Make Santa Pur-suit your “My Next KW Race”

This year is flying by! With Christmas less than two months away I know many people have already started their Christmas shopping. (Some have even finished it!)

I like to do more of a “sprint finish” when it comes to buying Christmas gifts. You’ll often find me in the stores on December 24.

For me, this is an exciting year. This year will be the first year where we will have a child that is asking about Santa and wanting to write a Christmas list.

What is on your wish list this year?

· A goal race or a race goal?
· New running clothes?
· More time to run in 2019?
· Or something not running related at all?

I imagine she is going to be very excited when she sees 400 Santas running down the street prior to the Kitchener Santa Claus parade. Do you want to be one of those Santas? If so, this contest is for you!

    • Michael Hewitson November 8, 2018 11:22 am

      Thanks Melissa! I have had to deal with that as well in the past. It feels like it takes forever to get better. I hope it improves quickly for you!

    • Michael Hewitson November 12, 2018 3:54 pm

      Amazing Mike! Training for spring marathons can be challenging but rewarding as well! Wishing you all the best in your training.

  • Christian Berndt November 10, 2018 11:18 pm

    Christmas came early as my wish was answered today at the temperance run when myn10 year old son beat me by 2 seconds at his first road race. Proud father. Great race.

    • Christian Berndt November 10, 2018 11:20 pm

      Ung please read temperance as remembrance. Lol I was celebrating with a drink.

      • Michael Hewitson November 12, 2018 3:57 pm

        Haha we figured you meant rememberance 🙂 hope your celebratory drink was delicious! It was well deserved after running in that cold wind!

    • Michael Hewitson November 12, 2018 3:56 pm

      Thanks Christian! So awesome that your kids are following in your footsteps and getting active! He’ll likely only get faster!
