Next week, I'll be heading east for winter break. It will be a challenge to maintain a running routine while dealing with the cold weather plus overall gluttony of holiday celebrations with family and friends. I'd like to run a few times per week but realize that a long run won't happen, and that's totally fine :)

Here are a few things to help keep me on track (Ha! Definitely not planning any track workouts!)....I bought a pair of thin, wool biking socks to wear while running in chilly temps. I'll try to run in the early afternoon when the sun's been out for a few hours. Hot coffee before and after the run always help! And, finally, there's always bribery: If I manage to run every other day (with no 2 days off in a row), I will treat myself to a new running hat. Deal.
