1) December is here already! I can't believe it! We've watched Rudolph and the kids have written their Christmas lists (which are updated daily). A fun tradition we started last year was the countdown to Christmas with these stockings:
2) On the running front (this is supposed to be a running blog, right?) I'm making some progress with this injury (plantar fasciitis - for those new to the blog). I've been running with walking intervals mixed in and this seems to work. I can run pain free this way because my foot is good and warmed up if I walk 1/2 mile before I start running. I'm still working on keeping my foot stretched out AFTER the run, but it's getting easier to do this. I'm optimistic even though the progress has been much slower than I anticipated.
3) What I'm reading now:
4) What did you do with your leftover turkey this year? I used mine to make this chili from Jenna at Eat Live Run (great site, lots of good recipes):
|Creamy White Chicken Chili|
I also made this pot pie recipe that I got from an episode of the Oprah show by Cristina Ferrare (sniff...I miss you Oprah!)...
|Chicken Pot Pie with Cornbread crust|
5) Here's a little motivation for Friday and everyone racing this weekend. I originally saw this when XLMIC posted it on her blog, and I love it. Great reminder that even if you fall to pick yourself up and keep pushing on.
