Last night was Childress’ Jingle Bell 5k run. Thirty-eight people showed up to run. About a month ago, I told my friend Kirby that I thought it would be fun to run the race in a Santa suit. He told me if I’d do the Santa suit, he’d dress up like an elf.
The coolest part was during the run there were kids screaming as I ran by, “MOM, SANTA CLAUS JUST RAN BY OUR HOUSE!” I don’t know how many times I hollered “Merry Christmas” and “Ho Ho Ho,” but it was quite a few. One driver who didn’t yield to me and made me stop, made my naughty list.
It was a fun run that I didn’t take to serious when it came to how fast I finished. I do have a new appreciation for the Big Guy in the red suit that somehow delivers presents to everyone in the world’s hottest suit!
Here are a couple of pictures. You can find more info and pictures here and here.
(Pre-race) Kirby was the biggest elf anyone had ever seen.
(Post-race) Q, myself and Ryan. I was SO glad to take that beard off. I could finally breath!
