Make it a double

After months of being jealous of all you other runners, I got in a double workout yesterday!

Thursday am = 4.5 mile run (on the treadmill - 1st of the season)
Thursday pm = 45 min spin class

Since this was my first spin class I took it easy but really enjoyed it and hopefully I will be able to go back next week!

I have some fun plans for the weekend, beginning with some Christmas shopping tonight. Tomorrow is the first track meet for my college track team and I will be making an appearance. Then Saturday night I have my company Christmas party! I found this awesome red dress from JCPenney (thanks for all the advice!) and it was only $50!


Then Sunday is the big day with the Tri. I don't any goals in mind - just want to have fun and not have my IT band hurt like it has been recently...

Happy Friday!!!

What a pretty dress! I hope we get to see pics!

I am thinking of a running/biking double today too. I hope it works. I got up at 4:00 so that I would be to the office at 6:30 but my train is running 30 mins late :( So my plan is kind of messed up. Ugh. Sorry. Just wanted to vent!

That's a gorgeous dress. I decided not to buy anything new for my annual staff Xmas party this year, but next year I'd love to find something like that.

Have fun!

Have fun! What a great dress! I have never been invited to a holiday party where I could wear a dress. Some day I hope! Our company banned all holiday parties this year due to the economy, so my program is doing something on our own tonight. But it's a sweater & jeans, low key type of thing. shoudl still be fun, though!

I didn't know you were doing a tri! Good luck!!
