The Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis

Standard

In December, I am going to be walking in the Jingle Bell 5K Run/Walk for Arthritis!! It is being held December 9th, in Seattle. This is the first event I have ever participated in and I am very excited. I know it is only 5K (3.1 miles) but I am very out of shape and this is the kick start I need to get much healthier. My daughter sent me a training program call “Couch to 5K” which I am trying to stick to. I need to stick to it better but I am trying.

The Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis is being held all over the country and is sponsored by the Arthritis Foundation. So far they have raised $1,635,216! Something I didn’t know was that there are 140 types of arthritis. I am guessing most people don’t know that, it was a big surprise to me.

I will be reporting on my training regularly and if you would like to help out with my fund raising please please click the Jingle Bell 5K link above.
