West Seattle on the run: Bonnie’s 1000th; Sunday’s Holiday Lights Run

Two running notes this afternoon:

First – congratulations to Bonnie, whose friend Robin shared the photo, explaining:

Wanted to share that my friend Bonnie hit 1000 miles in 2012 this morning while we ran on Alki. We are super proud of her!

Second – a Sunday event from the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide and a reminder just sent by West Seattle Runner (WSB sponsor) co-proprietor Tim McConnell:

We have our 2nd Annual Holiday Light run tomorrow night at 6 pm. We will be going about 3 miles at a very slow pace, starting at the store and looking at some of the better lighted houses in the neighborhood and ending at the Helmstetler house. We encourage people to dress festive and bring a can of food for the West Seattle Food Bank. We will meet in the store around 5:50ish and head out around 6. The run should take about 40 minutes plus however long people want to hang out at the Helmstetler house.

AKA, of course, West Seattle Lights. (Where you’ll find free hot chocolate 6-8 pm Christmas Eve, regardless of whether you’re on foot or on/in vehicle.) P.S. WS Runner is at California/Charlestown, second floor.


  1. Thanks Robin. That is a very flattering photo of me. ;)

  15. Wow, this is really cool… I’ve done 100 miles in a month a few times as a challenge but that is motivation and dedication for a full year!!
    Maybe I have a New Year’s resolution idea…
