Cold running

The 4th annual Santa Shuffle was run on Saturday. I dropped by to see if there were any interesting outfits. One runner who caught my attention was the runner without a shirt. It was not as cold Saturday morning as it was on Thursday and Friday mornings, but it was still below freezing. This runner, by the way, won the race. Maybe the cold motivated him to run really fast.

Behind the runners were the walkers. Notice that they are all dressed for the cold.
 
Another interesting outfit was the fellow running in a kilt. He may have had cold legs as he crossed the finish line, but he protected the top part of his body pretty well.
 
Last year the lady below ran. I did not see anything this year that equaled her outfit.
 
Unfortunately this race does not have a history of ever posting results, so we will probably never know who won.

Don't you just love those legs of that last photo. How Christmasy is that.
