Mariposa is hosting Fun Monday this week and she's added a small twist to the usual resolution thing:
I know most of you probably have their list of New Year's resolution, I'm not going to ask for those. What I'm interested to know are the things you are looking forward to this year. It could be an event, a date, or anything. You can add photos if you want!
I've been looking for pictures and I've found plenty but not from our area. Most of the pictures of this event seem to have snow involved, which is NOT something you would find here.
I believe I've mentioned before that I am planning to participate in a marathon in May 2011 with my friend Christin. Training will start in earnest (as soon as this sore throat and stuffy head and achy ribs goes away). Along the way, there will be various races around here. 5Ks, 10Ks, Fun Runs and that kind of thing. But the one race I'm looking forward to is the Jingle Bell Run, held on the night of Winter Festival.
I remember seeing one of those once. It was dark. The participants wore Santa hats, bells on their shoe laces, and some of them had lights on their bodies as well. It was really a cool experience to watch (and hear) those people running by. It's a 5K, so it's not long, but it sure would be fun!
And by next December, it should just be a walk in the park.
