It is hard to believe that December is finally upon us. I guess I can no longer avoid Christmas music or decorations now that we are less than three weeks until the big day. My husband and I checked out our first Christmas-related events this past weekend, first, I swung by the Halifax Crafters market on Saturday where I picked up a few items from Emma Fitzgerald and Jane Rovers, swoon! I first saw Emma's work at the Timeraiser event in Halifax - I bid on one of her pieces but, unfortunately, did not win.
Last night my husband and I headed downtown to St. Paul's Anglican Church where we were treated to Wassail - hosted by the Halifax Music Co-op. The venue was quite magical on a dark, cold December evening. The music was beautiful and energetic and finally put me in the Christmas mood.
So, the links I have for you tonight are not at all related to Christmas and have no common theme, but I hope you still find something worth reading.

Run Like a Grl - Tips for Running in the Winter
Ever since I ran the MEC 5k at Shubie Park a few months ago I have been trying to get back into running. I have been keeping things around 3k roughly three times a week to slowly build back my leg strength. I have also been dragging the fur baby with me on these runs. It is clear to me that Bernese Mountain Dogs were not born to run. Hugo's technique includes lying down in the middle of the road and refusing to move. Or only running for treats. And only until you give him the treat. As the weather gets colder I am adding more and more layers to my running attire and dreaming of warmer days. Although most of these tips are pretty straight forward, I would also agree that they are pretty bang on. Especially thumb holes - these are essential!
