1. A bike. Ok, so technically I do have a bike already. And good 'ole Rickety Cricket has been good to me for short rides around the block, but you and I both know that I'm putting my life on the line every time I hop on that bike. Seriously. I got it for twenty bucks at a garage sale and I fear that it will literally fall apart every time I ride. It's named Rickety Cricket for a reason (10 bonus points to the reader who can tell me where that name came from). I'm not ungrateful, but I'm trying to reduce injury next year...not provoke it. 2. A new windbreaker. Preferably one with lots of zipper pockets. My current running jacket is great cause it has so many pockets, but it just doesn't breathe. I feel like I'm in a sauna when I wear it. I'd also like one that helps me not get run over in the dark...again, trying to reduce injury in 2009. 3. Running tights. Any kind will do, thank you.4. Nike's hatphones. These are cool and I love running gadgets. Plus, a stocking cap and headphones are often uncomfortable...and add sunglasses? Nope. That equals no music on my run. Hatphones would solve the problem. 5. An injury-free 2009. Healthy, strong legs are much desired.
Just 5 little things...that's not so much to ask is it Santa? I didn't think so. But in all seriousness, I'm so very grateful for what I have. It's been a tough year, but all in all, I have much to be thankful for. I'm looking forward to a great 2009! Merry Christmas everyone!!!
