santa must be a runner

my tree topper even glows

i think some of my running company friends took pity on me and my hemorrhaging bank account last week as i was treated to a package-filled-porch. i won some speed laces from dorothy of mile posts, a package of honeymilk came just in time as i was starting to run low (horrors!) and now that josh is also running we can never have too much gu energy here in the ctk house (from kenley of the essence of running).

while decorating the tree with gu "ornaments" i may or may not have eaten a pack of chomps. thanks dorothy, honeymilk and kenley!


disclaimer about our charlie brown tree: my friend went up to the farm in nc and apparently this one's original owner wasn't able to pick it up, so she brought it back for us. yup, we got the reject tree. it worked out though because i don't have enough ornaments for a 6+ footer and i refuse to buy generic balls from the store. i like my ornaments to have a little meaning behind them.

    I read that last line to say, "I like my balls to have a little meaning behind them."

    Yes, I'm 4 years old today :)

  6. Shannon just about made me spit my coffee out.....now that is funny.

    I am loving the tree. Might be the theme for us next year....nothing like stolen ideas for Christmas.

  9. Love the tree and love ornaments that mean something. My parents gave me and my sibs an ornament every Christmas for that reason

  11. Love the tree! And I am going through a chomp phase. I love that I don't have to commit to eating the entire packet, like I have to with gels:)

  12. That's a great tree and the decorations are perfect! You can grab a gu on the way out for a run, very convenient.:)

  17. Of course he is a runner, he must be a runner to deliver all those gifts in such a record time.

  18. A runner santa? Maybe but the figure is not the kenyan, my god!

    Beautiful tree Lindsay better than my!

    You make me laugh with your post!

  19. What's wrong with meaningless balls? Is there any other kind?

    I'm thinking of slapping my medals up on the tree so I can at least look at the daggone things once a year ;)

  20. I love your tree! I'm adding some GU to ours tonight! Don't know what the rest of the family will say, but who cares?

  21. At least you have a tree! I've been so busy finding puns that I've let it slip. Getting all sorts of heat from the wife and kiddos......

  22. Well, I have some of the generic balls from the store - but they are in blue and purple, and the white ones I've had since I was single before, so those have special meaning, I guess you could say. I do have some ornaments on my tree too, that have meaning to me too. Don't knock your tree, I think it was quite adorable. Very manageable. By the time you and Josh have your 25th wedding anniversary, you might get those marathon ornaments done! :-)

    and thanks for sharing the honeymilk with me!!
