So Christmas Eve is finally here and Santa will soon be riding his sleigh through the sky and slipping down chimneys. However a few weeks ago he was found running the streets of Las Vegas. No he wasn’t shopping for the latest jewelry, he was about to run 5k. Just a little taper run before his big night, tonight.
Thanks Brian for commenting and letting us know about this Santa race. Be sure to check out his post about the his race in Vegas or read his blog about Studies in Clydeology.
In the new year we’d really like to feature more of our readers here so don’t be shy leave us a comment letting us know about the event and where to find your photos. That’s how I found out about Brian and his Santa Race.
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.
