At the Jingle Bell Run in Somerville, MA (December 22, 2013)
Rare photo of Santa Claus preparing for the physical challenge of
climbing up and down millions of chimneys on Christmas Eve.
I took this photo at the Jingle Bell Run, a 5K road race
in Somerville, MA held a few days before Christmas.
Santa and these other runners were just behind me.
Santa was sprinting at a very respectable 7-minute pace.
(Yes, I was running,. Didn't stop or slow my pace.
After all--I was in a race.)
I wanted to speak with him after the race, but he was gone.
All he left behind were some tracks in the snow from a big sled...
and from way up above me, I heard a booming Ho, Ho, Ho!
