Busy Little Elves

Guess what? Yesterday was my last day of work for the rest of the year! YESSSS!

Adam and I are busy little elves running around doing last minute Christmas errands (as usual). We’re also going to the greyhound rescue today to give gifts to Duke and his friends!

Before we head off I just wanted to pop in and say MERRY CHRISTMAS to all (and Happy Holidays to those who celebrate something different)!


The high today is 81 degrees so it definitely feels like a Florida Christmas.

Last Sunday Adam had to deal with emergency work stuff last minute and couldn’t come to the race with me (which was a total bummer because he was supposed to run it too).

When I got home he had this waiting for me:


The Lauren Fleshman Believe training journal!

Adam said he knew I would PR :). I am glad he was that confident in me because like usual I awoke on race morning and thought about not going. I don’t deal with 5K race day pressure very well!

Even though that was a race day gift I kind of consider it my first Christmas gift of the year!

Cecil is very excited about Christmas and has already conked out hoping when he wakes up from his nap Santa Paws will have delivered him everything on his wish list!

(He also wanted me to say a special Merry Christmas to the other four legged run blog kids: Christmas & Jelly, ย Lola, Archie,ย Django, ย Shrek and Zoey, Benny, Bear, Finn and Lacy and everyone else!)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! I hope you have a great day!

    That was such a sweet surprise from Adam!

    It’s gloomy and windy where we are right now…that’s closer to snowy Christmas weather, right? Lol

    Archie technically has two legs but is very thankful for the holiday wishes and tells Cecil Merry Christmas!
