What a week!

The last time I posted was about my ride with RBR and the REI Christmas party. I can't believe all the stuff I have done just since then. OMG!

I worked Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday morning, very early, Sara and I flew down to Disneyland. She loves Disneyland and has never seen it decorated for Christmas. Her boyfriend paid for her airline ticket, park admission and the hotel room. He had no desire to go with her so she was generous enough to invite me and I gladly accepted. It was beautiful. We had a great time together and the crowds were minimal. The fireworks were spectacular. I have never seen any show as nice as that one was.




We flew home Thursday afternoon and I worked until 9:30 on Friday night. Saturday I did some Christmas shopping. After sitting down and figuring out what I need to buy, it's really not that bad. I can say I'm almost done already!
Saturday night Keith and I went to Victoria's 2009 Sugarfest. How could I possibly turn this invitation down? The invitation stated we were to dress in our favorite fancy clothes, bring a dessert and come have fun. Okay! It was so great to see all the fellow trail running people in "clothes". Some of them clean up quite well, I must say. The funny part was seeing the women (myself included) walking around in high heels. You could tell none of us do that for a living. Well, what I mean by that is none of us wear them to an office on a daily basis!

My Angel Island 50k buddy, Theresa

The man I adore so very much!

Last night it was family time on the train. We took the Train of Lights through Niles Canyon. We bought these tickets quite a while ago and were so happy it didn't rain. It's been raining pretty good here for the last few days. Sara's boyfriend Sterling was supposed to go with us but ended up being scheduled for work. My brother, Steve stepped in at the last minute and took our extra ticket. It was a nice evening. ;)





I'm scheduled for work Monday through Friday again this week, starting in the morning so I can't see getting any running in. I have a PCTR event on the calendar Saturday. An 8k with "someone that just qualified for Boston." That should be fun!! I am thinking I will have to go the gym in the evening to do some classes this week, just to burn some calories. It's not my first choice but it works.
I hope I don't go crazy this week!



Until later.............

I was thinking the same thing Saturday night at our Holiday party for the triathlon club - people cleaned up well, especially the women. I will be there at Rodeo Beach volunteering. I haven't run since the Northface race, last, last Saturday and the dancing Saturday night was the longest workout of my week. Scary how easy it is for me to slip back into couch potato mode.

You're right. Everyone looked adorable. I was impressed with the number of beautiful people I apparently know. Glad you could come, though!!

Will have to make a trip to Disneyland this time of year sometime...looks really pretty--and no crowds would be great...it's been probably 35-40 yrs since I have been there! See you (& Rick-yay-thanks for volunteering!) Saturday.

Hey- found your blog through Aron!

Classes at the gym aren't my first choice but they do burn some calories!!! Sometimes, we gotta do what we gotta do!
