1. Say hello to Marvin the moose!
I saw him in a catalog and I couldn’t resist. When we put up our Christmas decorations in December, he will take up residence in our front yard. Quote from the catalog: “He has tons of personality and is the perfect way to greet your holiday guests.” That’s some great marketing right there. I had to have him.
2. Check out these amazing photos captured at the finish line of the Twin Cities Marathon. Talk about inspiration!
I wonder which face I’ll make next weekend (OMG less than 10 days!!!).
3. A couple articles you may enjoy:
50 Fittest Colleges in America – Guess who’s #1!! I’m not just sharing because of that, though. I think it is really interesting to see which schools made the list and why.
Slow Marathon Runners – My dad sent me this article about slow marathon runners, and one slow marathon runner in particular. As far as I’m concerned the slower you go, the more you’re getting for your marathon dollar!
On a serious note, I don’t have a problem with how fast or slow anyone completes a marathon. Granted, you should probably make sure you can complete the race within the cut off time. But the beauty of road racing and marathoning is that it’s versatile enough to embrace the elite runner as well as your “average Joe.”
If you decorate for the holidays, what is your favorite decoration?
It’s a toss up between my new buddy Marvin and our Christmas tree.
What kind of face do you make when you cross a finish line?
