Anyway - my dear friend Ashely and I were planning on running last Saturday. She also mentioned she signed up for the Jingle Bell run - and encouraged me to do so as well. So I checked with William and went and registered that day - it was the last day before the prices went up.
TURNS OUT...William is on call! ACK! And because of that I'm not going to get to go...resulting in my FIRST did not start (DNS).
There is a slim chance his coworker will take over for the money. (Hourly coworker who is perpetually broke...) So I've got my fingers AND toes crossed...because I was actually looking forward to it. I was marveling in the fact I signed up for the 4 miler and the 1 miler (only $5 more) and knew I would be able to complete it NO PROBLEM.

The GOOD news is I made a personal record...the 4 miles was done in 50:51. And I owe that entirely too Ashley. She made me run in the wind (something I tend not to do - those seem like good walk breaks haha) and she tends to run faster...I definitely need to run with her more often! :)
I've taken some photos from my various runs lately - and you'll be seeing them pop up on Wednesdays. We've had some gorgeous scenery - one of my many reasons for running!
