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.

Merry Blog-mas and Happy Christmas too!

Wow...what a great Christmas this year has been.  My weekend has been full of family fun and the only downside has been a nasty cold or sinus infection that I seem to have picked up. 

This year I had two amazing Secret Santas and I want to thank them for the great gifts that they gave to me. 

First up was Shelley with the Christmas Sock Swap sponsored by Courtney.  She picked some cute pink reindeer socks and stuffed them full of goodies.  I loved the new Bondi Band headbands...Live, Laugh, Run and iTri.  Both are perfect for my fitness activities.  There were also some Clif bars, Aquaphor, and an iTunes gift card.  Shelley did great!!!

I also participated in a Secret Santa exchange through Team Tough Chik.  Xanthe was my Secret Santa and she sent me a pair of the Balega socks that I adore.  Literally, this is the only brand of socks that I run in.  It is the perfect blend of cushioning and breathability.  I was so pumped with my new socks and thanked Xanthe on Facebook and she mentioned that I had another surprise headed my way.  The next day I got a box with a case of my favorite Honey Stinger energy chews.  Yeah!!!

I decided to play Santa for myself and picked up an iPad during the post-Thanksgiving day sales.  I have been a very good girl and kept it waiting until today.  So now I need some help...what are your favorite iPad apps?  Are there any good apps for reading the blogs that you follow? 

Merry Christmas!!!

I hope you have enjoyed celebrating with your family and friends this holiday season. 


  1. Glad you got the sock swap package in time for Christmas. And glad you enjoyed it!!
