“I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle,” screams Ralphie as he clings to Santa’s red slide. Ralphie, I can totally relate. You want a Red Ryder BB gun, I want a Garmin Forerunner 305 with a GPS Receiver and built-in heart rate monitor.
How I long to break free of my treadmill, my phone’s GPS applications, and MapMyRun. To slap on this little beauty and head out in any direction imaginable for a serious run is all I’ve thought about since I made up my Christmas list this year. Yup, we still make wish lists. I think I’ll get lucky because this model isn’t the newest out there, so the price is reasonable compared to others. Keeping my fingers crossed! I’ll be so happy to tear open the wrapping paper and find myself holding the forerunner in my hands, I imagine I’ll bust out the front door and immediately start running down the street to test it out!
Other items on my Christmas list include:
I wasn’t very specific with the running clothes, as long as their made for cold weather. For someone who lives in a state with frigid winters, you would assume I already have warm clothes to workout in. Nope! I had two pairs of long underwear, and somewhere along the line they’ve disappeared into the abyss that is my closet. I have a pair of sweatpants, but they’re capris — not too good for running through slushy roads. So any cold weather item would be greatly appreciated!
I remember smelling this perfume in the department store a year or so ago, and I haven’t forgotten how much I loved it! I’m one of those girls who loves nice scents and perfumes, but I can never justify spending so much on such a little bottle. So I decided to put this on my Christmas list because it’s something I’d never by for myself. Plus it just looks so pretty!
This whole concept intrigues me. I would love to be able to fill up my water bottle at the gym or school and always have good tasting water at my fingertips!
That about wraps up my Christmas list this year. Obviously, I don’t expect to get all of these things, if any! It’s fun to dream and no harm in that!
What are some things you’re hoping Santa brings to you? What is has been your Red Ryder equivalent?
