I was looking over my blog and I pretty much have stuck to the point. Running, motivation and inspiration. That is what my blog is about after all right? I figure, one day a week I just kind of say what is on my mind or at least talk about the other aspects of what is going on in my life. God knows this particular life is not just about running! Enjoy this piece every now and then or ignore it lol
I am looking forward to this weekend! It is not a jam packed weekend but in my opinion, it is filled at just the right amount. Of course, I am hoping to get a couple of nice easy runs under my belt, but that’s not all. I’ll be attending the annual Christmas Tree Lighting where I live in Long Island at the Old Westbury Gardens. How do I describe this place other than an enormous estate where someone used to live many years ago that has been preserved as a beautiful garden. Onthe grounds is an equally beautiful mansion and they dress this place up for the holidays with a touch of old school Christmas décor. It is one of may favorite holiday events to attend with my family, so we will be doing this again Saturday night! Sunday has me tackling the remainder of my own Christmas decorations on the outside of my house. I thought I was done last week, but we had some “technical difficulties” during the week!
*Christmas Has Arrived At 30 Rock*
Not that I would have ever mentioned it in any of my posts, but I work at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, aka the NBC Building, aka the Christmas Tree Building but officially known as Comcast Building. Many of you may have watched on TV as the tree was lit on Wednesday evening. This officially kicks off the holiday season in this part of NYC. The amount of tourists that will ascend on this part of NYC is unreal. As a tenant of the building I cannot tell you how crowded it gets. A 5 minute walk to get lunch turns into a 15-20 minute ordeal. Lets just say that in December, I start to order in lunch a lot or just bring from home! Enjoy the sights and sounds of 30 Rock if you are in the area and if you are, hit me up!
*New Addition To The Family*
No we didn’t have another child, but we did add a pet to the family earlier this week. My oldest daughter fell in love with a dog at her job and took the dog in. Say hello to Ernie a cute 3 month old Shih Tzu. Ernie joins our other Shih Tzu/Maltese Valentina, as spoiled pets that will sit around and sleep most of the day while the remainder of their days, they just act cute. This dog has a lot of energy, I’ll be shocked if my older dog can keep up with him!
*New York Knicks*
Aside from running, I am a big sports buff (except for the NFL). I didn’t expect much from my New York Knicks but don’t look now, they are 9th in the conference. I know its early, but that’s only one spot away from a post season spot (lol)! I laugh because I didn’t think these guys would win more than 11 games all year. 21 games into the season they have already won 11 games and have surprised the hell out of me. Can they keep this up or are they just setting my up for a let down? I like the team. Its a young team that has nothing to lose!
I’ve been invited to two “Ugly Sweater” parties now in December and neither one of the crowds know each other. Is it wrong that I plan on wearing the same ugly sweater to both parties? I mean no one is going to know…until of course the pics go up on social media (lol)? Any “ugly sweater” parties in your future?
Hope you all have a great Friday and an even greater weekend!
