Santa Run!!!

So to start with, 2km my arse!!  It was 3.5km all up!!lol (and yes that makes a difference!lol)  I know i can jog 2km, anything after that is just guessing!!

From the start it was interesting!  When something is one size fits all, you gotta know someones gunna luck out!!  That someone was Hubby!!  It was like someone ordered the baby Santa suit for him!!  After a few minor adjustments to the suit (abandoning the pants and removing the arms from the jacket) he was sorted!!  My suit fit, but the second i started to take wide strides the felt started to disintegrate!!  It was hilarious!!

Trying to stretch my skirt a wee bit so i could, oh you know....walk!

The run itself was good, until we followed the wrong people and carried the pushchair up 2 flights of steps......UP THE WRONG PATH!!!  Oh well though! We'll consider it an extra challenge in the run!

Still smiling after carrying the pushchair up the wrong path!

So we managed to run at least half, nearly took out a few people with the push chair (as you do!) and finished in 31mins (or something very close to that, cant remember what my Hubby said....probably wasn't listening!!) which i'm pretty stoked with, considering the time we spent going the wrong way!!  It was hard work, and the Santa jacket only stayed on for about 5mins but we had fun, and it was for an Awesome cause!! (Child Poverty)!!

Here's a mini photo dump, just cause pic's are great!!

Me and my happy little elf!
