Weekly Roundup - November 24th

The holidays are fast approaching and so is Dopey Challenge!  This week was a first for me with 4 days in a row of running/walking to be prepared for the WDW race weekend in January. Today I will be pounding the pavement for 16 miles and Christine has 10 on her training plan.

Besides tons of running, I have started to get organized for the holidays. I actually did some Christmas decorating, gasp, which is something I have never done before Thanksgiving. However, with a late Thanksgiving this year and a volunteer commitment on December 5th that involves loads of preparation, this seemed like a good idea. And lets face it, since I am not hosting Thanksgiving this week, who cares?  The only one that knows I have decorated is Tom.  Oh wait, there was a question at a party last Saturday night, "Who has already started to decorate for Christmas?"  It was a fun game and yes, I had to fess up to being that girl who had already gotten out my decor for the Christmas holiday!  Tom had told his golf group, and so the word spread! I'm not sharing any decorated house photos yet, but here is a glimpse at Lulu with one of her favorite holiday toys! She even got in on the early Christmas decorating!
Waiting for some new Christmas toys

This week Christine addressed some tricky subjects on the blog, loss of motivation while training for Dopey and weight loss during marathon training. I was fortunate to be covering more fun topics such as runner friends at Disney races and a giveaway!  By the way, you have a few more days to enter our giveaway here!


  1. I don't usually put up Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving as well, but my husband and I decided to today! We have a busy week/weekend coming up and so it made sense to do it today. I am actually still wearing my Texas Tech santa hat while commenting right now lol!! Hope y'all have a great week!

    1. Thanks Lauren. Have a very happy Thanksgiving. I noticed alot of people had started their decorating when I was on my morning run today!

  2. You ladies can't stop, won't stop! Awesome!
