Get in the Holiday Spirit with the Jingle Bell 5K Run/Walk for Arthritis at Legacy Village

This time of the year can be tough. The days are shorter and we don't get to run or walk outside as much as we want. To help keep the winter blues away, I like to stay active by doing fun races around the holiday. This year I plan on participating in the Jingle Bell 5K Run/Walk for Arthritis at Legacy Village. The race takes place on Sunday, 12/13 at Legacy Village. It's a 9am start too so you can even sleep in. Since it's at Legacy you can get some of that holiday shopping done afterwards!

The race is ideal for competitive runners as well as those who would rather walk. For those who prefer chip timing advance registration is $35 or $30 for the untimed 5K. There is also a 1 mile family fun run/walk option, which is great for getting the family members involved. Registration for that event is $30. 

Arthritis is a disease that affects many people. The Great Lakes Regional Arthritis Foundation has this event to help raise funds for research and treatment So, throw on a costume or your best red and green race attire and come out and celebrate the holiday with a fun run for a great cause! To register visit 

I will be giving away two race entries to some lucky winners! To enter simply comment and tell me why you would like to run or walk in the Jingle Bell 5K. Winners will be announce early next week!
