Runs & Walks Get Revelers Dashing Through The Snow | Print |  E-mail

by Arthur Guerin

Well, we hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving dinner, and the week or two of leftover turkey, stuffing, pie and potatoes that inevitably follow.

Figuring that you might have added a pound or two to your otherwise taut and trim bodice, we’d like to encourage you to maintain a bit of balance in your life.

Without getting too extreme, we suggest hauling yourself off the couch and out the door. There’s a pair of light-hearted opportunities awaiting to gently nudge you back toward the physical specimen you deserve to be – or become.

Throw on your holiday finery or your basic running suit, strap some jingle bells to your shoes (provided in your registration packet), and head over to Wash Park on Sun., Dec. 11, for the Arthitis Foundation Rocky Mountain Chapter’s Jingle Bell Run 5K.

The event begins at 8a.m., and the jingling sounds of the season will fill the air while race-watchers throw down another cup of java to fight the chill and cheer on their favorite racer.

Runners and walkers are encouraged to solicit pledges to fund the critical research undertaken with Arthritis Foundation support. Complete info, visit arthritis. org/chapters/rocky-mountain or call 303-756-8622, ext. 230.

You’ve got one final choice facing you as the year comes to a close. You can “wait until next year” to begin a journey toward a skin you feel at home in, or get yourself on your feet, delay your celebration by an hour or two, and join in the 27th running of the Resolution 5K Run/Walk, on New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, 5p.m., in Washington Park.

With the change of seasons this race is run in the dark. Participants are asked to leave their pets home for safety’s sake.

The Resolution 5K Run/Walk is once again sponsored by Wahoo Fish Taco, and a Wahoo’s Fish Taco party and other refreshments will follow the run, as well as an opportunity at great prize drawings.
