby is on vacation, which means my run window is wide open!  Best gift ever.

Christmas Eve morning (Sat), I'm heading out with a couple Sole Sisters to hit 9 miles before the holiday festivities sweep me into a coma.  I'll time the first 5K split for Daily Vitamin F's virtual Christmas 5K. (you can still enter here).  The back half of the run, I'll time separately for Home for the Holidays virtual 10K.  So I guess that means I gotta do 9.3 miles total, huh?

2012 is going to be a great year.  I'm working on my goals, my challenges, my aspirations... and I'm really getting excited for the possibilities of a New Year!  It's official... I'm on the ToughChik Team for 2012!  And you can be too!  They have extended membership signup until Jan. 7, so head over HERE and check out the details.

I'm at 1165 miles for the year.  I was hoping to reach 1200, which means I need 35 miles in the next 8 days.  Can I do it?  Do I want to?  We'll see... Friend me on here and you'll find out when (if) I do!!

Signing off for the weekend... I hope you all have the best Christmas ever!  May you and your family enjoy all the blessings of the holiday.  Next week, I'm excited to write my "best of 2011" that Miss Zippy has challenged us with.  It's been such a fabulous year that it's taken me some thought. 

Merry Fitmas and a Happy New Rear!
