I turn back around the cones and start to increase my pace to 6:30-6:15min/mile. The knee feels okay and I'm pretty warmed up by now. The sun is shining on us and I can feel myself heat up under the Santa suit as there is very little breeze on this way back to the start.
To my left I can see a long stream of Santas approaching me from the other side. Such a spectacular display of red and white, sparkling in the sun. I see Tristan from the BOSH-Run Group and shout ‘Hey’.
He is followed shortly by James, then further on down I see Sunday with an almighty grin on his face under the white beard. Soon after I spot Michelle looking great, then Lucy and Chloe all smiles shouting 'BOSHER!' as I pass them.
