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? 😉 We are sporting the adidas ORRT sweatshirt, which is one of my faves.
I went home to get in my recovery workout of walking, stretching and P90X Ab Ripper.
