santa was good to me

even though i was naughty, santa really paid attention this year. he knew my favorite store and exactly what i was drooling over. so without further ado, here’s what i got:

k-swiss 140.6 i have to thank Chloe at Running with a bottle of wine for her post with all kinds of very cool christmas gift ideas. i had no idea this must have apparel even existed but as soon as i saw it, i knew i had to have it and how convenient that the only store that has it, The Ironman 360 Store is a hop, skip, and a jump away from my casa … lucky me!

the next item was also bought at The Ironman 360 Store.

k-swiss back back

and let’s not forget the early christmas present that i got right before thanksgiving:

Mandy-after not the bike, but the Spinergy PBO’s with the carbon spokes. i love them so far. i have had a few requests to write up a review of these wheels and i certainly will as soon as i have had a chance to race them at least once or twice … so around march/april be on the lookout for a review. even if they don’t make me faster, i won’t be heartbroken, or bankrupt, plus, they look more badass than the crap wheels that came on it.

thank you santa! i hope you love the stuff you got as much as i love mine.

i am so ready for this year to be over. not that it was a bad year because it was a GREAT year, maybe the best year of my life and i will review the year in tomorrow’s post, but i am so ready to get focused again and have a routine. all of this free time since the ironman distance race in october is making me CRAZY as hell. i can’t stand myself anymore … uugh!

oh yeah, i almost forgot, santa also brought me a bad cold. i woke on christmas morning with a sore throat and then the rest ran its course. still have a cough but nothing to stop me from training, no way! the worst part, between blowing my nose a thousand times (and i was using Kleenex aloe tissues too) and the wind/cold outside has left my poor face so chapped. it HURTS, so i’ve been lathering on the aquaphor. i’m so shiny!

i hope all of my blog friends had a lovely christmas too. much love and peace out!

  4. The problem with Santa, like most triathletes, is he sets the bar high and challenges himself to exceed it next year. Here is to 2011 for you and the big guy.

  6. I love your Christmas gear. Santa was very, very good to you:)

    I hope you get over the agonies of being sick soon. I've been able to fight germs and am hoping that they will stay on my husband's side of the bed!
