I love my rest days! The chance to sleep in, have a leisurely breakfast, pore over the Sunday papers (especially the pull outs), and just have a relaxing, do nothing day. Truth be told it doesn’t always go to plan but today was one of those days.
And after the wet, and cold weather we’ve had lately, the weather this weekend has been great. Cold, crisp sunny days with blue skies. Would be great for running…if I was running.
Which brings me to Santas and speedos and shuffling!
Not three words that would normally go together. I was reading the local paper yesterday when i came across an ad for an event which being held on Sunday 28 July to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Association of the ACT. It’s called the 6500 Santa Speedo Shuffle
The 6500 refers to the distance (in metres) from Glebe Park to the Kingston Hotel. The event starts at 11am. Registration is FREE, but all Santa’s (with the help of a Reindeer or Elf) must raise a minimum of $550 before the day. Santa’s must strip down to their budgie smugglers and run (in the Rudolf Pack) or jog/walk (in the Blitzen Pack) the 6500m from Glebe Park to Kingston. Given the temperatures in Canberra in July, this must surely qualify participants superhero status.
