Free Pass

What am I doing to fill all the time I would normally be running? Well I just finished hauling my Christmas decorations upstairs: 13 bins, the Christmas tree box, and five garbage bags containing wreaths and garland. I tallied up the time I spent over the past three days getting it into the bins, box and bags: just over FIVE hours. That's a lot of running.

So I set up an I Have Run Facebook page. You can click on the badge on my sidebar to become a fan. Yes, I am a copycat. The idea came from Morgan, Aron, Beth and Heather, who also have Facebook pages that I highly recommend becoming a fan of too! (I'm sure there are others, so be sure to let me know if you have a Facebook page.)

And I must say you guys rock!! Your comments on yesterday's post made me smile so much my cheeks hurt, and I literally laughed out loud at several of them. Then I thought of all your comments again when I read today's Daily Kick in the Butt quote:

At first an ordeal and then an accomplishment, the daily run becomes a staple,
like bread, or wine, a fine marriage, or air. It is also a free pass to friendship.
-Benjamin Cheever, Strides


  1. OOhh! Great quote!
    Sounds like you had a pretty good workout with your Christmas decors!!LOL!

  2. Nice FB page! Love the kick in the ass quote.

  3. I'll have to check out your Facebook page! :) I wonder how many calories you can burn by putting away decorations and hauling them up the stairs. Lots, I bet!

  4. I really liked reading your first marathon experience! Way to go! I think finding that perfect combination of drinking and gels is really hard. Trial and error. And I'm such an experienced IT band sufferer. It sucks. I'm glad you found a good PT to get it all worked out. I live close to Logan in BC so maybe we're "run" into each other one of these days. And I loved that kick in the butt quote. Most of them I just quickly delete but I saved that one in my e-mail.


I love your comments! They make my day, so be sure to let me know you stopped by. And I always try to respond to your comments, so let me know if you have any questions for me or if there is anything you want to see on here!
