Happy Holidays everyone! I love a great Holiday Race-It doesn’t matter if it’s Valentine’s Day, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving or Christmas. You will usually find me running numerous holiday races every year. Why Sign up for a holiday Race?
The holidays can be pretty stressful and having
an excuse a reason to get out of the house first thing in the morning can help relieve some of the family stress. Just saying.
The holidays are filled with lots of extra food and drink opportunity. Getting out and getting moving early in the day assures that you will get your workout in before the day gets away from you.
Holiday themed races tend to be more relaxed and more for fun. They can be opportunities to just run without the pressure of a time goal. Lots of more casual runners tend to sign up for them.
Holiday races are also a great way to get the whole family involved in exercising and running. Because they are usually more relaxed, family members may be more willing to tag along in the fun.
Many holiday races have a charity that is tied to them or involve bringing a donated food item or toy. What a great way to help those who are less fortunate.
Holiday races-love them or leave them? Do tell!
