I got a Forerunner 305 for Christmas - still trying to figure out how to program it properly, but I'm not using it right now in my training. I'm doing 2:3 intervals for a little over a mile - seems almost silly to take it out for that.

im glad to see others enjoying their saucony shoes - i went to dsw to pick out a pair and they were the most comfortable, but i hadnt researched the brand. but im loving them!

i also got a stability ball, a weighted jump rope, a resistance band, and a yoga mat! im loving the stability ball SO much, i mess around with it even when im not working out. and its become a fabulously comfortable makeshift ottoman as well!

My husband got me the Garmin 305 watch and Santa brought me a new Ipod since I lost my MP3 player on the way to the last race and had to use my 9 yo daughter's ipod that day and run to Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers. Santa also brought me a water belt.

I was good this year! :D

I got my women's beanie (has a hole for the ponytail!) and Nike running gloves. :-)

I'm super happy as they were both my #1 items on the ol' wish list.

I got money from my family (green goes well with everything!) so I used it for running shoes, a swiss ball, leg and wrist weights. My shoes arrived today and I've had a lot of fun breaking them in!

I really like my Saucony running shoes - I think they're a bit cushier than some brands. I alternate between those and my Brooks which do a better job of keeping my feet from rolling inward.

I received an itunes gift card because I am seriously in need of some new music to work out to, a gift card to a local store to get more running clothes and non-cotton long underwear for cross-country skiing, and a nice, fluffy bathrobe to lounge around in afterwards. :)

Great question! I got a medicine ball and a pair of sketchers that "ROCK". They are comfortable so far. I worn them for a few hours Christmas. Plan to wear at work and break them in gradual. They do make me stand taller.

My Christmas gifts this year centered on fitness. A new pair of New Balance Running Pants, A lifeline jump rope, and pair of Yaktrax so I can run on the snow and ice in Michigan. How about you? Did you get something that will help you reach your fitness goals?
