‘Tis The Season to be Running


We are finally running towards the end of another year, but who is complaining right? After all, kids and teenagers say goodbye to school for the term and adults welcome a period of rest, family bonding, and that long-awaited vacation, as the holiday season jingles its way to our doorstep. So pack away your school uniforms and office attires. Get ready for a month-long (or longer) of running happy!

The holiday season gives you reasons to smile: escaping early morning road traffic jam, being able to do the stuff you have been yearning to do all year, hanging out with friends and family, and enjoying a good hearty home-cooked meal. There’s just so much to do this holiday season and there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to do them all. Well, hold on there pal, don’t forget about living healthy as well! You wouldn’t want to be spending your time worrying about plans and sitting indoors, would you?

Sometimes the best things in life don’t require much of pre-planning or spending money. Something as simple as waking up early in the morning to enjoy the beauty of the morning sun and gearing up for a run could be just the right thing that you need this holiday. Not only it keeps you fit and healthy for the upcoming year, running also allows you to travel to different places, appreciating the beauty of what’s outside your front door.

To assure you that we’re with you every step of the way this holiday, have a good listen to some hype tracks that will keep you on your feet as you train on and push for that extra mile. Go nuts this season and maybe even throw in some groovy dance moves into your run as you jam along with the music. It’s cool to run, it’s even cooler to dance, but it’s coolest to be having fun while doing both. Here’s a playlist to keep you company on your run and groove out to, throughout this festive-filled season:
