Hellooooo December!!! #birthdaymonth


December 16th–save the date! πŸ˜€

There are so many things I want to write about–like my review/thoughts on Hanson’s Marathon Method and how I’ve been really working on my running/racing mental game–but right now, all I can think about is how it’s already freaking December! How in the hell did that happen!!!

It’s my birthday month and I don’t know about the rest of you December birthday people, but growing up I got a lot of the “Here’s your birthday AND Christmas present.” Ugggghhhhhh….. seriously the worst thing a 10 year-old can hear. Aaaand, trying to have a birthday party during the holidays (and during school break)–fugghedaboutit….


But on the bright side, like someone on my Instagram noted about their spouse, my husband has been making up for the lack of presents I received growing up πŸ˜€ Love ya, babe!!

Anyway, I leave you with this:


and welcome to December!!!

I’ll get back to writing running stuff soon, lol!

–Do you or anyone you know have a December birthday and complain about the one gift for both holidays like I do?

–How do you feel about December? Do you get nostalgic over the year or excited about the upcoming year?

–Do you celebrate your birthday all month like I do?

    • Totally understand–there’s plusses to having a December birthday but there’s drawbacks and that’s one of them–people are already stressed about Christmas gifts and tacking on a birthday gift is just adding to that…

  1. My brothers is the 27th, right next to Xmas. But we try to separate the two the best we can. 100% agree to bday months, life is too short lol

  2. My husband’s birthday is a week before Christmas and he told me about how he would get 2 for 1 gifts as a kid. He also never had a birthday party because his mom told him everyone else was too busy that time of year. Good for you for celebrating all month! Have a good one!
