Christmas Eve is one of my favourite days of the year. Maybe even more than Christmas (but only a little). I’m not completely sure why that is. While I am excited for Santa, it doesn’t keep me up at night anymore, and the whole holiday season can sometimes be stressful. But for whatever reason, I find myself feeling sentimental on Christmas Eve.
Today I am excited to get to go for a run with my brother who is in town for the holidays. Even though his legs are about twice as long as mine and his steady-pace is nearly twice as fast (okay so I am exaggerating…a little) I love to run with him and am always grateful when we have the chance.
Looking back at my training log, I see that I have never actually run on Christmas Eve. Apparently I ran on Christmas day in 2007 – it was only once around the block and my notes say “my dinner was not interested in running.” I don’t particularly remember that, so it must have been a pretty good turkey coma. Anyway, this will be a first for me. We decided to just run while it feels good and stop when we’re finished, no particular distance in mind.
Since I am feeling sentimental, I would like to take a moment to say Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy Running to you all. Thank you for reading and sharing!
Do you have a holiday tradition that involves running? If I am going to make a tradition out of this, I will need some ideas! Please leave me a comment, I would love to hear yours!
