It’s Friday so I’m linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostesses and visit some other bloggers.
Today’s Topic is: Holiday Traditions
Here are my FIVE:
1. Running Through the Lights in the Park
I do this on my own or with Alyssa as well as during the Albany Last Run. (see my recap here.)
2. Running a Winter Series Race on New Year’s Day.
I ran the Half Marathon once but usually it’s the 3.5 miler. It’s free, doesn’t start until noon and has good refreshments.
3. Attending Holiday Parties
I always enjoy a good party with good friends and good eats.
4. Visiting NYC
I love NYC and I especially love to visit this city during the holidays.
5.Spending time with my Mentee and her kids.
We’ve been together for almost 10 years…and her kids are growing up fast. They are now 11 and 6.
Happy Running! How about you… What are your holiday traditions?
We light the menorah, I usually make latkes one way or another, but other than that, not much in the tradition department. We used to go to the movies on Christmas Day, and maybe we will this year since I know Mr. Judy really wants to see the Star Wars movie, but once everyone started to do it, he wasn’t super interested anymore.
Enjoy your days off from travel!
The menorah is a given and seeing the fam on Christmas Day after or before we go to the movies. The hubby has no interest in Star Wars but there are a lot of other good movies out there. Hope the weather cooperates for my week without travel. Not looking good? Will I see you Sunday?

It depends on how I feel. Been having to take some more rest days. Not that you’d actually see me while running anyway.
Would see you at breakfast. I haven’t been able to run much due to the job so am anxious to get in some miles.

Not necessarily seeing at breakfast, since there are multiple people & depends where you sit.
Plus I don’t need to run much, since I’m not training for anything & taking it easy this week anyway. Depends on how I feel by then.
A great list of traditions! Last year was the first year since I started running that I didn’t do a New Year’s Day race and it definitely felt like something was missing. I’m looking forward to doing it again this year.
Happy New Year. Hope you enjoy the race. It’s a great way to start off the year.
I would love to run a race on New Year’s Day but there aren’t any that are within a reasonable driving distance. Instead, I just run on New Years Day with a few friends!
that’s better than nothing – Enjoy and happy new year!
A fairly new tradition for me is the winter running streak…almost done with the 2017 edition! I also do a short run on Christmas morning, and a few of us meet up on NY Day to do a group run at a lake.
I am so impressed that you can get out there EVERYDAY and run. I have trouble even a few times a week.
Happy New Year. A group run sounds like fun.
I love running through the little town nearby during the holidays. I was getting into a great groove and then got derailed by injury, as you know, so I didn’t get to enjoy it as much this year. Oh well, there’s always next year!
That New Year’s race sounds fun!
Hope you heal quickly.
Our traditions have changed over the years as the boys have grown. We used to have breakfast with Santa…then that stopped. The boys do love when I make my Christmas cookies and I almost forgot about the jelly cookies until my youngest reminded me. The Christmas Village has to go up on the fireplace mantle. I miss when they were little. That was when Christmas was the most fun!
I always go for a Christmas morning run!
Ours have changed too now that the kids are grown and live on their own.
