Activity du jour: Jingle Bell Jog in Brooklyn!
The only thing better than the sound of jingle bells, is the sound of thousands of them on a quiet, foggy Saturday morning rising up from the middle of Prospect Park.
I just knew it was going to be an awesome day when I hopped in a cab and my driver laughed and said, "This is fun...where to, Miss Santa?" Then he told me he had no idea where to drop me off, but that once we got to the park I could probably follow the other santas in costume. "There will be thousands", he said.
Running a race is amazing in and of its self...but add in jingle bells, crazy costumes, and red & green bagels and you've got a perfect recipe for thousands of stupidly happy people. I haven't even mentioned the hot chocolate and Christmas music.
Would I run the race again?? Der... you don't even have to ask. All you need to wonder about is my costume for next year:)
PS~ Did I mention I was offered a job a mile into the race?
