Santa Hustle 5k and Half Marathon
If you know me even a little, you know what a jock I am. I've been a runner since I was 13 years old. So you must appreciate how excited I am to be combining my two great loves--Christmas and running--in one activity, by participating in the Santa Hustle.
The Santa Hustle is a holiday-spirited race for 5k runners (that's 3.1 miles) or for half marathoners (13.1 miles). This December, there are races being held in seven cities: Chicago, Sevierville TN, Indianapolis, Cedar Point (in Sandusky OH), Dayton Beach, Milwaukee, and Galveston. Please check the website SantaHustle.com for dates and details.
Making this family-friendly event even more fun is that each participant receives a Santa hat, beard, and customized shirt to wear. That means each event will have thousands of Santas running the course, creating a Christmas spectacle. It's all about having fun and I can't wait!
I am going to be at the Cedar Point race in Sandusky, Ohio on Sunday, December 16th. Not only am I running the 5k course but I'm going to be at the Post-Race Party meeting people, and asking everyone about their favorite Christmas TV specials. Even if you're not a runner, come and cheer on the runners--and bring your camera! I'd love to hear about your favorite TV special or Christmas movie as well. I'll also be selling copies of my books and I'll be glad to sign one for you--or as a gift for someone else.
If you're a runner, register for the race today. I'll see everyone at the Cedar Point race on December 16th. Check out these other links:
