12 Days of Christmas - Runner Style

As you can tell from our recent posts with Christmas crafts (here and here), we really love the Christmas season.  With all the excitement and "chores" for the holidays, it can be easy to forget about your workout. With big races in early 2013 for us, we don't have a choice but to stay on track with our training schedules. And with that, figured it was a bit apropos to fuse two of our favorite things - a traditional Christmas song and running.  So without further adieu, here is our version of the 12 days of Christmas, runner style.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me....
