This year we're off to spend Christmas with some friends in Abu Dhabi. I've never been to the UAE so I'm looking forward to seeing some interesting sights and doing a little bit of shopping! The five days we spend there will be filled with food, laughs....and lots of running!
I can't wait to run in the warm, sunny weather! With 46 miles left to get to 1000 miles for the year, I'll be getting up uncharacteristically early to beat the heat and get those miles in. Maybe I can even get Hubs and our friends to join in. We arrive late on the 24th which means one of the first things I'll do in Abu Dhabi is a Christmas Day run on the beach. I don't know how many runners will be out there with me in Abu Dhabi, but I'll be happy knowing that so many other runners will be running or racing on Christmas Day.
I hope my family knows that even though I'm far away, they are always in my thoughts. Wherever you are this year, I hope you have a great time celebrating the holiday!
