Great run this morning!  It was one of those where everything felt great and I just wanted to keep going, but I forced myself to be smart so I don't risk increasing volume too much and getting injured.  Visiting family in Socal -- sunny and almost 70 degrees

Whimper.... Going to venture out into the freezing fog here in Oregon in an hour or so. In these conditions, waiting for it to warm up is probably like waiting for....wait a minute, it IS Christmas, isn't it?! Ran pretty long yesterday so today might be shorter--probably 45 minutes or so.

Awesome 8-miler around a beautiful lake in the COLD!

2 miles with my parents, then my sister and I took off for some tempo work. Lots of fun

Run and done....1:01 in freezing fog on wood chip trails. Glad I ran from car so I could crank the heater up when I got back. Apparently there is nice, warm, sunny weather a few thousand feet above us, but we're stuck in the fog for the next several days.

Did 1.5 miles outside; it was about 10F out, a little chilly, but I had new warm things to wear so I was fine!

Funny thing is that runkeeper hasn't updated the maps to include the new bridge near my house, so it looks like I ran across the river.

I also benefited from some sweet christmas swag.  So, the cool air (three below F with the breeze) wasn't a bother at all…  Got 4.2 in, all easy breezy beautiful sunny christmas run!

Had to squeeze it in between breakfast / gifts with the family (the kids are at an awesome age - old enough to sleep in a little but young enough to still want to spend christmas morning with us) and the afternoon festivities, during which we had the rest of my family (and their families) over.  Was great to have 4 generations eating busche de noel by the fire!  But only after a great run.

Got in 3 miles before lunch. Perfect opportunity to try out my new sportkilt. It was a little breezy here in Florida so my kilt blew up a few times. I don't think anybody would have gotten a show but I was glad the neighborhood streets were pretty desolate this morning just in case.

Got out later than I wanted to thanks to lingering family, 2.6 miles. I am sure building the lego buildings and Barbie dream house help burn some of the cookies off right, I mean the dang house was over 3ft tall!!

Ok, so it wasn't a run, but I did get 7 miles in XC skiing, and half of that was back country to the trails. 2 feet of snow and more coming so pretty sure I we are not getting any running in until we get back south. I am good with that.

Totally counts. That's why Barbie is so thin, after all...

Glad to see a bunch of folks got in a good run on Xmas. As for me, I ran 10 miles outside...it was about 27 degrees (F) when I started, so I was a bit chilly for the first mile or so until my body fully warmed-up, but after that, it was all good. Not that many folks outside and few cars on the roads make it a nice and quiet day out. I had been debating running inside on the treadmill vs outside in the cold - glad I chose the latter...Mother Nature put on quite a show just before sunset here in the NY metro area.

Hope everyone had a happy Xmas.

i did 1.6 miles outside - week 1 of half marathon training, first 400s workout so although it was short, it was on plan.

I got 3ish miles in but I had to do it yesterday evening. My Christmas afternoon nap lasted a little too long. It's a good thing Santa brought me a Black Diamond Sprinter headlamp for Christmas...it worked great.

Did a 5 mile run. Cloudy and cold (20F), but had lots of layers to stay warm. Went out for chineese food with the family. Greasy and good! I love the holidays!

Whew, my x-mas run was not as good as I had hoped. Warm and sunny day and a very light breakfast lead to bonking around 3 miles into a 7 mile run. Fortunately a downtown bar was open and the bartender happily filled my water bottle with nice cold water which helped me make it back home.

We will take a peek into the lowly saddlebag to see what needs to be in there in case of emergency. Much of this may be common sense, some might surprise you, and some are simply just my opinion.

The boat was being tossed around. Someone noted that there were whitecaps on the waves. Another guy said, “This is going to be challenging.” I began to wonder what he meant by 'challenging'.
