About Me

Hi, I'm Whitney! I am a middle of the pack runner who discovered the fun of triathlons in 2009. Join me in my adventures in life and training. I run with the Rush Running team and enjoy the fun that comes with such a supportive group of friends who understand what running means to me. I'm newly discovering road biking and the fun that it entails.

Secret Santa Reveal!

Thanks to Jill at Run With Jill for hosting the 2nd Annual Holiday Blogger Gift Exchange.  I was super excited to receive my gift in the mail.  My secret Santa did a great job and I loved the new "stockings" that she sent! I have always loved the joy of unwrapping small, fun presents from my Christmas stocking on Christmas morning and felt a little guilty for opening this one early. 

Below is the bounty that Julie at You Just have to TRI! sent.

The Honey Stinger goodies were all stuffed inside the fuzzy striped socks.  I love Honey Stinger products but actually have never tried their bars or gels.  I fell in love with the waffles first and then the gel chews.  I can't wait to try them out on my next run.  The waffle cookies rock!

The Biker Chick socks are super cute and remind me of a friend that bikes.  She helped introduce me to the sport and when I first bought my bike she told me that I absolutely had to have fun socks for cycling.  I think she would approve of these!

Thanks Julie! And thanks again to Jill for all the organizing!

Above is a picture of my real Christmas stocking.  Everyone in my family has the same stocking which were made for us by a friend of our grandmother's.  Now the tradition has been carried on by one of my aunts who has made them for my nieces and nephews as well as my cousins' children.  Every year when I put my stocking up I feel connected to my family knowing that they all have the same stockings hung by care on their mantels. 

I hope you had a great Christmas and Santa was good to you too!
