chore filled weekend with a run in

I had lots of things on my honey-do list and it started Saturday morning at 7. I had to take the beautiful wife's vehicle in to get serviced at 7 am so I woke up early and headed out. I decided to do some Christmas shopping across the street while the shop worked on the vehicle and nothing was open for another hour. So I walked around the plaza planning out the shopping exercise until Target opened at 8. Vehicle was done early and I finished the shopping soon after that. I got home and started on the honey-do list right away. When I was done with setting the TV up, I went for a good 6 mile run in a light mist. Felt great throughout the whole run with 5 miles being my usual route through development, the last mile or so was through the small trail we have in our development. If I run the development trail I usually start with the trail in the first part of the run and finish on the road, so this was different but great. Some of the low areas had mud and water so I had to be careful through there but was nice to get some trail running in. Finished with 6 miles done with a 9:30 pace for the whole run. I started right back up the honey-do list upon my return and didn't stop until dinner time.

Sunday was family time and the big boy and I played outside some and then played with some neighbors inside. We had a blast with our neighbors while catching up with all the goings on. I did not complete the choir list as well as the Christmas shopping so I am a very busy man this week.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas.

Impressive work! Our list usually only gets about 1/3 done, oh well!

Saturday A was pretty cool running weather around here. Glad you got to get that in with all the other stuff.
