Jingle Bell 5K

So I thought that minimal training and Christmas Cheer alone would get me through the Jingle Bell 5K this weekend, but no, sadly it did not. Although I eventually made it past the finish line, it was 4 minutes past my normal time. And I wasn't even hungover! But the rusty running body caught up with me. After seeing how many people got decked out with Xmas Cheer, I have to say, all and all a really fun time! The weather was perfect (38degrees and sunny), there were 4,500+ runners and walkers, and I even saw a runner with a Menorah hat, so it was great to see Hanukkah in the house! Some pix from the day... I'm pretty sure this medal was for 1st place.A true lunch of champions after the race

I already started training for next year's Jingle Bell 5K, and sewing a Christmas Tree running suit together!

I see Poor Little Rich Girl in one of those pictures. AKA Davis. AKA I totally saw the entire bunch of you runners when I was lazily waiting outside for my greasy French Toast breakfast at Kelly's Diner in Ball Square...right where I live. Congrats on being able to run a 5k, I was in awe of all the runners who could get out there and do it. :]

I wouldn't fret about 4 minutes! I tried to run a 5K at Thanksgiving and I couldn't walk for the next two days!

Looks like you guys had a great time!
