Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - Some local people combined the holidays with exercise on Christmas Eve.

Runners hit the snow covered roads and jogged three miles with family and friends.

The best part - when they were done running, there was eggnog and cookies waiting for them.

"Eggnog and cookies maybe not the best recovery items after a run, but it's delicious all the same, it's a nice little reward for getting out there," said Sean Hendrick, who organized the "Egg Nog Jog."

Organizers say the idea behind this run was to get people to stay active this times of year, when it's tempting to stay inside, and eat lots of holiday food.
