Before we get to the winner (finally) of the Spartan race entry giveaway, here's a little throwback to The Runner's Jingle Bells - Half Marathon Edition, which I wrote and posted on the blog two years ago:
Dashing through the snow,
On a thirteen (.1) mile run.
O'er the hills we go,
Racing is so fun.
As my iPod plays,
Helping miles pass,
Oh what fun it is to run,
I hope I'm not in last.
Running fast, running far,
Running all the way.
I can see the finish line,
Just half a mile away.
And the winner of the Spartan Race Giveaway:

After five fun-filled family days, I am a little behind on things. One of the things that was overlooked during all the fun was a reminder that the end of the Spartan Race Entry Giveaway was nearing. And is now upon us. Instead of announcing the winner, I am extending the deadline until the end of this week (Friday, Dec. 6)!! So enter now. And don't forget to watch the World Championship Spartan Race on NBC Sports this Saturday.
I hope you all had perfect Thanksgiving holidays. Mine was amazing. I ran the Thankful 13 half marathon and really just ran completely for fun. I even stopped to get some love from my family. Nothing beats seeing their faces unexpectedly during the race and getting hugs at the finish.
Dinner at the restaurant was yummy, even if it wasn't exactly a traditional Thanksgiving meal. And the rest of the weekend was full of family, games, goodies and a little shopping.
One of the weekend's highlights was putting up and decorating our tree. The rest of our house has been decorated for weeks, but we waited until the day after Thanksgiving to get our tree.
Now I'm in full Christmas mode!! Counting down the days, eating all things candy cane and doing plenty of shopping.
