Christmas Presents

My folks always give us cash for Christmas. So, today I bought some gu's and unnu for myself. Yeah, some people call it nuun - but read the label for yourself. I'll see if it works on my next long run. Then, maybe I can use it for the Rock and Roll Marathon coming up in 17 days. That's Chocolate Mint Gu.
When we get freeze reports, people are told to cover up tender plants. Some people put styrofoam cups on top of their cactus. These folks put santa hats. Pretty cool, I think.

Pat I am on the floor laughing. It is NUUN. You are reading it upside down.

I think you will really like the UNNU. When I actually read the label I discovered that I had been using too much (only need a half tab not a whole). Just a word to the wise. Let me know how you like it...did you get it at Landis?

See ya soon!

I've never tried the UNNU before. Let us know how it is! Chocolate mint Gu sounds very festive!

I like the idea of Santa hats for the cactus!

Ready for your marathon in just a few weeks?

Take care, Pat!

Nice gifts. Always fun to pick out what you really want. I'm not sure I'm ready for choc mint gu. I don't like my chocolate tainted with anything. But, since my dog got sick on chocolate this week, I may be off it all together for awhile!

17 days!! WOO HOO.

I love the new look of your blog. Very beautiful header!

OK, I know what GU is, but what is that other stuff? Guess I'll have to Google UNNU and NUUN to see!

Happy running in 2008!
