Gobble Gobble

Happy Turkey Day, folks! We've migrated south for the holiday, so we'll be hitting the pavement in our hometown.

As Thanksgiving officially kicks off the holiday season (read: non-stop eating, drinking and being merry and/or stressed), here's the ever present dilemma: 

How do we enjoy the holidays, while not putting our selves into food comas (thus, less likely to go out for a nice 4 mile run), and not succumb to the holiday weight gain? Especially when all of our favorite holiday traditions revolve around food!

Popular answers might include but are not limited to:
  • Self-discipline (Ha! Easier said than done)
  • Portion control (Again - not exactly one of our strong suits)
  • Run a holiday themed race (i.e. Turkey Trot, Jingle Bell Dash)
  • Run/workout more so we can eat more (but it's so much easier to hibernate and store up for winter)
  • Don't go to a party every night (enough with the tacky Christmas sweater parties, people)
We'll be developing our plan....just as soon as we wake up from our post-turkey naps! 

Gobble Gobble,
