Baby, it’s cold outside…but that doesn’t mean the 5k season has to come to an end just yet. If you’re worried about burning off the last of the turkey and stuffing or if you’ve already indulged in a few too many holiday cookies and cocktails, the Jingle Bell Run/Walk on December 7th might be the perfect way to return your focus to healthy choices as we head into the heart of the holiday season.
On Saturday, December 7th, join me and hundreds of other crazy runners and walkers at the Dayton Mall for the annual Jingle Bell Run/Walk benefiting the Arthritis Foundation. That’s right, not only are you getting some exercise and burning some calories, but your money benefits a great cause as well. Though this will be my first year participating in the race, I’ve heard rumors that people go all out in dressing in their favorite holiday gear. Personally, I’m on the hunt for a pair of antlers that will stay on my head while I run. Stay tuned.
The run/walk kicks off at 9:00 a.m., with race day registration, packet pickup, and a wellness expo beginning before the start at 7:30 a.m. There’s also a Kids Candy Cane Fun Run that starts at 8:45. Rumor has it that Santa will even be making an appearance at the kids run!
