I hope everyone had a JOYOUS Christmas. My celebrations started early since my family and I would be in different places for Christmas this year. (Jeremy and I take turns going to each other’s family’s Christmases.) Last Thursday, we opened presents at my parents’ house. I scored some sweet Ironman gear, and an iPad mini from Mom and Dad!
My precious niece got her first rocking horse and didn’t quite know what to make of it, but I think she liked it. 🙂
Friday was Jeremy’s birthday (33!), and we spent the day traveling to Washington to spend Christmas with his mom and brothers. After 4 hours of flight delays, we finally made it! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HIZZY!!! We went out for a celebratory dinner with the fam.
A big Osborne family Christmas gift this year was tickets to the Sunday Night Football game – Seahawks vs. 49ers! We had an AMAZING time and stayed dry under covered seats.
I spent a lot of time in the kitchen with Jeremy’s mom on Christmas Eve preparing our dinner and Christmas cookies. I made sure there were plenty of tasty vegan options on the table on Christmas Eve and Christmas day. (Stuffing, salads, field roast, veggies, yum!)
It has been raining every day in Washington since we arrived, but I was really hoping for snow…and I woke up to it on Christmas morning!
So happy to have a White Christmas! How did I celebrate? By going for my first ever SNOW RUN (after presents of course)!
I used my new gifts of running gear (Lululemon hat w/ ponytail opening, and RunningSkirts compression socks) and bundled up. I ran for about 25 minutes and figured it was a good thing I made it that long without slipping on the slushy roads. I didn’t feel too cold to run. I was just happy to be running again!
Another cool workout themed gift I got was a medal holder that Jeremy’s mom designed for me! She took the quote from one of my blog entries and personalized it to say “Fatigue Fades. The glory, it lasts forever.” How sweet is that?? I think this gift should become a Christmas tradition. 😉 This is such a cool way to organize my medals! You can even get something similar for bibs.
Happy Holidays! What cool workout gear did you get this Christmas?
