3 Things Thursday

I have to go to a Meeting about a Meeting and I don't have 3 minutes to rub together today.. UGHO!! So I am going to COPY the format of Morgan, Redhead Running (HERE).. Thanks for the Christmas Card Morgan (Jen)!!

1. The Season of Giveaways on Tall Mom in in full swing. You still have time to enter:
  • Winter Scents Giveaway HERE ends 12/18
  • Loose Knits Giveaway HERE ends 12/19
  • More Giveaways to come in the next few days... Think Tutus, Gu and Quilts.. STAY TUNED!!

2. Special Thanks to Leana for the Calgary and Olympics Themed gift for the Gift Exchange!! (Photo soon) So the FUNNY thing is that I helped J (HERE) come up with the rules for the exchange, one of which was the mail your GIFT in time for Christmas. UMMM...breaking my own rule. I am HOPING to get to the post office today. Sorry Leana!!

3. Went for a 4 mile run with NEGATIVE SPLITS yesterday.. What the What? I am more of a start fast, slow down type of girl. Adding this to my yearly Tally and I have 13 miles left to get to 1,000. I told Muscle Man and he said, "Why don't you try for 1,033?" The man knows my obsession with the number 33. We will see. I think I have roped Zoe into a LONG run with me on Saturday (didn't take any convincing really), so that will chip away the final miles.. YIPPEE!!

I am hoping to be back this afternoon with a Giveaway post. If not...

HAPPY THURSDAY!

Hope the meeting about a meeting is not too boring.

You are really close to the 1000 mile mark. I am sure you'll make it 1033!

Why does the post office have such terrible hours? I am running in the morning and then they are closed before I get out of work! Ugh! I have to get my stuff mailed. I think I can...I think I can...I think I can...

Negative split runs are the best thing ever! Woo hoo!

Runner Leana said...

I'm glad you got it! I can totally relate on being busy. I had a very small window of opportunity to shop for your pressie and get it in the mail.

Good luck with the meeting!

For High Five Friday:

I'm running a 10K Saturday with jingle bells on my shoes, get excited.

I'm having a giveaway (that you have not entered yet!) of an author SIGNED copy of The Runners Rule Book, ends Sunday night!

Cinthia said...

LOVE your cold weather running pics. I live in Alaska and run winter trails and I seriously look just like that. Only my eyes are exposed, and I swear one day they will freeze and fall off (high tomorrow is slated at a balmy -5).
Cheers and happy holiday running,
Cinthia

MCM Mama said...

LOL at 1033. Last year I did 1010.10, this year I wanted to hit 1111, but I'm not going to make it. Maybe I'll borrow the 1033. ;o)

Candice @ I Have Run said...

Congrats on the negative splits!

My exchange gift went in the mail today, so you aren't the only one getting it done at the last minute.

I can't wait to hear about your giveaways!

Zoƫ said...

Yeah, I'm not a tough one to convince! :) You should go for 1033!

Laura said...
