A Running Playlist for the Holidays

The weather outside may be frightful and the fire very delightful, but we have races to run! Don’t let the end of season and cold weather stop you from keeping your training going. Get in the holiday spirit and keep motivated with this holiday playlist!  There are some classics and some unexpected ones that made the list.  This is a perfect pairing for an easy 3-5 miles around the neighborhood to marvel at the Christmas lights.
