’Tis the season for holiday parties, overeating, and hiding indoors until spring arrives.
Facts are facts, gang. Staying active when the snow starts to fall is pretty much impossible. At least that’s what we tell ourselves. Fortunately, Pittsburgh’s events calendar is out to prove us all wrong.
From festive fun runs to yoga and booze, here are the December events making it a whole lot easier to find some balance and break a sweat while celebrating the holiday season.
Lights Off, Breath On
Jingle Bell Run
Holiday Lights Run
Join the crew from Fleet Feet for a run through the 412, exploring all of the holiday decorations along the way. This run kicks off in Market Square, departing from PPG Place, before hitting every must-see festive display downtown. With a six- and four-mile option, plus a one-mile Holiday Stroll, there’s something for every runner (or walker). Wear your blinking bulbs, festive socks and holiday best (layers, people) for a good time that benefits the UPMC Children’s Hospital Free Care Fund. December 15
Winter Solstice Stroll
Bend, Brews, and Brunch @ Spoonwood
Sweat, sip, and snack your way through a Sunday morning yoga, brunch, and beer sesh at Spoonwood Brewing in Bethel Park. Yes, this is, in fact, all of our favorite things rolled into one. Join Annie Federoff & Kiersten O’Halek of Pure Power Yoga for a 75-minute Vinyasa flow followed by your choice of three brunch options and a beer flight tasting of three beers. Count us in! December 11
Happy Hour Run
Getting motivated to go for a run is hard enough. Going for a run outside, in December, when it’s cold and dark at 5 o’clock is the absolute worst. Unless, of course, you’re running with a bunch of fit friends before grabbing a beer. Sound like something you might be into? Well then, meet up at True Runner in Shadyside for a run around the neighborhood followed by beers a Mario’s. Bonus: It’s on the shortest day of the year…so you’ll likely spend more time beering than running. December 21
Holiday Sparkle @ SHPY
Our friends at South Hills Power Yoga are celebrating the holiday season by giving the gift of free yoga. Just show up for a 90-minute power yoga session on the house. We know what you’re thinking, it doesn’t get much better than that. Oh, but it does! Because they’ll also have a little community social afterward, complete with sparkling wine and cookies. Thanks, SHPY! December 16
Ice Skating @ PPG Place
Bundle up, lace up your skates, and glide around the new and improved ice skating rink at PPG Place. The rink is bigger than ever before, accommodating more than 300 skaters at once! It’s the perfect way to stay active during the winter months (and not a bad winter date idea).
