runfessions: the christmas remix

Merry Christmas and welcome to a very festive edition of Runfessions!

Let’s join up with Marcia’s Healthy Slice and leave it all under the tree!

I runfess…

That the weather is driving me insane. We are going from highs in the 80s to lows in the 20s, and then back up again, over 24 hour periods. It’s ridiculous. The drastic changes lead to a lot of pain in my ankle, and it saps all my motivation. Some days, I just need to lay in bed with my leg stretched all the way out to feel even remotely better.

That I love the magic of Christmas, but it’s hard being the one who makes it all happen. After my morning run, I spent the day on my feet, wrapping, cooing, cleaning, and making everything just right. I’m paying for it tonight, with a very sore leg, and I am doing my best to herd A off to bed so we can lay out the rest of the gifts and stuff stockings.

That I am so sad to have missed out on all the parties and fun events for a second year in a row. Sure, it’s for a different reason than last year but it still just stinks. We are doing our part by staying away from social gatherings and big crowds, but that doesn’t mean I’m not missing it.

That I may already know what’s in a bunch of those gifts under the tree with my name on them. But I will also runfess that Mr PugRunner snuck out again today to pick up one last gift and I have no idea what it was. It’s been bothering me all day, but I’ll be patient.

That I am so glad for this year to be coming to an end, even if I have no idea what 2021 is going to bring. It’s got to be better than 2020, right? I guess we will just have to wait and see.

What do you have to runfess?
