Five Things Friday

It’s been a busy week around here and I’m really looking forward to a nice, relaxing weekend with Adam and my little ones.  Oh, who am I kidding, it’s not likely to be relaxing, but I’m looking forward to hanging out with them and finishing up our Christmas decorating.  Braden requested pancakes for breakfast tomorrow morning too — definitely looking forward to that!

1. Speaking of Christmas.. I have not bought a single gift yet.  I’m usually almost done by now, but I’m stuck and have no clue what I want or what to get for the kids.  If you’re buying for little ones, what are they asking for this year?

2.  Braden only has two weeks of school left before his Christmas break starts and I can’t wait.  Since I work from home, I have a lot of fun stuff planned to keep him busy during the day while I’m working.  I’m thinking of taking a day off to sneak off to Disney World with him too.. he loves going and hasn’t been since early in October.

3.  What the heck is up with this weather?  Seriously, the high here today is 82.  In December.  I want it to cool down so it actually feels like Christmas.  With Thanksgiving being so late this year and work being so busy, I feel like the holiday season is just kind of blah.  The warm weather is not helping put me in the holiday mood.  I can’t have a fire and hot apple cider when it’s 80 out!

4.  I haven’t run since the race on Sunday.  I was going to go last night, I’m not sore anymore and feel totally back to normal, but Adam needed to run and I got caught up in cleaning so I skipped it.  I need to figure out what to do between now and my next marathon, which is just over five weeks away – yikes!  Thankfully I have a friend who is also a running coach, so I’ll be calling him in the next few days for advice!

5.  I’m getting really excited for the ZOOMA race in January!  We have a group training run coming up next weekend, then another the weekend before Christmas (let me know if you want to attend and I’ll send you the invites!).  We’re also planning a happy hour with the Jax chapter of Moms Run This Town (which is open to non-members too!) on January 4th and I’m really looking forward to it all!

They sent out an email earlier this week with some of their swag and they’re spoiling us!  All participants will get a swag bag with a great tech tee, Feetures! socks, and a special surprise from Moving Comfort.  I can’t wait to see what the surprise is, they haven’t told the ambassadors what it is so we’ll be surprised right along with y’all!

If you want to run ZOOMA Florida with me, use code FLAAMB5 to save 10% off the race fee!

    Jealous of your weather- in Ohio, we’re watching rain/sleet/ice/snow fall from the sky. It can’t seem to figure out what it wants to do! Wanna trade? ;)

    • Yes, I want to trade! I want some winter-y weather, een if it is sleet and ice!

      My 5-year-old keeps asking me when it is going to snow, like on the Christmas movies. It kills me to tell him that it pretty much never snows here in Florida!
