One of the challenges during the holidays is staying in shape with all the sweets and treats tempting you throughout the season. It can also be hard to build up the enthusiasm to exercise when it is cold and snowy outside and so warm and cozy inside. Well, one solution is to find a way to make your workout wear a little festive. Here’s some ideas that are easy to do and a lot of fun.

Santa hats

Santa hats are easy to find and usually light enough to not be a problem on your run. You can even go the entire Santa suit like the runners above and really keep Santa from being a bowl full of jelly this holiday season.

Scarves and Gloves

There are all kinds of light scarves and gloves that will be a great choice for a run. You can either find a holiday design or you can add cute embellishments yourself using glue or a sewing machine. Either way it can be a super cute way to get in the spirit of the season .

Running Tutus, Skirts and Leggings
