I seriously can’t believe it’s already the week of Christmas! How did this happen?! I feel like just yesterday I was cursing the summer heat while marathon training and now it’s freakishly cold in San Diego. I’ve taken to running on the treadmill again (at Fit in Solana Beach) because I can’t seem to muster up the motivation to run outside in the cold when it’s also pitch black because apparently Encinitas doesn’t believe in street lights. <- longest sentence ever?
I talked Brittany into a gym date this past Friday night. Fridays at the gym are the BEST. They’re super quiet (probably because people have more exciting lives than I do) and my favorite treadmill is typically up for grabs. I ran into Sheri and we got to run side-by-side for a few miles – so clearly I’m not the ONLY nerd who hangs out at the gym on Friday nights. 😉
I found a new show that’s perfect for my treadmill time: The Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce. It fills the void that Sex & the City left in my heart. Anyone else watch it?
After an hour or so at the gym, we went to Cinepolis luxury cinemas to see Sisters and it was HILARIOUS. I love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler together. You just can’t go wrong with those two.
Saturday morning was kicked off with another Sheri encounter. She was leading a FitBit local event down at Law Street in Pacific Beach. We went for a run followed by yoga right on the ocean. Basically perfection. Teresa was also along for the fun so we hit up a local coffee shop after for some food and caffeine.
I finally did a little Christmas shopping Saturday and enjoyed a little pre-Christmas celebration since I will be out of town for the real holiday. When Brittany and I finally got home, we lit a fire, put on our jammies and watched some Netflix.
In typical Sunday fashion, I lazed on the couch with a cup of coffee while writing training plans and reading blogs.
I didn’t feel great so I basically downed as much green stuff as possible, ate some chicken noodle soup and then slept for a few hours. Eventually I had the energy to get in a little 7 mile run and topped the night off with a(nother) green smoothie while watching Four Christmases. I think that might be my favorite Christmas movie because … it’s my life. 🙂 Like 100%.
This year I am flying up to NorCal to see my mom and little sister. Originally I thought I’d go up there solo, and to be honest, I was super bummed Brittany wasn’t joining me. We’ve been together 2 1/2 years and we’ve yet to spend a holiday with my family because they’ve always lived 2,000 miles away. My mom recently moved to California so it’s a HUGE deal for me to be able to spend Christmas with her. Brittany surprised me on Friday and let me know that she will be flying in on Friday and spending the weekend with us. Best. Gift. Ever. 🙂
