Mama Says So Runs With Santa(s)

This is Mama Says So’s  favorite way to kick off the holiday season – the Santa 5K where everyone wears the Santa Suit that is issued in the race pack.  Nothing is jollier than running through the picture perfect snow fall with 1200 Santas.  My family has been doing this with 2 other families for 3 years now, and the event keeps getting bigger and funnier!

This year we ran next to a Santa who had strapped his ipod and two speakers on to his belt.  He played Christmas Carols all the way through the run!  There were multiple cases of mistaken identity since we were all dressed and bearded alike, and there was more than one running Santa who lost his pants as well.  The Santas ranged from seniors (some in wheel chairs) to young kids.  But the real treat was watching the faces of the families who just happened to be in the village or who live along the race route.  It was the an instant and non-commercial shot of holiday spirit.  There really is a Santa Clause.  This morning, in our village, there were over a thousand of them!
