Santa parkrun! :)

Santa parkrun! :)

it was our Santa parkrun yesterday! I got a Santa dress on ebay as i thought it would be more comfy to run in , and i was right! :) no chaffed legs for me! :) and it stayed up and everything! loads of us there, 204 in total, and some fun outfits including a big cardboard gift box(much faster than me still!) , a hairy guy in a fairy mini dress , and a cute penguin! also highlight of seeing my BF Tracy's husband and sons in matching elf outfits, and her in a very tight red dress glitzed up dress which was a TAD revealing, and prompted her to keep her jacket on for most of the run!!!!

very muddy, so ended up fairly splattered, there was a great moment when a lady imfront rebelled against the guy who kept jumping in the muddy puddles and they had a splashing contest to soak each other, funniest part of the run!!! :) Boz ran with me, a bit in personal trainer mode, which prompted a few rude words from me! :X but made it round in 31.15, only 1 min off my PB so not bad considering the muddiness! :)

at the end we got running santa medals! didn't expect that! and they are engraved too on the back! there were snacks too at the end, but couldn't stop long as had to get to work for 10.30, so quick shower at dads then off to cope with"Panic Saturday " in the shop at work! Still, had tea, mincepies and choc so it wasn't a bad day overall! :)

  • Thanks! hope you are well? good to hear you had xmas parkrun too! Just found this quote on our Parkrun news report.................!

    "This weekend’s run was our last before Christmas, and it was our latest fancy dress run. I spotted one Christmas present, several penguins, lots of elves and a chimney full of Father Christmas-es, but the most disturbing sight was the fairy. If I found that on top of my tree, I would leave home!"

    he did look really funny! what a good sport that guy is! :)
