Today our Race for Rehab team braved the first snow storm of the season for our first team run! I ended feeling a bit discouraged, as my runs recently have not been my best but have at least been feeling good. I learned today that my sneakers , which I love!, have absolutely no traction in snow. As a result, my feet were sliding all over the place with every hit and my obscure ankle muscles were put to the test. I ended up doing only 3 miles, but also have the Somerville Jingle Bell 5k tomorrow.
I am so excited to be on this team running for Spaulding Rehab this year. It truly is an awesome group of people and I can’t wait to keep sharing my journey with all of you! Enjoy the pics!
BOCO Gear has donated this awesome winter running headgear to our team this year!
A really cool treat, getting to meet the Boston Marathon Race Director, Dave McGillivray. He not only inspired us pre-run with his amazing story (which after all these years he still tells with the most incredible passion and emotion), but he also ran with us and agreed to a selfie!
Following our run, my long time friend and now current RFR teammate and I had our annual ornament day with some of our other friends and all their kiddos. We were inspired by our snowy run to do some Spaulding Rehab themed ornaments this year!
Isn’t #crosstrainingwithcrafts a thing? Can’t believe we were the first picture tagged with this 😉
All in all, it was an awesome day, exactly how I like my weekends to be! And I have an awesome new ornament for my tree!
