I didn't have a chance to get out and do anything yesterday, but when I took a friend back home I saw a runner out in the late afternoon and thought it looked so cool and wished I could be out there. But too exhausted from cooking all day. I also saw cars at the gym, which is a 24 hour gym you can access any time with a key card. Lots of people doing fitness things on Christmas Day. My ideal would be to go for a very long nice hike but family obligations kept me from doing it. But doing something like a race or a hike is my favorite way to celebrate holidays or my birthday. I did get out and do a fast, 5.3 mile hike on Christmas Eve to fit it in between other things that had to be done. Whether it's running or other fitness things, we really have changed in how we like to celebrate.

I've been a proud Christmas day runner for 3 years now!
I ran on the too icy streets of my spouse's hometown in NE. As I was laboring slowly up a particularly nasty hill, a very friendly citizen bid me a Merry Christmas. Hey man, I'm working here!!

Since I don't celebrate Christmas, I was out running yesterday morning. There were 3 other people running, too. And, I think one person walking. It was cold even though I live in Southern California!!

Only problem with the Christmas season is that there are no races for the last two weeks of December (at least, not in the greater DC area). My house is currently inundated with relatives and if only there was a race, I could get them out for awhile. (For everything else, they say it's too cold to go out.) It's kinda weird that in contrast, Thanksgiving has so many race opportunities. Why such a difference?

I used to wonder what was wrong with those idiots out running on Christmas Day.
Now I are one.
