A Very Merry Christmas Eve to You!

As per, Lola has been a tremendous help in the gift wrapping extravaganza. ;) 

I noticed something this past week: Everyone keeps asking me if I'm "ready for Christmas?" Each time someone asks me this question, I feel like there is something else I should be doing/buying and I wonder to myself what it is I'm forgetting. I do like a little checklist every single time in my head.  Does that ever happen to you? 

One thing that I am loving when I'm out and about Christmas shopping is the food. :D I made a stop at the Habaneros Gecko Bus on Sunday afternoon and it was delish! Don't worry, one of those was for Matt. ;)

And then yesterday I needed some real good fuel post leg massage if I was going to hit up the mall...gulp. :|  The Wedge never disappoints!

And then look at the goodies offered up at my Physio/Massage office! 

 When I got home I plotted out my training plan for Boston.

It's a complex process you know. ;)

Then I was so motivated to get into it, I even did some lifting and core work! I know....I was just as amazed as you are.
Throwing dog toys while doing core work really is a skill in itself.
 And I did my run for the day: 5 festive miles. :)

 All the planning, shopping and working out sure helped me build an appetite for ela! mmm :D

The FIL and the hubby. :)

Lola sure was a  lazy pup this morning. She must have been getting her rest so she'd be ready for Santa Paws. ;)

Looks like it will be a rainy Christmas this year.

Matt, Lola and I will probably spend much of the evening like this. :) 

Have a very Merry Christmas from GGR & of course Lola. :)

Happy Holidays & Happy Running!
Heather :)


  1. I could NOT stop smiling from that pic of Lola with the bow! LOL! I tried that with Romeo and he panicked and kind of ran in circles...he needs to learn from Lola!

    1. Hi Ali! I do 8 minute abs and a few other extra moves that Matt taught me a few years ago. I also do a few moves which use the dumb bells for the extra kick, lol.

  4. We are thinking alike! I had tacos, cookies and a festive run today :)
