How to Butcher a Fun Christmas Song

Just hear those shoe bells jingle-ing
Ring ting tingle-ing, too
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a 5K together with you

Outside the sun is shining
And no one is whining boo-hoo
Come-on, it's lovely weather
For a 5K together with you

Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up
Let's go
Just go with the flow
I'm running in a 5K and I'm slow

Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up, it's grand
Just saying I ran
We're running along with the song
Of a So Cal wintry land

My cheeks are nice and rosy
And sweaty, smelly am I
I'm running in spite of my heel pain
and I'm hoping I don't cry

Let's take the road before us
And sing a chorus or two
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a 5K together with you

There's a post-race party in the Park this very day
It'll be a wonderful start to my Saturday
I'll be running the course they've set without a single stop
I don't care if my heel hurts so much I have to hop
Hop! Hop! Hop!

There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy
Knowing that I ran my best and that I didn't die
It would make a fine picture for Runner's World, July
These wonderful things are things we remember all through our lives

Just hear those shoe bells jingle-ing
Ring ting tingle-ing, too
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a 5K together with you

Outside the sun is shining
And no one is whining boo-hoo
Come-on, it's lovely weather
For a 5K together with you

It's lovely weather
For a 5K together with you

Jingle Bell 5K... Balboa Park in San Diego
As you've probably guessed, I plan on running the Jingle Bells 5K. My heel is still a bit sore but I'm taking the week off from running and I'm hoping for the best. I've even picked out what I'm going to wear.


Calling all San Diego Bloggers
I know a lot of you just ran the Vegas Rock 'n Roll Marathon... half or full... but I bet your body would just love for you to do a 5K this weekend!  Join me in the Jingle Bells Run/Walk!  You are pretty much guaranteed to finish before me!!  You know you won't be last!  We can dress in Christmassy stuff and have mimosas after the race (gah- that's for you, Cindi!).

I am still hoping to get at least one other person to join me.  I want to have fun and dress up a bit.  Doing that just isn't as much fun when you're alone. But, if I have to do it alone, I will.  And I will have fun! 

OK... I'm done begging.  I'm used to looking like a dork by myself.  ~sniff, sniff~



Needle Me, Baby!
I have another cortisone shot scheduled for next Friday. I can't wait! Sick, I know... but I hardly felt the last cortisone shot I had. Maybe I was just being tough because my boys were with me at the doctor's and they were fascinated by the big needle going into my heel.  If that's the case, they can come with me every time because the experience was delightful!

You are hilarious! That was the greatest song, ever!

Good luck, Saturday. Hope the heel works out and no crying is involved!

Love your song! If I lived near you, I would run that race...there are no Jingle runs here. :(

LMAO, love the song, and um, your description of the last needle experience. I'd have to be brave in front of my son too ;) If i lived closer, I would definitely do the race with you.... hope you get some company!

You are one of the most creative people I know!!! That was awesome!! and I have already copied and pasted-- ready to send to friends.

SORRY I have not been on your blog in a while-- it has been a crazy couple of weeks! I promise to be more of a faithful reader!

That song is completely awesome! I wish I could do the San Diego 5k with you! Partly because it would mean I'd be in warm San Diego rather than snowing Boston haha, but I'm sure we'd have a blast. Hope you find someone to do it with!

If I was there I would dress up with u! Sounds fun! Great song!

Anne said...

Did you create those lyrics? Genius! I'll actually be at the park that morning, but the other end, near the Zoo for a fun run my track club's doing. I'll be with you in spirit, if not body.

X-Country2 said...

That's awesome! You're so creative.

The Happy Runner said...

Ha! I love it!

I hope you get some peeps to run w/you!
