Is it too early to share my running Santa list with you?
I’ve been a good girl
sometimes this year, and I have tried my hardest to run well, eat well and blog well. Here are the top five things on my Christmas Wish List:
1. Nike Shield LunarGlides. My fave shoes, waterproofed and reflective. What’s not to love?
2. Ron Hill Vizion Photon Jacket. This is flattering, water and wind tight. And pink. Lovely!
3. Ron Hill LED running cap. Perfect for running on dark nights 😉
4. Lock laces. No more lace malfunctions during runs. Genius!
5. Saucony ladies ruched hoody. Comfy and stylish. My two faves rolled into one!
Santa, do you mind if I sneak in a sixth favourite? If you can’t decide which of these I deserve, these would be good too:
Thank you very much. I’ll remember to leave you a glass of sherry and a mince pie on Christmas Eve, I promise.
What’s on your Christmas running wish list this year?
Thanks to the wonderful ladies on the fabulous Facebook group Run Mummy Run (yes, I know I’m not a mummy, but they are a very friendly lot, and they let us non-mummies take part 😉 ) I found myself rushing to Aldi last Friday night.
Now, I don’t usually find myself rushing out to discount supermarkets very often, especially not on a Friday evening, when I have wine chilling in the fridge.
But, I had read on a few of the member’s posts that they had a fab, and pretty cheap, range of running gear for the winter on sale. WHAT? Yes. Exactly.
Now I’m sure you understand why this led to me cancelling all other plans, and instructing @TheWelshWookie to drive the 1 1/4 hours to Oban, home of our nearest Aldi.
Because that’s exactly what we did.
A fetching fluorescent yellow technical Tshirt, a pink long sleeved compression top, a grey/pink compession base layer set ( shorts and vest), a pair of short compression socks and some fuorescent armbands, with LED lights. Bargain!
@TheWelshWookie also got a ton of stuff.
I’m looking forward to road testing it, so I’ll keep you posted as to how I find it!
I know that I’m very lucky, since @TheWelshWookie supports my running, and also runs with me.
For my birthday last year he got me my Nike LunaryFly GTX:
I love these shoes, they’re great!
This year, he got me a new Ron Hill running jacket; perfect timing, since the weather has definitely turned cooler!
Thanks, Wookie! I love it! I know I’ll get great use out of it now, and again in the spring.
I also received another wonderful surprise last night: I PLACED in a run! I was the third female across the line at the CowalFest 5K on Saturday! I’m going to be crowing about this for a long time 😀
The plan for the rest of my birthday is playing football with my nephews, dinner at the cafe, and more Harry Potter. And perhaps a celebratory glass of vino!
