Tall Mom the Elf

Here is a little preview of the FUN I had at the Santa Runs Tacoma 5k today.. Race report and a BUNCH of photos soon.. I will upload some on my facebook page in a few hours if you are interested..

Today I was thinking about some....

Tall Mom FUN RUN rules:

1. Makeup and/or sparkles are accepted and encouraged

2. Crazy socks will make you faster

3. Side braids and snowflake earrings do not mix

4. Homemade costumes are great, but REMEMBER you have to run 3.1++ miles so make sure it is comfortable.

5. Plan to meet friends and have a photographer because Fun Runs make for fun photo-ops

I love the costume. I ran a race recently with friends dressed as reindeer; I went as Cupid. I have pictures up on the blog of it.

I certainly encourage fun outfits for fun runs! Look forward to the race synopsis.

Cute outfit! I keep missing our Santa run because of my son's singing schedule; every year, concert and race fall on the same day. I'm looking forward to running just for fun.
