Another year, another Santa 5K. This is a very fun race. Once again
I did not make a big effort to get co workers to sign up. I need to do that!
Miscommunication with my son meant I ran it alone. It was still a hoot. There is just something
about seeing all those Santas in one place - RUNNING! There were 1700 of us out there.
Church Street is packed before the start. I do need to get a new suit next year.
You pay less if you are using an old suit but mine looks like Santa
vomited on it last year. It's cheap to begin with so I think I have to say 3 years is enough.
This picture is from the pub that sponsors the race, kind of a cool shot.
I always run slow slow slow in this race and this year was no
exception. Above is the steepest hill. Santas thin out but
of course you are still surrounded.
I loved this little Santa. His father was just pushing him along.
At one point they were pulled over while the little guy had
a bit of a meltdown but I saw them finish so all was good.
Back at the finish and there is just a lovely picture of me below.
I was way overdressed, the opposite of last Sunday. I visited Jameson
and Jaxon after which is always a good way to end a race.
