Yep...I ran in a Grinch shirt! I also had some festive little sparkly garland ponytail holders that took large amounts of hair out with them last night. Not good, definitely not good. Once again my trusty Bondi Band did not let me down. Love those things! I had on a tech turtle neck and arm warmers underneath that. I wore my beloved leather gloves that were issued to me in Navy bootcamp, Feetures! socks, and my favorite thermal leggings. I talked about them in my Running Warm on a Budget post; one of my most popular blog posts. Since it was a Jingle Bell Run, we were all given two sets of bells to put on our shoes. How fun and probably incredibly irritating, but I was wearing my yurbuds !
My bells and my car key...ha! As you may already know, I am results

My 1st 5k I ran in 34:37, that was on the 4th of July. 8:03 seconds off of my time in just 5 months. Yesterday's PR beat my previous by 21 seconds. I love that and I am really proud of myself. I am also still amazed that I am doing it...HaHa!It wasn't easy. I was wet, I was cold and I wanted it over. But I had an hour drive home and I was on Cloud 9! I still am. I love this running thing and I love the people it has brought into my life. I can say, without a doubt, that running has changed my life!Have a great Monday, my friends!
