Christmas, Christmas-time is here...
I'm feeling a little nervous here. Up until now, Siobhan has been our newsletter-writer-extraordinaire and I'm a bit worried whether this one will measure up or not. On the other hand, I put on a dress and wear high-heels at least once a year, so what do I care?
'Running' and 'Christmas' go together like 'Rupaul' and 'Eleganza'. What better way to EARN all those sumptuous sweets (forget about burning them off - that's what January is for) or excuse yourself from awkward family conversations* (*insert awkward family conversation here). It's also about the excitement you feel when receiving that piece of running kit you've been coveting all season, hearing the crunch of frost under your shoes on a sparkling silent winter day, and clinking champagne flutes with friends at an annual bash.
So don't let the cold weather keep you in. Christmas-time is one of the best times of the year to get out there and run.
