Another Christmas has come and gone, but happily the holiday celebration continues! We still have New Year’s Eve coming up!
We had a wonderful Christmas weekend, and Santa was super generous this year. AJ got his very first desktop computer, but to be fair, he had saved his money and paid for half of it while James paid for the rest and bought him the monitor. He’s one happy gamer.
And I actually got the Go Pro I asked for with a helmet mount. I tested it out on my run today and snapped a few pictures. I wore it on my head over my visor and it did get a little heavy on my forehead after the first hour of running, but it was tons of fun to play with.
I’m not too keen on the fish bowl effect, but I guess all you have to do is change the aspect ratio, although I need to figure out which is which. I’m not a photographer in any shape or form, so it’s something to be researched. On my next run, I’ll try out the video part of it.
Speaking of running, I’m completely healthy now and have recovered from whatever winter bug was going around. Hence, back to my long runs on Sunday. And as there are only 21 days until my Maui Half, that’s a really good thing. I was almost concerned. I managed 118 minutes of activity today with most of it running. The wonderful thing is that my legs were strong, whereas last week when I first went out, they felt like floppy noodles. I’m beginning to think I wasn’t fully recovered at that point as that just didn’t make sense when they were completely rested. Anyhoo, I didn’t go full out, but I’m so excited that the little graph thingy shows me running more than walking. When I first began this journey back in July, I was nowhere near that ratio, and I love to see improvement in black and white and on charts and graphs, not only from how I feel. Again, today I am thankful for that stoopid treadmill and my forced interval training.

Anyone ever play frisbee golf? The above is a frisbee golf park. I passed it on my run. Right down the street from it is a game store that sells specialized frisbees specifically for this sport. They’re hard little disks, not the usual frisbees you’d toss for your dog to catch. I’ve not tried it yet, but maybe one day.
Above is a charming little house out in the middle of nowhere across from the trail. Lots of room for a little animal farm, goats, chickens, a couple of cows…
Okay, I didn’t take this one with the Go Pro… it’s just Jamesy all decked out for watching the ‘Hawks. But we won’t talk about that…
Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Stay healthy out there… I’m seeing lots of little germy bugs going on everywhere!
What are your plans for New Year’s? Will you be running January 1st?
