I have compiled the photos of people who ran either the last day of 2012 or the first day of 2013 (or both!)

I did not take a picture but yours truly squeezed in a 5k on the treadmill right before the party started!
My lovely friend Kalli donned earwarmers and gloves for a neighborhood run through Memphis! She’s training for the 2013 St. Jude Half – right Kalli?!
My dad and his group braved the snow and 31 degrees for a 6.5 K (according to one of their European runners) in Zionsville, Indiana (my hometown).
Good friends Linda and Randy did their 5k trot around Lake Keowee in Salem, South Carolina.
Memphis friends Jen (training for New Orleans Mardi Gras Half), Becca and Amanda (whom I’ve never met!) also braved the cold for a 5 miler on the Greenline!
January 1, 2013
I received this photo from Cynthia Donovan (from Colorado!) who ran her first 5k “in a while”, and she said it was muddy, and I believe her!
This group from YogaFest in Collierville, TN did 5 miles!
Gretchen (just getting back into running) said this about her run on Facebook “I did the walk/run method by blocks not minutes. I would walk 2 blocks then run two blocks. I got a little tired by the end so the ending numbers went like this…14 blocks run/18 blocks walked…32 blocks total. I am pleased since this is only my 4th outing in 12 years. :-0)”
The Memphis girls got back out there on Tuesday!
A bigger group in Zionsville running off the New Year’s Eve tequila shots! Still snowy! (Pops you look a little sleepy….Not pictured: 2 pups).
Close by in Indianapolis, a friend from high school, Ashley, ran 3.5 miles! She’s training for the 2013 Indy Mini (a great race by the way!)
Another Memphis runner, and blogging friend, Sharon, took her girl Ashok for a 5 miler! She’s training for the February Austin Livestrong Half Marathon.
And then there was me! I did a hilly 5k on the treadmill here in Mexico!
Thank you to all the boys and girls and dogs who participated – I wish you happy trails (warmer and drier ones too!) and many healthy miles in 2013. Stay in touch with your training!
