Joyeux Noel!!!

Ho Ho Ho!!!

I want to welcome the new followers who came over from the Run Like a Mother's blog following my guest post yesterday.  (You can read it here.) I do want to thank everyone who left a comment on that post or on my blog yesterday.  I was very overwhelmed by the response I got.  A lot of the comments made me cry.  I don't discuss my post partum depressions (had it with both kids) on this blog often...I don't even know if I ever mentioned it before.  For this specific post the question was "Why I run" and I wanted to give the most honest answer. 

I also want to thank Nelly over at Nelly on the Run for including me on his "Runners of the Year" list. If you don't follow Nelly you should.  He is the most thoughtful blogger, every week he goes out of his way to give the "Nelly Shououts" to people who had something great happening in their running life.

Like many of you, I am writing a 2011 review of my running year.  I will have that up in a few days.  It is fun to look back on all that has happened this year.

I love this time of year because we get REAL mail!  Every year I send a lot of Christmas cards to my family and friends.  I participated in 3 cards exchanges, 2 from running blogs and 1 with the Keith Urban fan club.  I taped the cards on a white paper and I put that on the walls!

Tomorrow going for 9 miles and Sunday will take the day off.  Back on the treadmill on Monday!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas!

I didn't make it over to read your why I I have to!

Your card idea is cool...I just tape mine to our doors.

Have a great run tomorrow and a WONDERFUL Christmas!

Merry Christmas, my sweet friend!

You are the sweetest and you deserve all the nice comments you got! Merry Christmas to you, too, Caroline. I love your blog.

You deserve all the best comments.
A beautiful card poster: you have many friends!
I hope you have run a fast 9 miler. Enjoy your day off .... and sorry for the treadmill: a workout is better but only under a warm sun!
Happy Christmas to you and your beautiful family.

Love all of your cards... we put ours on the back of our front door (which stays shut) so I get to see them all day long! :)

Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!!!

Christine said...

What a great idea to hang all on the cards on a white poster!!

Nelly said...

Wow that is a ton of cards! Cool idea!

You had a great year in 2011 with running and everything else!

I appreciate the comment on my blog =)

And I just hopped over to read your post about why you run. It was incredibly well written and you are inspirational.
Running has truly given me strength in my life and I can't imagine life without it!!
