December for Runners

Ok… I know you’re all busy getting ready for Christmas. Some of you still have children at home. And all of us have extra commitments. The question that raises is… When do you run?

How, during this busy season, do you get your runs in?

Of course you know my answer…except that it’s pretty darned dark at 5 a.m. Yikes.

So let’s consider other options.

After work? Dark.

Treadmill? Boring.

But…how about Christmas runs?

Last week we missed the annual Turkey Trot, but there are many more to choose from.

On Saturday there’s a trail run not too far from home. You Don’t Know Jack. And if that’s not enough notice for you….

There are Ugly Sweater and Christmas Light runs everywhere. And of course there will New Year’s runs at the end of the month.

If I can find runs on the 19th and the 26th, that would take care of my Saturday runs all month. It’s easy to do a daylight run on Sunday, obviously. So I’ll only have to squeeze one or two runs into the dark hours of the work week. Not a problem.

Remember last year? And my DIY Christmas light run?


Maybe I’ll go that route. Either early or late, the lights are shining on Main Street.
