Race Recap: Somerville Jingle Bell Run

23 Dec

Shortly before heading home for the holidays, I joined a few friends and about 7,000 other festive runners for the 6th Annual Somerville Jingle Bell Run on December 16th.

The majority of participants were dressed up as santas, elves, reindeer, snowmen, or, at the very least, wore red and green colored running gear. Santa himself was even there with his eight reindeer and sleigh! (They were even followed up by the abominable snowman–thankfully, it was only a 5K so that poor runner was only stuck in that costume for a few miles).

At the conclusion of the race, we were awarded our beer bottle opener race medals and headed off to enjoy the post-race party. While many of the local bars/restaurants are open for the event, we settled at Redbones and enjoyed a complimentary pulled pork sandwich and Harpoon IPA. Fun run and delicious post-race provisions. This just may become an annual tradition. What fun run shall I do next? There’s always the Santa Speedo run in Boston… no thanks, I think I’ll pass. Brrr!
