Cold legs but strong legs

Congratulations to all who participated in the 26th annual Strong Legs Run Saturday. I know I wasn't alone in groaning when the alarm clock went off and the temperature was only about 30 degrees. Brr.

But the cold didn't keep people away. It's quite a bizarre contradicition to be simultaneously sweating and freezing, and it seemed to take at least a mile before my legs were moving at a normal pace. All the same, I finished the 5k (I walked, of course) in about 51 minutes. Here are a few pictures from the event.

LaTonia, Ruth Bell and me pre-race. Note my Santa Claus-like red nose. Did I mention it was cold?

On the other side of the finish line. Woo!
