Looks like Santa is RUNNING to town this year!  Imagine hundreds of Santa’s walking and running through downtown Waxahachie and the beautiful Ellis County Courthouse.  On Saturday, December 14, 2013, that visual will become a reality with the inaugural YMCA Santa Run 5k presented by HEB and Baylor Medical Center of Waxahachie.

This fun, family event will feature participants running or walking in full Santa costumes in either the Santa Run 5k or Elf fun run 1 mile format.

Live Christmas music, Milk and Cookies, Kids activities and plenty of smiles will be in abundance for the event that will surely become an annual tradition.

The run is set to begin at 10am but there will also be lots of free activities for whatever size kid you are. Pre and post-race activities will be available for all, bounce houses, letters to Santa, Mrs. Clause’s Zumbathon, photo opportunities and more. The run will be starting and finishing from the beautiful downtown square and incorporating the Train depot, the bike and run trail, Getzendaner Park and Jefferson Street.

Randy & I have already picked up our Santa suits for tomorrow and are so excited to participate in such a fun run in our own community. Thanks to everyone at the Waxahachie YMCA and all who have volunteered to make this such a successful event!

In other Fitness Friday news,  I have almost completed another 100 mile challenge but this time in just 2 WEEKS! Because of the icy days we had several of those miles had to be on a bike but this was a challenge for sure.  It was great to see what I was able to accomplish!
