Mondays in Love: Merry Christmas!!

Holy moly, it's been a month since I last posted to the ol' blog. A MONTH! I think this is a first in the history of JoannaRuns. The last month has been hectic and honestly, I needed a break from whatever I could find that I could temporarily throw overboard.

So, MERRY CHRISTMAS!! And so much else to love.

1. Happy dating anniversary to my love
Mr. Joanna and I started dating 11 years ago yesterday. It's hard to believe it's been that long. Time flies, we're having fun.

2. Hitting my goals
After the baby was born in April, I made the goal of returning to my Christmas 2010 weight by Christmas 2012. I am thrilled, beyond thrilled, to say that I not only met but exceeded this goal. In fact, I'm 9 lb. under that goal!! Only 5 lb. to go before I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I'm feeling good. 

3. Christmas with little kids
Tell me this isn't pure magic. 

4. I'm on track to beat my highest mileage month since January
Not sure I need much more explanation here. Yay! 
(and, for the record, I traded into new shoes around 12/4)

5. I finally debuted my new Brooks winter jacket, and it's awesome

When I ran this morning it was 31 but felt like 20. It was glorious. And this jacket was perfect. It's fleecy on the inside, has thumb holes, a hood (which I didn't use), and pockets that are big enough for use. Love, love, love. 

Happy running everyone! I promise I'll start catching up on your posts soon!
