  • Keep fur out of your face with a chic set of antlers this holiday season.

Sometimes you promise to work out today and don’t make it until tomorrow. Sometimes you set your alarm to wake up for a run at 7 a.m. and don’t put pants on until after lunch. And sometimes your Monday fitness column is published on Wednesday. We roll with it, friends. We persevere. The second best time is now. Each week, the New Orleans Exercist brings you news and events for active living in the Big Easy:

- Free climb, fo’ free: Lycra emporium Lululemon hosts Boulder n’ Brew at New Orleans Boulder Lounge (1746 Tchoupitoulas St.; on Friday (Dec. 4). The party’s capped at 100, so hurry up and get there before the other 500 people who RSVP’d.

- Crescent City Aerial Arts celebrates its new, larger location in Mid-City at 4403 Eurphrosine St. with an open house and student showcase on Saturday (Dec. 5). The studio offers classes in aerial silks (acrobatic routines performed hanging from ribbons of fabric, Cirque du Soleil-style), aerial hoops and aerial yoga.

- Crescent City Classic’s Celebration in the Oaks Run/Walk is at City Park on Saturday (Dec. 5). Lazy runners rejoice: it’s two miles and it’s at 3:30 in the afternoon, the better to appreciate your free admission to the Celebration in the Oaks holiday light display afterward. Late registration is $30.

- Youth running nonprofit Girls on the Run holds its fall 5K race in Audubon Park on Saturday. Outside of the city, GOTR South Louisiana holds 5K races in Lafayette, St. Tammany and Baton Rouge this weekend and next.

- In other news: reports that a clickbait outlet called Roadsnacks has labeled New Orleans one of the country’s "fattiest, laziest" cities. Who the hell are you to judge me, Roadsnacks? Sit down.
