Christmas list

I read somewhere that it's 40 days until Christmas. Is that right? WOW! What's on your Christmas (or Hanukkah) list this year? Any must haves that I need to steal and add to my list (yeah, I'm having a hard time thinking of things).


Here's what I have so far...
I'm loving this watch. I have a problem (maybe a slight obsession) with workout watches. The problem is I always want a pink one (I'm a total girl) and they turn yellow/green/black from all the stuff that they are exposed to. This one is PERFECT! And I'm thinking that I'll benefit immensely from the heart rate monitor aspect of it.







A Fuelbelt Sprint - I'm spoiled in that my husband always carries water when we run. But I like this little bottle (only holds 10oz) which would be perfect for the fast short running I plan to do this year. :) Do any of you have this one or one similar that you would recommend. It would be for water, not gel.






A new Garmin Forerunner 305. We had one for a few years and it putzed out. Although I've considered getting the 310XT, we don't usually wear it in races so I don't think I really care about the fact that it can be used during the swim. Plus, Walmart has the 305 for $130 which is a pretty awesome price. ;)






A kickboxer needs at least two sets of wrist wraps. And any girl kickboxer needs a set of pink ones right? This will hopefully end the funk that happens when doing kickboxing three days a week with only one set of wraps.








Have you read Matt and Maddy's blog (Matt, Liz and Madeline)? I've been following their story for quite a while and am super excited about the book. It doesn't come out until April, but you can pre order it. :)









I also want an ornament that says "All I want for Christmas is a new PR". My mom had bought me one a few years ago and I dropped it last year and it broke. I've not been able to find a new one since though (I can find flat ones, but this was a glass ball one and I loved it).

Annnnnnd, that's the extent of my list. I need to come up with some new things. My mom bought me a new winter coat (I picked it out the other day so I know what it looks like) so I'm sure I'll get gloves to go with that. But I feel like I have everything swim, bike and run related that I could possibly need. I'm finally at a point where I can pick out "wants" instead of "needs" for my list and I'm struggling...
What are you asking for this year?

Love your list/photos of wants.

I'm soooooooooooo with you though.....
......... what I really, really want . .

"All I want for Christmas is a new PR" but I REALLY want to be faster than MATTY-O & Q.

Awesome.

i dont have anything on my list... i cant think of anything other than lululemon stuff!

Betsy said...

I'd love to find those ornaments for all my tri friends.

Also- I think you need to add the 310xt back to your list. I LOVE LOVE LOVE mine. I have a birthday in 29 days and then Christmas...I'd better get going on my list too!

Love the "new PR" idea for an ornament.

Copychic said...

Oooh, I have a HRM on my list as well, but I can't decide on which ones I want. I think I want a Suunto.

MissFancyPants said...

what a fun list - the fuelbelt sprint is awesome I have 2...love them. And just finished saving for the 310xt... but I am in a debate over the $130 305.(it's on Amazon for that price too).

Christi said...

I have no idea what I want for Christmas!

Derek said...

I'm with Christi, I have no idea yet and people are starting to ask!

Meredith said...

I don't know why you'd get a HRM watch and a separate GPS watch. I have a Garmin 310XT and love it for training and racing (although I would never wear it during a marathon). Timex has a new GPS/HRM out. It is BIG but at least looks like a normal watch.

I just got an Amphipod handheld that's only 10 oz. I love it a lot.

Anne-Marie said...

Cool post and great gifts! Thanks for the heads-up about the Garmin 305 being $130 at Wal-Mart... mine died in the rain this year and I've been dragging my feet to replace it.

I think my Christmas list can be summed up as 'cash for the tri equipment fund', since I don't think I can ask my family/friends to buy me race wheels, new tri shoes, new aero helmet, or Dura Ace components ;) Either way too much $$ or they wouldn't get the sizing/style right!

BUT I recently added 'food processer' to the list, since my mom likes to get me kitchen/cooking type gifts.

Kristen said...

You already know what I want...now I'm glad to see what you want!!!

****running off to start shopping...

Rebecca said...

Our kids monopolized our Christmas Fund so with that being said our Christmas list turns into a couple's list and this year it is a new camera. So I guess making a "list" is moot at this point. So can I live vicariously through you?!

Carolina John said...

I want an Ironman t-shirt that says "awww, you ran a marathon. how cute".

Kelly said...

I have that fuelbelt handheld and love it. The big bottles are too heavy for me! This fits great in my hand and is easy to refill.

Aimee said...

Nice list!
I haven't even started thinking about my x-mas list yet! Time is going by too fast!

Molly said...

I got my 305 in Lowes in May for only $170, bargain!!

I'm in dire need of a new purse!!!
