Only 55 more shopping days left!

All I want for Christmas is:

  1. All my race entries paid for in 2011. I’ll wear a shirt in your honour. And a hat. Just so you can budget accordingly, it will be about $1,000.00 not counting the entry and expenses of a destination race, so add about $6700.00 if you are feeling flush.
  2. A Garmin 310xt
  3. All the models of Ryder Eyewear. All. even the chicks stuff.
  4. A sub 4hr Marathon in May
  5. A 1:53 half marathon in April
  6. A trip to a destination race for the whole family. Paris, Las Vegas, Fargo… you know, the awesome ones.
  7. I’m good for Gu for a while. hold off on that.
  8. A Shoe sponsor. For my wife of course. Her internet name, btw, is Shoefoot Traci Z,
  9. An early spring and a dry summer for 2011.
  10. Lots of running apparel
  11. To get signed on a official tester for a couple major brands (and all the minor brands) of minimalist shoes for the winter. Who wouldn’t want a Clydesdale barefoot runner sending their product through the ringer in the cold Canadian winter and writing all about it on the internets?
  12. One Million Dollars. It won’t change me.
  13. Free Oil Changes and flat repairs for life.
  14. A new Canon EOS 7D DSLR with all the lenses. all.
  15. A new 39’ Fifth Wheel camper and a gas card.
  16. Peace on Earth and Good Will to All!

What’s on your list??

20k Run on Sunday, looks like it may be nice enough for Barefoot! Who’s in?

RoadID contest ends on Sunday, Enter HERE!


  1. You're not asking for much at all! Good call on the garmin... but do you mean the 310XT, or the 405CX? Or is there another one I'm not aware of?
    PS tell Santa that is the best place to get it from; their warehouse is here in Calgary!

  2. Wow. All I told my mom I wanted was new cutting boards, new cookie sheets and a spirilizer for my zucchini.

  3. Okay - I'll do number #1 [be Santa and gift you that request] if you can make it snow at my house today.

    I'm waiting.

  4. Jarret Yes, 310XT.. change made...

    Kate... Higher goals.

    EmZ, I made a couple calls, we'll see.

    Julie, so you'll sponsor me then?

  5. You definitely give us all something to strive for... I'm going to have to put a lot more thought into what I ask for this year.

  6. Chris K stole mine, damn it. I'll take Van in SoCal. Though I understand your POV on this, I still want it. A Garmin 310XT would be cool as well.

  7. I don't think you have been THAT good this year Neil! Okay maybe you have, maybe it's my list that is much shorter.

    I'm very traditional, I usually want the same thing "COLD HARD CASH"

    "The Best things in life are free.....but you can save them for the birds and bees....."

  8. Your shopping list is awesome. =D I love #3. Hahaha. =D

    Ahh pretty pictures.

    And now I must go ponder my list...
