CHRISTMAS COOKIES UNDER ATTACK. Susan Lacke brings a little sanity to the HOLIDAY EATING SEASON with her Competitor.com article “Out There: The War On Christmas Cookies”. She addresses an issue that bothers many who run. Do we exercise enough to cover our treat intake? I don’t think I can but I don’t want to feel guilty about it.
This week I’ve been making my way through the annual pecan-heavy fruitcake my sister has sent the past couple years. I know they aren’t supposed to be delicacies; there are so many jokes about them that it’s hard to admit I like this particular one. December eating is what powers my January gym workouts. There’s nothing so delicious as a good sugar cookie, or peanut butter blossom, snowball, (or more), etc. with a glass of milk or cup of coffee/tea.
What Lacke writes is good for the soul. Find your healthy balance, as she suggests, and fully enjoy the season. Call a truce.

EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
