Jingle Bell Run!

This Saturday I ran the 5K Jingle Bell Run here in Chicago! It was so cold outside, but totally worth it! I stayed at the Palmer House downtown and grabbed a bus at 6:30 am to be at the race by 7.

The Palmer House had the most beautiful Christmas decorations!

The giant Christmas tree and Nutcracker was my favorite, everyone was taking pictures by it!

After waking up at 6am, we tied jingle bells to our shoes to make music as we ran.

They only gave you 2 jingle bells in the race packet, so I added a couple more of my own for good measure!

My brother and I bundled up before the race and tried to stay warm.

After the race I was glad to finally get out of my sweaty clothes and change into my new Jingle Bell Run t-shirt!

I heard there was also a Santa run going on this same day, maybe next year I’ll sign up for that one! I could never pass up a good festive holiday run!
