How on earth does Santa do it in that suit?

On Sunday I took part in the Variety Club’s Santa Fun Run at Darling Harbour in Sydney.  For the initiated  the Santa Fun Run is a 5km run through the city whilst wearing a five piece Santa suit.  Yes the suit is a cotton blend and the pants are shorts, but it still consists of jacket, hat, belt, beard and pants.  And as the suit is a cheap material, it is necessary to wear running shorts and T-shirt to prevent chafing in most unpleasant places.

For all that, it is a really fun event.  There is a really spirit of camaraderie as over 2000 other Santas and I joined forces to raise money for this great cause, and for me Variety has a special place in my heart.  I teach disabled children and Variety really does do heaps to help our kids.

After a cooler day on Saturday, Sydney decided to turn on a 29 degree day on Sunday.  Despite the fact that a 5km distance is nothing out of the ordinary for me, I complete that distance several times a week in my regular exercise, doing it in full Santa regalia is a different kettle of fish altogether.  I have no idea what kind of cardio he does to prepare for his big event, but it must be something out of the box. Come to think of it, he doesn’t do the hard yakka does he, it’s Rudolph and co.  Maybe next year I’ll dress as a reindeer…..
