The Santa Pur-suit in Waterloo, Ont. is now in its sixth year and as with other Santa-themed races, this one promotes a fun, festive, and inclusive event –as long as you are prepared to wear the whole five-piece Santa suit for the entire race.

For me, this race is an annual tradition and this year I donned my Santa suit for the fourth year. On this week’s episode of the Shakeout Podcast, I share with you my bizarre holiday running tradition, which includes a fake beard, a love story, and hundred and hundreds of Santas.
