I'm proud to say my son and I completed the 5K in 52:23. We stayed fairly warm except our legs were a little frozen, the temperature was hovering around 30 degrees. We basically walked the whole way, but it's okay (his running training begins soon--ha ha!) I was very glad and excited to have my son with me. It was a fun event, lots of costumes and bells. Everyone was given bells for their shoes and lots of people were adorned with much larger, louder bells. Here we are before we left the house.
Since the event became a Jingle Bell 5K Walk, I still had a run to complete when I got home. So I headed out (with another layer on my legs) and ran a 5K. Here I am after my Jingle Bell Run--note the Bondi Band for the occasion.
All in all, I'd say it was a fabulously successful day!
