Fort Myers Jingle Bell Run - DDD 5K (Updated with Race Results)

By
Real Estate Agent with Downing-Frye Realty, Bonita Springs, FL 676419

Another bridge.  This one was murder.  The 3D running club organized the 5K Jingle Bell run in Centennial Park, Fort Myers, Florida. The race went over the Caloosahatchee river bridge to North Fort Myers and back. Murder I say! I felt this bridge was more of a challenge than the Cape Coral bridge. 

It had not dawned on me (I've never run this race before) that it's called the jingle bell run because they give you shoe laces with bells on them and the whole running crowd jingles.  I tied my laces and bells to my camelback and jingled almost all the way.  I ran so hard I blew my bells off! 

The winners are generally "machines" with the 3D running club, they may actually be cyborgs.  Amazing creatures with not a scrap of fat on them.  They're generally done running by the time I hit the 1/2 way point.  ::tip of hat::

Someone has to bring up the rear, right?

Enjoy the video and listen for the jingle bells.

Oh, 29:02 on this one.  I don't think I'll even get listed on the race results, though it's a decent time for my age bracket, because Al Gorithm turned my time in at the mens desk.  All that sufferin' for nothing.

Yay, Chris!!!!  Loved the jingling, not surprised you blew off your bells.  ;o)

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Congratulations!  In tribute I am going to wear bells on my sneakers when I walk on my treadmill today.  I doubt I'll blow them off however.

Bill, that is funny.  The winner finished in 15 and change.  A 'borg I tel you!

Aziz, I'm in the 28's ususally.  This race had a monster bridge that had to be crossed twice.

Marlene, me too

The masses:  Blowing off bells = running so hard your bells fall off.

Bob, I barked out loud first thing this morning.  You're the man!

Sarah, had I known about this race we would have embarassed the kids years ago.  Don't worry I made up for it elsewhere.

Linda, Double dog dare you.  Have your husband video it! LOL

Looks a little dangerous running in the dark.  Around here you could wind up with a pretty bad twisted ankle if you hit a small pot hole the wrong way.

I took third place, again.  As it turns out the chic just a few paces in front of me was second place.
