I know this has nothing to do with running, but here’s a quick tip for making sure your Christmas tree doesn’t fall over.
I’m sure many of you have the famous four bolt stands that lock the tree stump in from four separate points. Sometimes they work and most of the time they don’t.
To get a tighter fit, cut a piece of wood and wedge between the bolt and the stump on two sides opposite each other. If you don’t have wood, you could even use the bottom of piece of the stump that gets cut off before placing in the stand.
