Tonya Carter loves living in Colorado. In fact, she loves it so much that she was inspired to write her own version of the "Twelve Days of Christmas" -- celebrating all the "amazing outside activities," she says. In fact, Colorado has so many amazing activities that "the song was not long enough to include them all."

Here, for your holiday enjoyment, is Tonya Carter's "Twelve Days of Fitness."
