This past week has gone so fast! Jeff and I spent Christmas in Buffalo with my family, and although there was no snow (in Buffalo! for Christmas! Can you imagine?) it was still pretty easy to get in the Christmas spirit. I’d been ramping up all week with the Christmas Scavenger Hunt, and spending several days with family brought it all together. I didn’t get a ton of miles in (one per day to be exact, just to keep the holiday streak alive), but I did get some “cross training” at our annual family bowling competition. Unfortunately, I was unable to defend my title, and the Rudolph Cup has a new home for 2015.
Handing the trophy off to the new champ!
Now, speaking of the scavenger hunt, I said I was giving myself through the New Year to find everything on the list, but I feel like I’ve had enough time, so I’m calling it. Feel free to keep searching, if you’ve decided to play along!
I was looking for 8 items (some holiday in nature, and some tricky ones to keep me on my toes.) And here’s how I did:
So lame. But, it’s still snow.
A CHRISTMAS TREE
A HOLIDAY CHARACTER
Santa in his RV. Yeah, I don’t know either.
A DECORATED HOUSE
AN OUT OF SEASON DECORATION
Someone forgot to peel the witch off their tree!
SOMEONE WEARING SHORTS OR SANDALS
Yeah, that’s me, big ol’ cheater.
I did not find a runner wearing red or green. I didn’t actually see another runner at all. I’m sure they were there, but I mostly only ran a single mile at a time, so that didn’t give me much time to see anyone else. I could have worn red or green myself, but I thought I should probably only count myself for one item. 🙂
All in all, not too bad. Getting back to scavenger hunting was pretty fun, too.
Did you have a good holiday? Find any items on the Scavenger Hunt List?
