Jingle Bell Run - Little Rock By Clark The Little Rock Jingle Bell Run, benefiting the Arthritis Foundation, was my first formal race, so it holds a special place in my heart. I ran it again this year with friends and got my best 5K time of the year; very pleased. Along the way, another runner told me that I was brave to run barefoot. I thanked her but told her that I had over 400 barefoot running miles this year so this was easy. I don't really know how many barefoot miles I've run but I do have over 400 miles for which I've kept track. I did a tally in my head and think I have 44 miles in races alone: four 5K, three 10K and one half. It's been a good year.
