On Christmas day i ran to church (4.17miles 38mins). I haven't been to church in well over a decade on Christmas (i was brought up catholic but i am not religious now) and for some reason, i just wanted to go this year. So i set off 45 minutes before it started and met my family there. It was really cold, snow on the ground but beautiful. I ran down to the beach, around Marine drive which took me past a surfer getting ready to join his friends in the surf. I shouted a cheery Christmas greeting as i passed. I got to church with 5 minutes to spare to stretch and cool off a bit.

On boxing day i also ran. I got up earlier and was out the door by 8am As it was so lovely the day before i chose to run down to the beach again. It ran a shorter route, i hadn't had my porridge and was probably a bit worse for wear after drinking all Christmas day. But i did 3.9miles in 32 mins.

Yesterday i did a long run of 6.5 miles. Ran the same route as Christmas but made it a loop to get home. Tomorrow I must run. Then i shall bake muffins. Then go to a friends for new years eve. Its all moving so quickly. xx
