The Ugly Sweater 5k

You guys it’s all over… I’ve popped the cork on my bottle of Christmas cheer and I’m no longer able to contain it.

I blame this little 5k I participated in last weekend.  If there was any hope on me holding in my Christmas spirit until Thanksgiving I should not have participated… ohhhhh well. :)


We dressed to impress.


Isn’t my sister the cutest?!  You can barely tell she’s 7 months pregnant!


At the starting line I thought it was pretty funny to see 2500 fuzzy sweater hats lined up to go!


Mid race hot cocoa break!


We had so much fun… and if you couldn’t tell—I was pretty jazzed just to be there!


Post race celebratory cider for me and beer for the boys. (Don’t worry, my sister stuck to cocoa, of course.)

All in all it was such an exciting race—it was really fun to see all the clever tacky Christmas outfits people came up with!  The hot cocoa and Christmas music throughout were an added bonus. :)

I highly recommend the race if there’s one in your area… click here to find out!


What about you… in the Christmas spirit yet?! 
What’s the best themed race you’ve ever been a part of?

Psssst… Don’t forget to link-up tomorrow for 30 Days of Thankfulness!

(Not sure what this is?  See last week’s post here.)
