Photo by myself in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.
Thousands of runners ran the loop around Prospect Park, this morning, dressed in costume. Nearly 6,000 runners finished the race.
The 'Jingle Bell Jog' is a 6K run held every year by the New York Road Runners club. I happened to be in the park this morning with Rupert and had no idea the run was held today. But when I heard the distinctive jingling and loud whoops of joy, I knew we were in for a treat.
Rupert and I stood to the side while hundreds of runners dashed by us dressed in reindeer antlers, red noses, santa hats and santa tutus. Runners were given t-shirts and bells for the race.
There was even a guy wearing nothing but a santa hat and a red speedo! Eek! Fortunately for him, it wasn't too cold.
What seemed to be an endless stream of runners went by, as we waited on the curb to cross.
Above, one runner wore the tshirt for the run, along with his antlers.

Apologies for the sporadic posts once again. It's been crazy, crazy busy at work!
