Default Maintainers Using Movement to Stay Sane Through the Holidays



Remember that this way of life is only partly about looking great in holiday clothes.

It's also about keeping moving to stay healthy and strong ... to make a New Year's resolution to exercise less necessary ... to enjoy being alive and discovering what your body is capable of doing ... to relieve the stress of having to complete additional tasks related to the holidays.

That's why we're maintainers moving through December, all the way to the edge of a new year.

Michele, sorry, my laptop froze when I was writing here, and when I revisited the site to re-do the entry, I forgot to respond to you a second time. Yeah, it's a fun photograph, though personally I don't think I'll ever get to the point where I would run outside in public in a sports bra with my abs showing, never mind the outdoor temperatures.

I said the same thing Saef, then I found myself three miles into a 15k and was so overheated I was nauseated and dizzy. Ended up tying my shirt around my waist, and didn't even really notice. No comments from anyone, no one pointed and laughed. I even looked at the picture at the end of the race for a second. or two. LOL
