Bloody Elf

Garscube's annual Santa race today. It's a just-for-fun 5K (ish) course through Bearsden. Well, it's a lighthearted event for most people. I had to talk Marco out of wearing his racing shoes, only to get there to see a few other members in theirs.

The race was hilarious. Running down the switchback to the sound of honking horns and cheering pedestrians. Took the focus off my red wine hangover and aching legs. Finished in 24.55...without spewing.

It's the club's Christmas party tonight, so we booked a hotel for the night. I don't know what was funnier, going round Asda for the post-race munchies or checking in to the hotel. Dressed as Santa and an elf definitely raised a few eyebrows. It could be the new festive fetish.
