I just signed up to go around and around and around a track at the Utah Olympic Oval on Saturday December 31st for 4 hours from 8:00 am-12:00 noon.(www.newyearsrevolutionrun.com) It should be entertaining to some degree. The whole idea is to finish off your year strong with trying to accomplish a race you haven't done yet or by trying to better your time in a certain distance. You can walk, run, meander, whatever you'd like for 4 hours. You get points for each lap around the track and get your name entered into an hourly drawing. This race is supporting the Utah Food Bank and the Autism Council of Utah and so bringing canned food gives bonus points. So far I haven't been able to get any friends to join me so I may be going solo on this. I really need to find me some running buddies.

Christmas morning we had church at 9:00 am for an hour. It was a neat opportunity to participate in choir this year. I'm not usually the singing type but do enjoy some lovely Christmas songs so I joined for a couple months. We have an awesome choir director that did some cool stuff with bells and a violinist who was amazing! The primary sang, the young men and young women had a number, and even a sweet little piano duet by some talented kids. Music has a way of moving me emotionally and I end up crying more than I'd like to, which in turn makes it hard to sing. I got through it though and also love watching the faces of members out in the congregation as they watch and feel the spirit of the day. We then came home and changed our clothes and opened gifts.
