Got there at the last minute because I was thinking it started at 5 instead of 4 pm. Large crowd, great energy. Saw three people I knew, two of whom were running with timed chips trying to make a personal best. Both actually did beat their best times, one of them by 4 minutes. I think Gina finished in 42 minutes and I forget how many seconds. She was pretty over the moon about her time.

I walked the 5K in 1 hour 12 minutes. There were not too many people behind me, but I wasn't last!
I pushed because for me that was a 24 minute mile which is what I usually average but this time it was without a single stop for a 30 second to two minute break like I do on our Saturday training walks. By the time I was done my back was hurting pretty good, but that's okay, I sat for a while and was fine. I'm hoping Gina or Mary posts their pictures today because I left without my camera and my phone died about 1 mile in because of using it so much all day without charging it. Gina got one of me crossing the finish line. I'll put some up as soon as I can steal some of theirs off of facebook. I didn't really feel like doing it yesterday, but I'm glad I did because I'm not having to live with any regrets today, and because I felt like I really honored my mom by doing this.

As much as I'd like to, this event just isn't going to work out for me. :(

The Jingle Bell 5K is getting in gear for a great walk/run on Saturday, December 15th at 2:00 p.m. benefiting the Arthritis Foundation. The early registration which ends November 24th, is $30.00 which gets you a timing chip for your shoe if you plan to run, jingle bells for your shoes, and a long sleeved event tshirt.

The 5K will start at Brackenridge High School and run down the Mission Reach section of the River Walk. I've formed a San Antonio Spark Team on their site and have signed myself up for this event. I will be walking it, but others can choose to run if they wish.

This 5K is special to me for many reasons. I have several forms of arthritis as well as lupus which is an auto-immune disease with links to arthritis. It is also the first 5K I participated in when I began my journey to health 2 years ago. I walked it that day in honor of my mother. Now I walk it in her memory.

Please consider signing up as a participant and joining our team, San Antonio Spark Team. Look for us on the sign up by clicking the link below. We will be wearing Jingle Bells and dressing up in Jingle Bell/Christmas/Reindeer/Santa whatever themed outfits. This first link is to the main page of the site where you can access all the details. The second link is to our very own team page for the walk.
