If you are like me, you have definitely consumed more than your share of Turkey and Christmas leftovers by now. :D I have really been enjoying Turkey Sandwiches as a way of refuelling post-run these days.
What's your favourite Christmas food been this year?
Don't tell Matt, but I have been playing a song on repeat these past few days that he said I'd 'love' and I promised that I most certainly would not! LOL. This is not a brand new song, but it's brand new to my running playlist. It's "The Monster," by Eminem ft. Rihanna. I have a few Eminem songs on my ipod, but I am really not a Rihanna fan. I'm sorry to all the "I <3 Rihanna" fans out there! Definitely my favourite on the run song these days. Did you know that Eminem also runs?! :)
So today I braved the crowds and headed to the Mall to get my watch sized. This was most certainly the craziest day (people wise) I have ever stepped foot into the mall! :0 Clearly I would need reinforcements. Say 'hello' to Candy Cane Hot Chocolate a la whip cream :D
It was such a beautiful Winter's day outside. Check out how much snow fell:
It was so gorgeous out I decided to go for a super short easy run. I saw Heidi and Sadie along the way!

I am gladly entering 'Training Mode' after many days of indulgence. I've been pretty good in terms of treating myself, but there's always room for improvement.
For breakfast today I mixed Oatmeal with Qia and then added some blueberries. This reliable breakfast powers my running like none other. It goes very well with coffee of course. ;)
I sported this new hoodie from Gap Fit today. The Hungry Runner Girl mentioned this hoodie on her blog a while back and I thought "if she recommends it, it must be good!" To my surprise we had them here in Canada too.....of course I bought one. :D
When I woke up today I was very eager to go run. And when I was running, I didn't want to go home. :) Before I knew it I was over 7 miles so I decided to clock it as a day at 10. The roads were partially snow covered but totally 'runnable.' I saw one other runner today. That was it. Well two if you count the dog he was with....hehe.
Check out this shot I snapped by pure accident. I thought it was pretty cool.
Here's what I was actually trying to get.....lol.

I really want to thank ABK for introducing me to the Daily Mile! I have just started using it and am pretty sure I'm already addicted. :D It is a shame that I just started using it during the last week of the year though....lol.
And just to make you smile....................
I hope you enjoy the rest of your Saturday. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Running,Heather :)
