I did it!!!! I ran my very first 5K ever!!! I was really nervous that I wouldn't be able to finish, but I DID IT!!! My time was 40 minutes and 34 seconds which I'm really proud of. J2 (on the left) ran it in 30 minutes flat. She rocks for her 10 minute mile! She's my running hero. (By the way, our shirts said Jingle and had little jingle bells on them!) The last I checked, the 2008 Jingle Bell Run for the Arthritis Foundation raised $84,028. I loved it and I've already signed up for another 5K on the 20th!
