I cannot believe that it’s already time to write this post. Christmas is NEXT WEEK, ya’ll! This year has been an absolute blur. I feel like just yesterday I was so excited about being cast in Legally Blonde, or Chess, and now all of a sudden it’s the Christmas season and once again, I’m woefully behind in my Christmas shopping.
But hey, it’s ok, it’ll get done. It always does. Maybe with a little more stress and spending a bit more than I’d like, but what can I say except, it’s Christmas, and we’re all in misery (name that movie!).
Anywho, just like last year, I wanted to take the time to put out my holiday wish list. Some of it’s running related, and some of it’s not. I also know that some of them will likely be under the Christmas tree on December 25, and some of them I’ll just have to suck it up and buy like the grown-ass woman I am. But a girl can dream, right?
The “Lauren” Clutch from Hobo
I have coveted one of these clutches for years, but always balked at the price tag. This year, I actually told my parents that this was the ONLY thing I wanted, and to please forgo all the tchtochkees and doodads and bath products I’ll never use, and just get me this one thing. I am hopeful that this will soon be mine.
The “Believe” Training Journal
I go through phases with journals. I’m usually really excited about them when I first get them and write every day, and then my excitement wanes, and I fall out of the habit for a while, and then a few months go by and I start up again with renewed vigor. I really want a personal documentation of the training I do for my first marathon, and while this blog is a great way to share with friends and family, I will want something more personal and private as well. This fits the bill.
I don’t have that many running socks, and truth be told, at least two pairs NEED to be thrown away. But because I don’t have many, I keep wearing them. Not good when I’m about to start marathon training. I’m not particular to any brand or style, but I definitely need something moisture-wicking and preferably with a bit of cushion for my blister-prone feet. I’ve heard great things about Bombas, Swiftwick, and Feetures, but never tried any of them.
“I Believe in the Blerch” Shirt
If you are at all familiar with the Oatmeal, you know who the Blerch is. If you don’t, click here and read about him. It’s brilliant.
“Cheers to Beer” Running Socks
Seriously, how cute are these socks? And if you know me at all, you know I love me an ice-cold beer after a tough run.
New Winter Boots
I have some that are ok, but they don’t come up really high, so if we get more than a few inches of snow, I get wet feet. I’d love to have some Sorrells, but they’re pretty spendy.
I rarely go to Starbucks anymore because it’s just too expensive. But I LOVE all of their delicious seasonal drinks, and a giftcard for a few bucks would allow me to treat myself more than I’m usually willing to.
What’s the number one thing you’re hoping to find under your Christmas tree this year?
