It was a festive week of fitnessing in my little corner of the universe.
You know the drill...if I have workouts happening this time of year, I don the festive red and green and get sweating. At least that's my formula for a fun week (or even an entire holiday season). Go bright or go home. And smile as it happens. Works for me.
Before I share the details, a festive welcome to the Weekly Run Down!
I love hosting this link-up with Deborah (from Confessions of a Mother Runner)! If you write a fitness-based blog, you're invited to join the party. The link-up opens at 1:00 (EST) on Sundays and remains open through noon on Monday. We love reading about everyone's weekly fitness endeavors, training highlights (or low lights) and race recaps. We ask that you link back to both hosts, and we encourage you to read/comment on the other linked blogs as well...please don't link-drop & dash ;-)
So, here's what went down - festively speaking - this week:
Later, after some Christmas Eve prepping and baking, the temps were at their highest of the day. I got out for a very quick streak run. Amazingly, I really didn't feel that miserable (probably because it was only for one mile LOL), and that sunshine was everything!
In other news:
As mentioned in my Runfessions post, I have another virtual endeavor happening on January 30th. After all, why not? There's not much else happening right now, and the Allstate Hot Chocolate series has races happening everywhere (I'll be doing the Houston 5K). I have done a chocolate-themed race (Chocoholic 10K , Iowa City), but have never done an actual hot chocolate endeavor. This race series comes with some pretty sweet swag (quite literally), and the code BRHC20 will score you a free running hat with you registration. Anyone want to join me, virtually?

Even though Christmas looked a little different for us this year, it still was a great day of celebration with family. We can still smile behind the face masks (just not for a family photo LOL).
So, there you go. Another week all wrapped up and tied with a festive bow.
How was your week? Any great workouts in festive gear? Did your weather do a drastic plummet in temps? Any (masked) family gatherings?
