I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend with family, friends, and of course, a run or two. I kicked off Christmas Eve with 13 beautiful (if not a bit fast for me) miles with my friends.
If you haven’t noticed, my friends and I can come up with a reason for a run (combined with food, of course) pretty much any time. We already run together three times a week, but a few extra runs here and there with a “raison d’ etre” makes for even more fun. (No, I don’t speak French, so be impressed. Or maybe horrified at my poor handling of the language.)
You know we do birthday cake runs, we just did a jingle bell runwith a cookie exchange, and we add in others whenever there’s an excuse to do so. Today, of course, it’s boxing day. My friend Becky came up with this idea a few years back and has hosted us all for about a seven-mile run, followed by brunch.
Today I’m packing up the kids in the car and taking them by myself to Ohio to visit family, but not before the boxing day run. Priorities, right? And if I have to sit in a car for five hours, I’ll feel much better having had the run in first. So here’s to boxing day.
Did you do any special holiday runs over the weekend?
Does it seem like I used a million parentheses today? (It does to me).
