Sometimes you just have to trick yourself into thinking that it is really a beautiful day for a run. As you can see from the pictures, it was a little dark and little (ha ha) wet... But we had a good time anyway with many in our group making 10k PR's.
This race -- the Jingle Bell 10k -- and other good ones, are put on by www.runwashington.com Check them out, they're a good group! The Jingle Bell, in particular, kicks off the holidays for me. Little bells -- we tie them on our shoelaces --are given out and its so festive to listen to us jingle, jingle down Ohio Drive.
This is what I saw: santa, santa hats (lots), reindeer antlers, elf ears, striped stockings, flashing red and green necklaces, flashing red noses, and combinations of all of the above.
This is what I learned: a hairdryer works wonders to warm up the body after a serious chill has been caught. Whew :)
Cheers and it was (not!) a beautiful day for a run!
