Okay folks, we're two days into the work week....we got this! My Holiday break is in T-3 days!!!
I was totally excited when Leigh mentioned the Canadian Blogger Christmas Swap! I had never ever taken part in one of these, obviously because I've only been blogging since February! LOL. My package arrived today!!! Lianne sent along this totally fabulous Christmas ornament, which may or may not have made me squeal when I opened it.....lol. I love how my little runner has earphones and a stylin' pony tail too. :) She also sent along a card that I'm pretty sure this crafty lady made herself and is amazing! Thanks so much Lianne! Hop on over and check out her page will ya'?
If you recall on Sunday here in Nova Scotia, we had a ginormous snow storm and I was forced to miss out on a long run and resort to the dreadmill??? I say that jokingly of course since I was forever grateful for the treadmill when the streets outside were of skating rink caliber! P.S. We are getting more snow tonight and an even bigger storm this coming Sunday! :(
Because of the storm, the streets and sidewalks were absolutely treacherous on Monday. Driving to and from work was a real challenge which made me appreciate the fact that day 1 of my 18 week Marathon Training Program started with 'Cross training/strength!' I worked out at home for about an hour with ab and arm exercises. Watching ELF made the workout fly by! LOL. One of my favourite lines from the film: "I'm a cotton headed ninny muggins," LOL!!!
Still totally slippery and dangerous outside today from all of the ice. :( But, Yay for my Yak Tracks!!!
My schedule called for a 3 mile run today. I took it nice and easy in fear of face planting on the street. Yep, it's that crazy out. But oh my, did it ever feel good to get out and RUN!
Check out my mini-tree on the front steps...hehe. :D

I'm so glad you popped by for a visit with GGR! Have a wonderful evening!
Mother Nature is not getting a Christmas Card from me. That is all.
