Runner's Christmas

Today all I could think about all day at work was running.  I was really excited to go after work for some reason.  At first I thought I would just do my usual 4 mile loop because the sky was looking a little ominous.

But I checked the weather and it said it wasn't supposed to rain, so I decided to extend my normal run.  I ran 5.12 miles in 46 minutes right at a 9 minute mile pace. Perfect!

Nope I'm not flashing my bling like Matt thought lol, I'm showing off my 5 miles!!  PS that's my work behind me.  People were probably looking out the window wondering what freak was sitting on the sidewalk taking pictures of themselves  while stretching.  Good thing nobody ever notices me when I get back from my runs.  I guess I look pretty different when I'm a sweaty hot mess from when I'm in my semi put together work gear.

When I got home I saw that Matt got a pretty package in the mail.  He "won" a garmin forerunner 405 CX on ebay.  I basically freaked when I saw it.  I think it finally pushed me to buy my own.  A couple of weeks ago I saw on skinnyrunner that she gets her garmin 405 from walmart, so I obviously went online and took a look. It was the cheapest I had found it so far.  So after going back and forth a million times and trying to come up with some made up occasion/holiday so that I could convince myslef to buy it (3 years since I graduated college!! happy wedding to me!!??),  I finally went for it!  MY GARMIN IS ON ITS WAY!!!  I'm so excited to not use my phone anymore of a gps. 
hello lover!!

I'm off from work tomorrow in preparations for my bridal shower Saturday afternoon. Since I have the time I'm planning on making myself a special breakfast.  Carrots 'N' Cake's Pumpkin Protein Pancakes.  Then I have a trip to Cosco in order and am going to get my nails done for the first time in.....3 years.  I'm not the pampering type, what can I say.
