    What a run race! I love the guy with the tree costume … but that had to have been difficult to run in!

    Looks like a fun race! We are running a “Jingle Run” next weekend. Im looking forward to it. I might need to score some rad socks first though.

    Congrats on placing! Looks like a fun run but I would be soo afraid of tripping in the dark. Hopefully they can figure out a better lighting plan next year πŸ™‚

    I ran a Hanukkah hustle 5km (and the medals were menorahs!) and a Santa shuffle 5k. My fiancΓ© is Jewish, so we tried to split the races equally for the holidays. We didn’t dress up for either, but there is a Santa run somewhere around here where the race kit actually has a Santa costume in it! So maybe next year, haha πŸ™‚

    i love your festive socks! i like those holiday-themed pro compression socks (if you have seen them) but i understand they are sold out…bargain store make-my-own may have to be a substitute!
    love the finish line lights at the race – and congrats to mary!

      Not consistently. He’ll bust out a couple of miles every once in a while.

    Hey Meghann,

    Looks like a fun race! Glad you had a good time!

    I had a quick question for you- what has been your experience with marathons and headphone bans? I am this close to signing up for my first marathon in the spring and have noticed that some races ban headphones…the race I really want to do (Charlottesville) has the policy on its website. Have you ever run a marathon with this rule? I love listening to music when I run and don’t want to do my first full without it!

    Thanks!!

      That’s such a tricky question. THe majority of marathons state that they ban headphones as a safety precaution, but I would say the majority of the marathon field never listens to the ban. They’re not going to kick you off the course for wearing headphones, but you also wouldn’t qualify for any awards if you did. I’ve worn headphones for all of my marathons (even ones where they were banned) and never had a problem.

    The only way I’d place in a race is if there were only three people running in it πŸ˜‰

    I ran the Reindeer Run at Sea World yesterday. So fun! We wore a red shirt, a red/green/white tutu that we made, Christmas socks that had the puffy thing like yours at the top but that were green/red plaid, jingle bells in our shoes and hair, candy cane Sweaty Band, and reindeer antler headband. I love dressing up!
