Runner’s World has created an event “The 2013 Holiday Running Streak” to keep runners running during the holidays. The event basically is a promise to yourself that you will run at least 1 mile everyday from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day.
For me, usually running takes a back seat during the holidays seasons. It’s cold outside, there are parties to prep for or get to, and many days of eggnog and wine where running doesn’t always sound as appetizing the next day.
However, when January comes along I feel sluggish and my pants fit a little too tight. I wanted to stay active during the holidays so I thought this was the perfect promise to make to myself. Even if there are days where I don’t have much time and can only fit in 1 mile, I pledge to run everyday through the holidays, who is with me?

Have you ever made a workout pledge before?
Never a pledge, just goals.
What is your favorite holiday?
Any where I am surrounded by family, that is my favorite part of the holidays.
Do you usually hit the treadmill on cold winter days or do you tuff it outside?
I am a wimp when it comes to the cold, I usually hit the “dreadmill” and hate every minute of it.
