When is the Jingle Jam? I am all about running races, but I am scared of the cold!! I am a big wimp. I have already started running on the treadmill, I can't imagine what February would be like:)

Thanks! My son doesn't run but wants to spend some time with me so I thought the Jingle Jam would be a fun thing for us to do together--I'm excited he wants to spend time with me and he is excited about the hot chocolate afterwards!!

The Red Flannel Run I've heard is a lot of fun...but I'm a little bit of a wimp when it comes to cold weather. Just bought warm running clothes this past weekend so I will get out and run as long as I can stand the cold so I can be ready!

I haven't done either one, but I do walking 5Ks. I just did one on Saturday and loved it! I try to do as many as I can each year. Good luck-You can do it!!!

I am finally ready to sign up for my first race. I'm not quite to the point in my training plan that I am running for 30 minutes non-stop, but I am getting close. My son and I are signing up for the Jingle Jam in Des Moines since it's a "fun run."

I am thinkging I really want to do the Red Flannel Run in February, also. Anyone who is doing/has done either one of these want to tell me what to expect?

Thanks in advance!!
