The run itself went through SeaWorld and was one of the loudest runs I've ever participated in. I'm pretty sure 75% of the 4500 runners had on jingle bells.
The coolest part? Well, there were a couple. 1) The man in the photo that ran as Buddy the elf. 2) The snow that they had, it was pretty awesome.
Like I mentioned above, Michelle and I PR'ed on this run in a big way and we can in sub 40 minutes, something we have been shooting for. Yahoo!
Jillian acted like she was a pro runner and spent at least 10 minutes stretching out in a similar way that all of the other runners were.
The kids races were pretty cute. They separated the boys from the girls, which Aaron was not a fan of, he thought he was going to be able to run with his sister.
Jillian clipped along like a true pro and looks like one of those girls that you hate when you see them running. Her hair flowed perfectly, it was disgusting (in a I'm just super jealous kind of way).
Aaron, like I mentioned, was pretty peeved that he couldn't run with his sister and he was not a happy camper when he came to the finish. He did great though and didn't give up.
Each of them received a finisher's ribbon and a whale tail that they now have hanging with all of my medals.
We all had a great time and I am so glad we were all able to do this together.
Thank you to all the volunteers and organizers that made this run so much fun!!!
