Dear Santa…

Dear Santa,

In my last blog I suggested inviting a friend to go for a run for a holiday gift idea.  I truly believe this is one of the greatest gifts you could ever give, or receive.  Runs with others provide an opportunity to solve the world and personal life’s problems, to share stories, laughter, and memories that never get forgotten and offer inside jokes for years to come.  I always said I am glad that trees don’t have ears or mouths to share what they’ve heard.  Oh yes, and the health benefits too.

Oh no, I am deviating from my initial purpose of this letter.  What I wanted to tell you is that you might consider this invitation upon your arrival back at the North Pole after delivering presents all over the world and indulging in far too many cookies and glasses of milk.  Get some ever important sleep and then start your running regime.  I am sure you could recruit a few elves or Mrs. Claus to join you.

Another suggestion I have for you and all the runners in the world facing temperatures below 35 degrees- some Mizuno running gear to layer up.  In fact why don’t you just add a Mizuno Breath Thermo Stretch Crew shirt to every one of your runner’s wish list along with a Drylite thermo long sleeved ½ zip.  All the runners on your list will then be sure to be good boys and girls, all snug and warm as they get out the door and run.  Joy will be spread all over the world.  Smiles will freeze to us runners faces but our hearts will be warm.  I’ve been sporting mine for weeks and I want to share these good tidings with others.  Please consider.   They also fit nicely down the chimney.

Merry Christmas!

Christo Landry and Craig Curley Place 5th and 7th At USA 15K National Championships

Billed as the largest 15K (9.3 miles) in the United States (over 17,000 registered runners with 15,569 finishers), Mizuno Racing Team Members, Christo Landry and Craig Curley opened up their 2013 competitive road race campaigns with very solid efforts, as Christo placed 5th with a time of 43:46 (4:42 per mile) and Craig Curley was 7th in 44:04 (4:44 per mile). Christo, who was the 2012 USATF Road Circuit Co-Champion and runner-up at this race last year, was very pleased with his performance as his time was almost a minute faster than last year and he was only 8 seconds behind the winner. Craig Curley, who ran a personal best time, was only 18 seconds behind Christo.
