Thanksgiving Day turkey trots got thousands of people from Maine to Southern California up and running before the day of overindulgence kicked in.
We say, "Bravo!" to everyone who participated in this important step.
Everyone knows the holidays are a slippery slope — and many of you are headed for weight gain. According to a recent study, the average gain will be about 0.4 percent of body weight.
By the time New Year's rolls around, that will be six pounds if you weigh 150.
But that's not the only slippery slope you want to avoid during the holiday season. Winter slips and falls on icy, snowy ground send hundreds of thousands of folks to the emergency room — 20,000 in Ontario, Canada, alone.
Fortunately, some boots do have the traction you need. To get your winter off to a running start, look for slip-resistant soles made from Green Diamond or Vibram Artic Grip (they show up on some very popular brands).
Slip on a pair of those ice-defying puppies, and you'll slide into the new year without a worry.
