Deck your shoes with boughs of holly. Or lights. Or bells.
The holiday season is finally upon us. We can probably all agree that some extra cheer is warranted as 2020 comes to a close. Consider the following to take your run from drab to jolly:
Make it lit.
Lace some colour-changing LEDs through your shoelaces to brighten up your routine. Not only will this bring smiles to fellow runners, but you’ll get an extra layer of safety on your nighttime runs, too.
Jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to stride. Make sure the world knows how much you love running and the holiday season with some auditory adornments for your shoes. Hit up your local craft store and find some jingle bells to loop through your shoelaces. Just don’t trip yourself up trying to play your favourite holiday hits while out on the path or trail.
Race like Rudolph.
There might not be a better way for runners to get into the holiday spirit than participating in a festive race. Many races will still be totally virtual or have heavy safety precautions in place, but they’re still plenty of fun. Search for cleverly named races like Jingle Bell 5k, 12ks of Christmas, and more in your area. If it’s too soon to start training for a holiday race, search for a spring race and begin your training this winter. Check out one of our race training plans created by Brooks Beasts coach Danny Mackey.
