2011 Jingle Bell Run

 My son set up a team to walk or run in the Jingle Bell Run in Portland on Sunday. It is always a festive event.  This is all three of us after the race. I was so thrilled that I came in at 32 minutes, 29 seconds. I've never finished a 5k under 35 minutes and I felt good while running it.
 That's my daughter on the left in red and green- almost to the finish line.
Out of 3300 walkers and runners I'd have to say at least half try and dress up a little. I wore an elf hat and striped elf stockings.  That was my contribution to the festivities.  Ho-Ho-Ho!!

How will you stay active this December?


  1. Lori,
    Looks cold, but a lot of fun. I wish I were a real runner instead of entering events once to twice a year. my running is always mixed with my four mile walks except in the winter. I do get a St Judes run in in Feb in our home town and some running on the treadmill which I hate.
    Your doing so good, a great mentor to our team!

  2. good for you..I am doing the holiday 1/2 5 k next weekend.

  3. Looks like a fun way to get warm. Well done on the PB!

  4. Well done - I am just trying to keep moving forward this month. The cold and short days is making me have treadmill envy!

  5. Yoehoe, well done. I can't wait to get back to running, since I started to love it...

  6. Congratulations to all of you, I'm impressed.

  7. Are you running the Holiday Half Sunday morning? I'll be there. My outfit is halfway in the works. I have awesome red & white striped socks with faux fur tops. I will be wearing the race shirt...which is very festive. I'm not sure about a hat, though. I don't like running with anything but my visor. Hmmmm. I need to think it through. lol
