Moms RUN San Jose

For Moms who run, by Moms who run…Moms RUN this Town!

Running in a Winter RUNNER LAND!

on January 21, 2013

Running during the winter is not that much different than running during the summer here in San Jose, CA, but it was a little chilly (read: 60 degrees) this past Saturday when our chapter ran our 1st Annual Moms RUN this Town Winter RUNNER LAND Virtual 5K/10K/Half Marathon.

We had 12 moms attend (13 including me) and some moms came just to cheer the rest of us on.  We also had a couple of dads and a handful of kids join in the festivities.  This was our biggest turn out yet for a group run (12 is about 1/4 of our current membership).

Maybe it was the lure of the bling…although some ladies showed up just to run  and didn’t even sign up for the medal.

Ooooo - shiny!! Love the sparkle of our Winter Runnerland Medal

Maybe it was getting recognition for running a route that we run almost weekly…although, the “bow tie” route that the half marathoners had to do which took them past the start line/finish line/water stop 3 times probably wasn’t a favorite.

Or maybe it was just the camaraderie of getting together with other like minded women to run on a beautiful Saturday morning.

Yeah – that was probably it!!
