HEATHER LEVINE (Project Coordinator,Sacramento): Sunday I did the Fleet Feet Free Holiday Classic 5K. It was a free race with donation of an unwrapped toy to the Salvation Army. It was very cold (Hey, I’m from California, I get cold easily), but the race was a blast and everyone was in such a good mood. The Salvation Army provided us with donuts and hot cocoa afterwards. Here’s a picture of me and my friends before the race when we kept complaining about how we couldn’t feel our hands (I am on the left).
RUSSELL MILHAM did Saturday'sdawn along the Sammamish river near Seattle; halfway through a 25 mile ride. At 27 degrees, the air was so dense with oxygen it was like having a turbocharger. It felt like, if I could have stopped the rest of the world's clocks so I didn't have to be anywhere, I could have gone on forever without getting winded or tired.
