and for the fashionable christmas runner…

my list of new holiday running gear that i covet is starting to sound a lot like “this is the house that jack built” (you know that children’s ditty where you add on another item to your list with each go-round).

to go with the pro compression socks i showed you the other day…


…please, please, santa bring me the holiday sweater long sleeve tech shirt!!


^^ here, the shirt is modeled by runner’s world celeb, bart yasso. i first saw this fabulous xmas tech item here on the rw website on friday. how GREAT would it be to run in this shirt…(i’ll show you another view…)


or, for doing a tready run, how about this santa tank?

as seen at "harmony by earthwinds" in uptown

[might have to scoot by and pick that up today, before they are all gone…].

just for laughs, i also would wear this tank to a race in say, june! hey, christmas is in our hearts year-round, right?!

i think the winning fashion item of the season is still the jamie oliver pullover – perfect for après-run knitting/movie time!


have you bought any new festive attire (running or normal-wear) this year? my stuff never wears out! i’ve got a sweater, two sweatshirts and two turtlenecks that are at least fifteen years old. because the pieces see the light of day one month per year, they will likely last another fifteen years!


i feel a lot of sadness as i reflect on the tragic shootings that occurred in newtown. i can’t comprehend the pain the families are feeling…what a senseless act of violence. i guess all we can do is send supportive thoughts and prayers to everyone affected and hug our own loved ones at every opportunity.

    You absolutely need the compression socks, Cathy! They are YOU!! Everything’s so colorful and I’d take Jamie with or with his Christmas spirit!!

    I bought a Cristmas sweater with two glorious angels on it. Then I read Caitlin’s post about her ugly Christmas sweater party and realized mine might fit right in. Isn’t it sad that I liked a lot of the sweaters she showed. I’m getting older by the minute.

    • 1970kikiproject  On December 18, 2012 at 4:02 pm

      haha! yes, i saw those photos, too…and my sweatshirt and handknit sweater would fit in perfectly, too! i am with you, i LIKE over-the-top xmas wear!!!

    LOVE the sweater tech shirt! I would love to have that! 🙂

    • 1970kikiproject  On December 16, 2012 at 8:55 pm

      I KNOW!!!! i never knew there was such a thing…i think i should propose the idea to the RR, get them to carry a line next year!!

    we are mourning…we found out that a little girl who was killed in the shooting on friday went to our friends’ kids’ school last year – they lived here in Winnipeg. it just brings things so close to home – so so sad.

    • 1970kikiproject  On December 16, 2012 at 5:33 pm

      oh, gina, i am so sorry to hear of your connection to the little girl. my heart just aches. let’s hug our little ones extra tight.

    You put snowflakes on your site. Maybe I just now noticed. 🙂 I love the holiday tech shirt, especially with Bart Yasso modelling. I think I have a total draw to the guy ever since I read his book. I need to look for that.

    • 1970kikiproject  On December 16, 2012 at 4:49 pm

      ooo, i have not read bart’s book…should look for that as i do enjoy reading about running (have you read any dean karnazes??)…the snowflakes – wordpress does that every december for me! i signed up for that option two years ago and now – poof! – every december it snows. i would rather it snow on my blog than in my ‘hood!

  • torontorunner  On December 16, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    hahahah GREAT idea to wear that xmas top in June. The top IS cute!
    I am sooo loving those holiday pro compression socks!

    And yes, I am SO excited for Target in Canada too, btw!

    • 1970kikiproject  On December 16, 2012 at 2:21 pm

      i JUST bought the tank, so i am set for christmas running…and wearing a santa tank in the summer!! haha! since you are in TO, you will be among the first to get a target, i think – yea!

    Hmm…I raided the clearance racks last week at Target and got a purple sports bra for about 8 dollars, and 2 shirts for $3.50, 2 camisoles with butterflies on them for $2.50. Of course, I forgot to pull the long, thin, size sticker off one of the shirt before it went through the washer and dryer and have been googling how to get sticker residue off my shirt! But, none of it was “holiday” stuff per se.
    And yes, you said it so well. Looking for sense when there isn’t any is difficult, but we can all do what we can.

    • 1970kikiproject  On December 16, 2012 at 9:21 am

      wow, those are GREAT DEALS, zo!! when target arrives in canada in 2013 (wheee!!!) i will make sure to check out clearance sections! i’d love to see those butterfly camis! hope you get the sticker glue off!
