Spread that Holiday Cheer!

Nothing like a white Christmas (or Hanukkah!)
Happy 4th day of Hanukkah (5th night starts tonight so we're on the 4th day) and Merry Christmas Eve! I went for a run today at Fox Run Regional Park, a very hilly park a few miles from my house. I've done a lot of training runs here in the past, and it's great for building leg strength!

One loop of the park is about 3 miles with somewhere around 400 feet of gain. Today it felt like I was going up the whole time. But wow- what an amazing day - sun shining, snowy hills, and plenty of fresh air. I definitely appreciate my surroundings!

For the rest of the day I will kick back a bit and cook dinner for my husband and his parents. If you are interested, the menu is cornish game hens with a red currant & raisin sauce, roasted sweet potato spears with bacon vinaigrette, mixed vegetable, and french silk pie for dessert. His mom usually cooks a meal so this year I decided it was my turn!

I hope you all enjoy time with friends and family, and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings no matter where you are.

Happy Holidays!
