Jingle Bell Run 5K

Race started at 9:00 AM on Saturday, December 7. It was a very cold morning, close to 2 degrees F. I warmed up just a little bit before the race. A beautiful girl sang the national anthem before the start of the race. Lots of people were wearing Jingle Bell customs. Ran the first mile or mile and a half next to a lady (apparently #68). Passed this other young guy too (#100).  I counted about eight guys before me in the first mile, but I guess I was able to pass four people, because I ended fourth place overall. Finished in 21:21 min (official time). Got a nice medal too. James Toomey got first place overall (17:59 min) and was awarded a nice trophy. Happily, all my friends received medals. Results Link
