For Christmas, I really scored well. I got new trail running shoes and they're feeling great around the house as I try to break them in. I also got a pair of gaiters, TWO headlamps, and a Browning A-Bolt 270 Rifle for deer hunting. Last year's mishap will not repeat itself.
My favorite gift? Ellie framed some of my marathon medals into a shadow box:
L-R:Cincinnati Flying Pig, Chicago, Las Vegas, Green Bay, Chicago, Green Bay, Chicago, Door County Fall 50.
As I close this post, the words needed to describe how blessed I've been in 2007 escape me. Perhaps my dad's favorite expression works best: Life is good.
Always remember who makes this season so important.
