My Santa suit has arrived!

My Santa suit has arrived ready for the fancy dress Coventry parkrun event on the 18th December.

I've tried it on and its a little on the big side (a lot on the big side actually) and very warm, so it might impede my running just a touch. The beard is particularly annoying. I could easily see myself choking on cotton wool by the end of the run. The trousers are a one size fits all kind of size. I am sure I could fit someone else in there with me if I had to. I am not certain, but to me felt does not seem quite as breathable as the running clothing I tend to wear each week!

I can't make the parkrun this weekend so the fancy dress run will be my next parkrun event and is highly likely to be my last of the year. I just hope that we get a good turn out that week and that most people (runners and volunteers) go to the trouble of dressing up. I am hoping to bring the kids along to watch and I am sure they would love to see 50 or 100 Santas (or more) running around the park. That would be some sight to see I think. I'm sure it will be a lot of fun.

I'm looking forward to it already!


  1. thats so great, sounds like it would be a blast, just checkin out your blog, i like the santa run, awsome

  2. Cheers Brent, I've never done a Santa run before, but it does sound like a lot of fun. For the first time I may actually need to treat a fun run as just that - a bit of fun!


I would love to hear what you think.
