We were a little worried about the weather for the Holiday Half this past weekend, but the pineapple express ended its reign Friday night, leaving puffy clouds and bright blue skies for Saturday and Sunday festivities.

Saturday was just one big party, with the 5K, adorable Penguin Waddle and Kool n’ Fit festival kicking things off. We loved seeing all the Santa hats, elf costumes, tutus and other holiday gear. Tis’ the season, after all!

The actual Holiday Half took place on Sunday, beginning and ending at Fairplex.  First place went to Raul Arcos, with an amazingly fast finish time of 1:10:15. Congratulations to all the participants! Running 13.1 miles is no easy feat.

That wraps up the last of our runs for 2014! From obstacle courses in the mud to neon lights, and foam bubbles to paint wars, our campus transformed time and time again for each unique fun run. We can’t wait to see what happens in 2015.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in the Holiday Half-Marathon and 5K! We look forward to seeing you here next year.
