Oh the weather outside is frightful. Unless you find sunburns delightful. Since we are runners though: Santa go, Santa go, Santa go.
July is my favorite time of year to think about the joys of Christmas. Its before any of the stores have decorations or goods to tempt me, and far enough from the previous season that I have started to miss those Josh Groban carols. Apparently there are some lovely folks in Roseburg who have the same views that I do, but have taken it to an awesome higher level. While I am busting out my Stormtrooper Santa t-shirt, there are runners and walkers in Southern Oregon in Santa suits. #Winning
Zonta’s Christmas in July Santa Run has 5K and 10K options for participants (the 10K is runners only). The first 200 registrants will be able to use a Santa suits for their race. And race directors have wisely set up a suit modification station available to turn your suit into short sleeves and shorts. Parents can register children 10 and under for free with their paid entry. If you are a parent, please involve your child and please take their picture in a Santa suit and please please please share your picture on Run Oregon afterward.
