Walked dog -
Have you got in on the Oakley sunglasses giveaway? Get on it!
Yesterday the Halloween decorations went down…
Which means Christmas decorations have starting going up…
oh lordy. on November 2nd.
In all fairness, my neighbor made this wreath (it has white crystal-type rocks on it that you can’t really see) and I didn’t want the door hook to be empty once I took the Halloween wreath off. Taking the hook off the door would seem to be a simple solution, but I don’t do simple… or logical or practical…
But I feel good about my November 2nd wreathing because yesterday we received our first Christmas card in the mail! The Salvation Army is all over their cards this year.
I usually tape all the cards on this tile wall (the man loves that, I bet), or at least when I’m feeling confident about our number of friends and acquaintances.
By the way, just in case you want to know, DirectTV now has the Holiday & Happenings station playing. Not that I’d know or anything. nope, not me.
After some quick searching and emailing, I’m going to run the Santa Clarita Marathon tomorrow with a couple friends. I didn’t even know about it until yesterday morning, but it should be a good run hopefully.
If you’re looking for a new race, reader Erin emailed me that the BCS Marathon on December 9 in Bryan/College Station, Texas. They will offer discounted registration for NYCM runners:
“We are extending an offer to run the BCS Marathon or Half Marathon for just $25 if you can show us an entry confirmation from this year’s NYC Marathon.
Email us those at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a very tough situation for all involved, and our thoughts and prayers continue to go to the victims of the hurricane.”
Has anyone else heard of any other races doing anything specific for the NYCM runners or just other possible races in the next few weeks?
One last thing: if you’d like to get an SR shirt (the hot pink and grey shirts here) I will donate 100% of the profits to the Red Cross NY. Just email me at email@example.com to make sure I have your size.
