Happy holiday hangover! You tired? I’m tired. The holidays wiped me out and I’m so happy that I can attempt to catch up on sleep this week. I had an absolutely wonderful Christmas and everything that goes with it: food, drink, presents, lack of sleep, etc.

I finally got a new Garmin which is pretty awesome because I was previously using the Flintstone version that may or may not have had an actual bird inside keeping my pace with his beak.

“Hey lady, move your slow ass.”

I opted for the 305 because I didn’t want to blow my mind by jumping way up to the newest model and the price for the 305 is very reasonable. I also liked the features it offered and read about a billion reviews before deciding. I know everyone has different opinions on GPS watches and ultimately you just have to find the one that works best for you. I waited so long to get a new one because the 101 works just fine but I did want one that holds the pace versus moving up and down all the time. Stupid bird.

My long run on Saturday (18 miles) went amazingly well and I’ve got another 22 miler on deck for this weekend. I’ll be taking a humongous nap afterward so that I am fully rested for the New Year’s Eve festivities.

Speaking of New Year’s Eve, I’ve decided that one of my resolutions will be to work on my patience. I struggle with being patient in everyday life, especially while driving or waiting in line or dealing with idiots people. I know I could do better with this since I regularly startle myself with obscenities while driving. I know! I’m awful! I swear I’m going to work on it. Ok, well not the swearing part but you know what I mean.

What are your New Year’s Resolutions? Are they more “health” oriented than mine?
