Ugly Sweater Run

Last month, we asked ourselves, “What better way to get ready for an old-fashioned Christmas than running a 5k with 1,000 other Atlantans all wearing ugly sweaters?”

We loved this cheesy/merry race. The giant inflatable Santa, Christmas tunes, and free Odwalla smoothies put us in the hap-hap-happiest of moods!

I represented with a Hannukah sweater (they never specified it had to be a ugly Christmas sweater!), while Scott rocked that hat & a Star Wars sweater, and Carol Anne sported a “meowy Christmas” look complete with light-up green tutu.

2/3rds of the way through the run we happened upon the Piedmont Park beehives. Naturally, we had to stop to say hi to the ladies!

Our finisher’s medals are shaped like ugly holiday sweaters.

Another race down! That makes 3 months in a row (including this race, and this one). Wonder how long will we keep this going? You’ll have to keep checking back to find out!
