And To Santa, A Good Night

One of our family's favorite traditions is frosting several batches of sugar cookies to give out to friends and neighbors during the holiday season.

Sometimes the proceedings get out of hand, as detailed in this post featuring the forever infamous (in our house, at least) peed-on snowman cookie. The following year we were a little more subdued, but still managed to be pretty creative, and this year was basically more of the same.

I mentioned that we give most of these cookies away ... but not all of them leave the confines of our house. Each of us pick a privileged few to go on the plate for Santa, and this year my plate of favorites looks like this:

From bottom to top: A blue Christmas tree (reminds me of being a kid - it's a a long story), a tie-dyed hippie snowman, a Drymax trail sock, and a snowman wearing Vibram FiveFingers. Plus a couple of special holiday CLIF bars in case Santa needs to pack something for the road.

I figure that should get him through the night. And I guess there's not much else to do but wait for the magic to happen. Merry Christmas to all.

Yummmmmmmm! (Except the hippie. I don't think it's sanitary to put that shit near your mouth)

So I moved to SF about 6 months ago. I'm just now getting back into training. It's sad, but my fitness was always pretty sad compared to yours.

I'm running a lot of the PCTR races and some of the Brazen Racing races this winter. Will I maybe have the pleasure of meeting you at one of them? Cuz that would be pretty bitchin'.

Speed Racer's comment about the hippy made me snort :)
