The same group that did my Midnight run back in the summer does a Santa Run!
The past few years they have done one in Provo and Ogden but announced they would be doing a Taylorsville/West Valley one for the first time this year. When I got the e-mail about it Justin and I both thought it sounded so fun! When it came time to register though we realized it was the day after Thanksgiving and knew most people would be out shopping or out of town with family so we decided to have just one of us do it so we wouldn't have to worry about finding a sitter for the kids. Because I was able to do the Midnight run I thought it was only fair Justin got to do the Santa Run!
It was his very first race and he survived it and loved it!
Here are the awesome pics I was able to get!

The boys and I were running a little late and were pulling up to find parking just as the race started. It was so cool to see all those Santas running down the street!
|Look at all the Santa's coming down the road|
|Just in time to see Justin!|
Once we found parking and got out to wait for Justin to come by there was a guy with a wagon going up and down the road giving out free cocoa to the spectators. We also had some caramel popcorn in the car from Justin's Grandma that we hadn't pulled out from our trip yet. So we had a nice snack and some warm cocoa while we watched all the Santa's go by :)
|YAY! Go Justin!|
|Have you ever seen so many Santa's in one place?? :)|
|There is our Santa!|
|YAY all done!|
