I love Santa

I think Santa made a mistake as I got so many running pressies he obviously thought I have been a very, very good girl!

In no particular order, these were in my stockings:-

- Purple and green thermal jacket

- black/pink leggings

- beanie for these freezing days

- belt for water bottle

- subscription to Womens Running magazine for a year!

Can't wait to try them out. I haven't been for a run since Christmas Eve as we've had a houseful since then but they've left and tomorrow is the day I'm back! Can't wait.

Hope everyone had a fab Christmas and Santa was good to you too.

I'm very excited about the running mag KittyKat and yes will definitely pass on their tips! Just had my porridge and waiting for it to digest before I venture out. It's absolutely stunning here this morning. Sunny, golden and a heavy frost. I'm like a prisoner on the final day - can't wait to get out!

Hi IP! :-)

Santa has brought you lots of really nice things! :-) The magazine subscription is great; if it's anything like Men's Running it will be a good read. I often toy with the idea of buying a copy of Women's Running just to see what it's like............! :D

I got a couple of running calendars from Santa Dearest. :-)

Yes the magazine will be a great gift Miles - it'll be like Christmas every month! I've looked through Men's Running sometimes but it is very much geared for, well, men! I imagine some features are repeated in both.

Enjoy the running calendars. A different picture every month to inspire. What's not to love?

Ooh how lovely! Have you tried any of it out yet :)

Yes. Wore the jacket today as it's thermal and I thought I needed it! The beanie too. They were toasty. Bit of a colour clash with the rest of my outfit but who cares?

What a lucky girl! I shan't ask what you did to deserve all that!!

I subscribed the Women's Running for my wife, and found it s much better than the men's equivalent that I hi-jacked it started reading it myself. An excellent source of information, diets (the recipes are excellent as I recall), exercises and routes. Enjoy reading it, you lucky girl.

I shall now pop off and re-subscribe myself.......

Happy and safe running in the new year.

That's a very good endorsement Sallycycle! Thank you.

I'm going to sit down tonight with a glass of bubbly (well, it's still Christmas) and browse the February edition ( yes really). I see the front cover includes the words " Stylish gear. 28 hot new running looks!".

I fear 2015 is the year I might go broke.

Happy running to you too.

Well... with all that equipment, you've got no excuse left, and simply have to be out there running all the time to show the gifters how much you love said gifts :) Merry Christmas, IP :)

Said gifts have had their first outing today, apart from the water belt and the magazine. I didn't need the water and I couldn't work out where to put the magazine. Love them all.

Happy Christmas to you too Tomas.

Well you must have been very good! That is a lovely list of running goodies! I am sure in no time the water belt will be needed.
