Two wonderful Christmas presents and some new years resolutions.

What's that you say? It's well past Christmas and a little late to just now start writing about new years resolutions? Oh well. I'm a happy girl so I don't really care that I am a little behind with a few things.

First of all, I received two amazing presents for Christmas. The best of all, was a fiance! That's right, he put a ring on it! I knew from the beginning, any boy that travels five and a half hours to spend the day with your extended family while you run a marathon, watches you throw up at the end and then hugs you, and to top it off, pulls you out of an ice bath and wraps you in a towel, he was a keeper. I was just waiting for him to be ready to take that next step. I couldn't be any happier if I tried.

The second best, was this little beauty.

A garmin and a fiance? I am one lucky girl!

Since Las Vegas (yes I know I have yet to even think about re-capping the amazingness that was the Rock and Roll Las Vegas Half) I planned to take off a week, which turned into two, which melted into Christmas chaos. Three days before Christmas, while exchanging presents in front of my brightly lit, but oh so fake Christmas tree, Ralph proposed. Christmas chaos turned into the glow of engagement chaos and running was quickly put on the back burner. If not for the weekly running schedule sent to me faithfully every Sunday night to remind me to get my butt in gear I would probably still be sitting on the couch every night, drinking champagne and eating chocolates. No really.

It took a while but I can finally say I am back into the swing of things and even signed up for my first race of the year last night! It's going to be a busy year, that's for sure. But one thing remains true, I will continue to work to fit everything in my schedule. And I will not become a bridezilla. Ok two things.

Congrats!!!!! I think we live parallel lives in a way! By the glow of my oh-so-fake Christmas tree my Guy popped the question 2 days before Christmas and once that ring was on running was the last thing on my mind until a few days after Christmas and celebrating had wrapped up!

I love my Garmin and I'm sure you'll have fun with yours! Congrats again!
