|I don't know how this snow was added, but I'm going with it|
But damn was it cold. I was genuinely concerned about my circulation and wore an embarrassing amount of layers and sized up my Santa suit.
That's right, we all got complete Santa suits! It included pants, a jacket, a hat, a beard and a belt. Additionally, we got a reusable tote with chapstick, a pedometer and a $2 off coupon for the hot bar at Whole Foods Kildeer. I bought a Santa suit for Tim last year and I think it was about $30, so this was a great value.
Anyhow, we wore all our layers and reveled in warming up with all the Santas. It's great that all the runners wear the outfit and the community really gets behind the race. We even saw Kim and her dad while we waited for the race to start. They were hard to find because we all looked alike!
There were two water stations on the course and in the last 1/2 mile, a middle school band was playing Christmas music. It was so awesome!
|Fact: Santas run on Coffee|
I loved this race, it was a blast. We had a great time seeing the sights and watching all the Santas run. I loved the family feel and the goodies. I'd totally do this race again. Note: layering and hot hands are essential for this weather!
