Leslie and I (Snow Miser/Heat Miser) decided to stay together and we were successful. I was dying but I stayed with her. It ended up as a PR for her and a post-injury PR for me. It was fun!
What would you do differently?:

Not much... Not sure wine, French fries, and a candy bar are appropriate fuel, but whatever....

Warm down:

Just walking up to get our free beer!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training coming off injury.

Event comments:

This is my favorite race of the year. It's become a fun, festive family tradition.

In November of 2000, I noticed that I was losing the feeling in my toes. The sensation traveled up my body and within a week, I was nearly 80% paralyzed.

First, with your upcoming 5K, I strongly advise you to check out the “Couch to 5K” training schedule. This training schedule is a GREAT way to get back into running safely and wisely.
