Do We Run More On Christmas? And what about New Year's?
We know more runners run on Thanksgiving than on any other holiday. The threat of abundance in the form of a good meal is enough to send thousands of us out for a pre-emptive 5-K (or 10-K or whatever). So where does Christmas stack up in the must-run-on-this-holiday hierarchy? And do runners in the U.S. behave the same on that day as runners in say, France or Mexico? What about New Year's Day–do runners the world over start the year off with a bang, or a rest day?
