I swear this was Phil’s idea…

an XC tree?

While Liz was attending a birthday dinner this evening, Phil and I decorated our Christmas tree to give it a running theme. The end result might be of questionable taste, but once Phil came up with the idea of hanging medals on the tree as ornaments, there was no turning back.

Happy holidays!


  1. It looks great, but you need a big gold trophy "angel" at the top!Merry Christmas!

  2. Cool, cool tree!Greg, best wishes for the holiday season!

  3. Love it!!!!

  4. Phil has the greatest ideas! They must be from Liz's side 🙂

  5. I wanted to let you know that I have chosen your website to receive the "One Lovely Blog Award." I think that other families would benefit from reading the information you have in this blog.The rules, upon receiving this award, state that you must:• Accept the award;• Post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link;• Pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered; and• Contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

  6. Pam: I totally agree!Vanessa: I appreciate the endorsement, but, to be honest, I'm not a big fan of chain letters and similar arrangements that obligate you to contact lots of other people and make them do stuff. Therefore I guess I should decline the award.

  7. Amazing as always

  8. Greg, your wife never mentioned this on our runs over the past month…there were many good stories, but this one was not shared! I am glad she sent me your blog link so I could get a glimpse of this tree o' running glory. Nice call with the medals Phil. Love it.
