Featured Web Site: Santa Speedo Run

Santa Speedo RunLooking for something interesting to do (or watch) in Boston this weekend? Well, Saturday, December 16, is the day of the Santa Speedo Run. Now this may not be the biggest run but heh, since Christmas is just around the corner I thought maybe it just might be worth checking out.

It started out as a run with the guys to spread some cheer and have fun. Now it’s an annual event that raises funds towards a charity. This year, 100 percent of the funds raised by the Santa Speedo Run will be donated to The Ellie Fund, a local non-profit dedicated to fighting breast cancer and easing its effects on women and families across Massachusetts.

Of course my favorite part of the site is the photo section. By the way both men and women do participate in the event but it does appear to be a male-dominated event.

Viewing the videos is very entertaining. I love how some of the participants talk about what their training consisted of. “Carbo-loading with beer and occasionally running home”.

Gotta a Web site you would like featured? Please leave me a comment with the details.

About Dawn - Pink Chick

For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep. Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003. Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon. Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.
