Ugly Christmas Sweater Run!!!!!

It's hard to believe that Christmas is almost upon us once again! Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I love celebrating it with all my friends and loved ones. This year, friend and training partner Melissa Marr and I have come up with a new way for our running buddies to come together and celebrate the holiday season by doing something we love: RUN!

SO, December 22nd, at 6:30pm, in Manitou Springs, CO, we are having a fun, informal, and totally free UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER FUN RUN!

Here are all the who, whats, and wheres:

WHO: you! and anyone else you think might want to join us.

WHERE: Memorial Park, Manitou Springs, CO

WHAT TIME: 6:30pm, Tuesday December 22nd

HOW FAR: about 3.5 miles

WHAT TO WEAR: That ugly Christmas sweater you swore you'd never be caught dead in! (be sure and wear something warm underneath!)A stupid Santa hat is highly recommended too.


DO I HAVE TO BE FAST? NO! In fact, I recommend you run slowly, so that everyone will see just how fashionable you look.

HOW WILL I KNOW WHERE TO RUN? We will have a map for you, although we are going to try and stick together. We will also briefly explain the course shortly before the run, and in a future posting on my blog.

CAN I BRING MY DOG OR CAT? Of course! Everybody knows how pets love to be dressed up in holiday apparel. Just be sure and have them on a leash.

IS THIS AN ORGANIZED RACE THAT I HAVE TO PAY TO GET IN? No! It is FREE, although some of us might go to Adam's Mountain Cafe for dinner afterwards.

I might make the ugly sweater run but mostly wanted to connect. Your blog was sent to me by a good running friend in Colorado Springs.
I ran Le Grizz in 2008. What an awesome race! Had to be one of the easiest I have ever done. You mentioned an 83 year old fella...wonder if it was the 82 year old fella I ran a couple of miles with the year before....he was just amazing.....we can only hope to be as amazing!
Take care and hope to see you at a race..
