Half Marathon Mondays... 8 miles

Hi friends!!

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! We enjoyed every minute (well maybe not those in the car) of our holiday... Santa was good to us and it was wonderful to celebrate with family. We are extremely blessed.

All of the food and cheer(s) definitely made today's run difficult. We had to run EIGHT MILES... the day after Christmas. I am certain that I must be a masochist or something. Who does that to themselves?!? WE.DO.

Surpisingly we did well for that long of a run. We finished the eight miles in 1:26. I'll TAKE IT!

This was the view the whole way...

Well it was until it got dark. We didn't realize how late it had gotten and we were still out there after sun down. I WAS SO SCARED. I don't like running the trail in the dark. That definitely won't be happening again.

Hubs got a Nike hydration belt for Christmas from Santa Claus. He was so excited to take it out, and he is loving his as much as I love mine.

Tomorrow we both have to go back to work... wish we had just a few more days to relax. We also need to finish up our bathroom. Oh well, we will get to it when we can. Hope y'all have a great week ahead! Talk soon, friends! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
