My knee has finally healed to the point where I am back to my old running self! Which means I run slowly a few times a week in the early morning hours and sign up for the occasional 5k without really training for it. Just before Christmas I was able to do the Jingle Bell Jog 5k with a group of church friends. I ended up taking 2nd place in my age group and turning in one of my faster times.
|Still not enough to beat 9 year old Jackson Brown.|
I'll get you, Gadget!
And two weeks ago I ran the McKeel Legacy Scholarship 5K. It was FUH-REEZING cold. Well, Florida cold, so like 50 degrees with crazy Lake Hollingsworth wind and I almost died. But look at me! I'm with "co-workers"! Socializing! Away from the school!

Yes, I beat all of them :)
Jacob's soccer team came out to volunteer at the race. They were at the finish line cheering everyone on and as I came across I screamed, "GIRL'S SOCCER!!!!!!!!" and they all looked super confused at the weirdo they didn't know giving them a shout out. Man, I really gotta go to more games next year.
|Jacob, thanks for marrying me even though I have hair|
