Members of Best Foot Forward (BFF), a local women's running group, have been drawing holiday pictures using their run trackers. Oak Parker Regina K., a BFF member, came up with the hashtag #drawcember, and BFF members have been running in holiday shapes, including a gingerbread house, festive bow, a snowman, a stocking, a Christmas tree and a menorah, and posting them online.

BFF describes itself as "a running club in the near western suburbs of Chicago supporting women runners — from walkers to Boston-bound speedsters — in gaining confidence, making friends, and running wild!" For more information on BFF, go to
