Today my friend Kerrie and I ran 5k in the Jingle Bell Run. It was fun! When we registered we received a Santa hat and a jingle bell (that we attached to our sneakers) so we were very spirited (along with everyone else) during the run.
We came in #4 and #5 at 39.03 (that was Kerrie) and 39.05 (that was me)! In reality we came in 166 and 167, but 4 and 5 in our age group... Dreadfully the 40 - 44 age group had way better timing than we did.
We did see two ladies in the run (who actually passed us) and I pointed out to Kerrie that they were us in about 30 years... One of them was wearing a fanny pack (hopefully that won't be me in 30 years).
When I came home I attached my jingle bell to Cali's collar... we now have a jingle horse in the house... or a reindeer. Turn up the volume and listen closely:
