Jingle Bell Run 5k - something to do over winter

If you have been reading my blog for any amount of time [thank the 10's of you that do =)], you know I've helped out with the Arthritis Foundation running and swimming events.  I've swam a 5k for the Penguin Paddle and ran the Jingle Bell Run 5k.

It's that time of year and I'm running the Jingle Bell 5k in Lenexa, KS.  This will be year 2 that the run is in caves!  No running in the frigid cold (which if you read yesterday, I'm not a fan of the cold these days).  I signed up and hopefully the stars will align that both kids will be up for going and the whole family can make it.

I'm signed up, I'm signing Em up, and hopefully some of YOU will find a race to run.  Check out their homepage HERE and hit the drop-down menu to find a run near you.  It's a fun run, well organized and something to keep your legs working in the off season.

You can run as an individual, or in a team.  If you don't run, consider donating.  Even $1 helps!  Announcement and directions to register below.

2011 Jingle Bell Run/Walk * 17501 W. 98th St., Lenexa, KS * Dec. 11, 9 a.m.
We will be back in the cave again this year!  If you missed out last year, this is an underground, climate-controlled, corporate complex in Lenexa.  And of course guest appearances by Santa Claus, Snoopy and others.  Please encourage your spouse, friend, roommate, aunt, neighbor….  to sign up on your team.  They will just need to pay just $30 for the entry fee.
