Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell Run

I didn't realize how out of shape I was until I ran the Boley Center's Jingle Bell Run...Mind you, it's only a 5k, yep I'm that lame.  I have to say though, it was so much fun!  The event was family (and Fido) friendly.  There were mom's running with strollers, family's with the pooch, and many speed walkers.  I loved how everyone got so into the spirit of things with their striped socks, red and green tights, and Santa hats.  Multiple bands played live to keep us going (as if we needed any more motivation than the lovely Downtown St. Pete's waterfront).  We started by the Pier, ran by Vinoy Park with all of the Holiday decorations, past the Vinoy Hotel, around North Shore Pool and back...all lit by candles guiding our path.  What a great way to enhance the holiday season!
