Happy Friday!! Does anyone have fun Christmas plans this weekend? I’m definitely planning to cram lots of Christmas movies, food, music, and walks into my weekend. As always, this week was full of all sorts of great articles and blog posts. Here’s a link up to a few of them:

Running Farther, Faster, and Longer Can Kill You: This post discussed some more “extreme” forms of running, and discussed moderation as the key to health in this area of exercise. Interesting thoughts…

Best Body Fitness Round 4 Open: Tina from best body fitness has just opened signups for her 4th round of boot camp. Check it out!

Thursday Thoughts: Alzheimers: Molly wrote about her experience with a family member who has alzheimers. This post is great, and I encourage you to head over and check it out (and maybe give her a bit of encouragement too!).

Roasted Tomato Basil Soup: This soup looks perfect for a chilly winter night!

Instamotivation: For those days where you’re feeling a bit down about yourself or need a little kick to get moving and be healthy…

Peace On Earth: When Holidays Don’t Feel So Joyful: Ok, it’s kind of weird to include one of my own links here, but I really love the story that’s included on this post. I mean, I really, really, really like it. Check it out if you haven’t already!

Now it’s your turn to share! Do you have any fun plans or anything Christmas-y or for Hanukkah this weekend? Also- feel free to post a link to one of your own blog posts from this week in the comments!
