    Santa came to town and we hustled through the parking lot, the canal and street ways to catch up with him! The production was on point. The holiday festivities were in the air. Holiday music blasting in the background. Packet pick up was smooth. You get your bib and head to another tent to pick up your swag. The Startline and Finish were at the same location. There was plenty of parking since it’s at the mall. I like the fact that some of the streets were closed off. But I dare say that running through the parking lot for the first 1/2 mile did not sit well with me. It’s a road race. As a runner, I feel cheated when I have to cut through a parking lot because scenery is crucial to keep the runner’s mind engaged. Also, cookies were being handed out less than a quarter-mile after the start. Wait a minute…I’m just not quite ready to munch on cookies when my breathing is not even steady yet. The route is not the most scenic. We ran the canal twice. First, we pushed our way to mile 9 and then we run it back to the finish line. Oh, expect hills, hills, hills! There’s a couple each way. They don’t look intimidating but you feel them. The finish line threw me off because I did not see the medal handlers ahead. So, for a quick second, I felt like I was going the wrong way.
    Your medal is handed to you after you crossed the finish line and walk around to the outside of the course. Overall, it’s a good race packed with holiday spirit-filled runners. It’s worth it to run it at least one time. So, go do the hustle!

    One of several races across the nation in select major cities; with a Christmas theme. Enjoy a hot chocolate before or after your run. I’ve run two races in this series and both started/ended near a major sports complex/stadium.
