I've recently discovered the "back roads" of my town and have noticed tons of streets lit up with Christmas lights. My husband and I have not yet gone on our annual aimless drive to look at Christmas lights, so I decided to go for a run and investigate. This area is mostly new homes and there were some pretty stellar decorations.

The pup has been dying to go for a run so she went with me. She hasn't done 5 miles with me in a long time so I wasn't sure if she would be up for it. In typical dog fashion, I had to correct her to slow down for most of the first mile before she found my steady pace. The last mile seemed tough for her and after some encouragement, she was able to make it. Now that I know she can do it, she can come with me for all my 5 milers!
I ordered some professional photos from my marathon because the website was having a "Cyber Monday" sale a few weeks back. The pictures came yesterday, and I couldn't be happier with them. I hate paying for race photos because they are always so expensive, but I want copies of my first marathon so I can have them forever! I didn't order photos from my previous half marathon, and I wish I had one. Learning from my mistakes, I wasn't going to let the photos expire so I made sure to order a few. I plan on doing something fancy with the medal, bib, and photo(s) but I'm not sure yet. If anyone has a good company to recommend where they've gotten this done, let me know! I would rather not go to Michael's if I don't have to.

I decided to have a Treat Yo Self kind of moment this morning and got some DD coffee (which I never do). Christmas flavors are back including gingerbread. DELISH! I highly, highly recommend it.
