Tis the Season!

Happy Holidays, with so many people struggling this holiday season, we would like you to know we are keeping you in our thoughts.

This past weekend Chris and I took part in the Jingle Bell Run supporting the Arthritis Foundation. It was a very cold morning, and we even had some flakes falling during the run (ok enough that I almost when splat a few times). With nearly 3000 participants it was a great turnout for such a deserving cause. As for the success of the race, Chris did not fail to disappoint. He placed in the top 50, and walked away with a medal. Later we found out he was in the top ten of his age group. Great job! I really enjoyed the experience at about the 2 mile marker (that was about the time that my shin pain decided it would settle down enough for me to not need a stretcher). Oh well, I have recently visited the doctor, and we think that this new treatment may be just what I need. I shall keep you posted.

Chris and I are both working hard (well Chris I think a bit more than I), and Jinx is just happy to have a warm body to snuggle up next to during the day. Over the next few weeks I will be sure to try and post some holiday pictures.

Soon Chris will begin his LONG training schedule for his first marathon scheduled for May, the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati, Ohio. This will be a major challenge, but the bigger the challenge the harder Chris seems to work.

Wishing everyone a happy holiday season!

Not the best pictures, but give us a break it was freezing......
