Jingle All The Way

2 Comments

Today was the local Jingle Bell 5K run for arthritis. I’m in no condition to race, but I can’t say I’m heartbroken since we are under a wind advisory with 45 mph gusts. There is no way the strong wind pushing with or against me running would help my injury. So instead I took the role of helping with the Often Running store set up at the event.

Before everyone arrived, getting things organized.

I started working at 9am and we were busy from race registration at 10 am until race start at 1pm. Time passed quickly and I got to sell some great shoes and accessories, plus catch up with people and meet some new customers. In spite of the weather we had a great turn out for the race, including our Often Running Racing Team. Everyone knew to play it conservative out there. Better to be safe in such crazy windy conditions.

I forced Mitch to take a picture with me. Doesn’t he look thrilled? šŸ˜‰ We are sporting the adidas ORRT sweatshirt, which is one of my faves.

Congrats to all those that raced in the crazy conditions! I’m sure it was a great strength workout as well as increased mental toughness.

I went home to get in my recovery workout of walking, stretching and P90X Ab Ripper.

  1. I’m glad you aren’t heartbroken about it-and I wouldn’t be either. Ridiculous. Looks like you got quite a strength training workout in though. šŸ™‚
