How was your Christmas running?


Ending an advent or a mince pie streak? Christmas day parkruns or Boxing day recoveries? As always, share your highs and lows below the line

Why did Santa start running when it got icy?
Freeze a jolly good fellow

I was watching the London marathon and saw one runner dressed as a chicken and another runner dressed as an egg … I thought, “This could be interesting..”

Ok, that’s all I got. Any other terrible Christmas/ running jokes below the line please. I hope everyone had a fabulous festive period of gluttony alternating with running. My own consisted of a long run on Christmas Eve, a lap of Richmond Park on Christmas Day and a ramble with my club on Boxing Day, which also bought up 3,000 miles for the year. At which point I got home and fell into bed, feeling like I’d run 3,000 miles that day. It was the entertaining that did for me, not the running, right?

So, please post your jokes, festive runs and stories below the line as always. Merry Christmas!
