Running for a Cure

Many men & women in my family suffer from arthritis. 

I'm on my way to being one of them.

I came across a billboard advertising a fun 5K Jingle Bell Run to help raise money for arthritis. 

Jake & I walk/jog a few times a week. Since we have started, I've been wanting to participate in a run. Once I saw the advertisement for this run, I had to sign up.

I was a little nervous taking my 15 month old with me in the weather but I bundled him up nicely & he was good to go.

We tied bells to our shoestrings & put reindeer ears on our head & ran for the cure!

I must say it wasn't as hard as I was thinking it was going to be.

Surrounded by that many people running for the same thing you are sure was encouraging!
