A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS 5K

5K time – 56:21 minutes
Total walk – 57:42 minutes
Map My Walk

This 5K was of the buy-a-medal, do-as-you-will variety. I have decided that I prefer the vicarious travel aspect of having my virtual walks tied to an IRL location, i.e. zoo fundraisers, marathons etc. However, this was last minute. Take what I can get.

… muddy … need a paved place for my daily mile … haven’t done a official walk here … hmm, the total trail is 2.6 miles … that’s close to 3.1 … I smell a 5K …

A quick Internet search and I was signed up for this.

I get the mental satisfaction of finishing a 5K. I get a medal. I get a seasonal blog post. Most importantly, I get the impetus to continue wandering around the shopping mall parking lot for half a mile to finish the 5K.

“Broke many of the rules prevalent for animated holiday specials during the 1960s: it didn’t make use of a laugh track; real children were used for the character voices instead of adult actors imitating children’s voices; and Biblical references were used to illustrate the true meaning of Christmas.” IMDB: A Charlie Brown Christmas, Trivia

Stay safe. Stay sane.

  1. Congratulations on the walk!

    I found the link at the end of the post fascinating. I hadn’t known the background of the show. Thank you.

  2. A Charlie Brown Christmas is my all-time favorite, followed closely by Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the original animated one narrated by Boris Karloff)
