Jingle all the Way in Somerville, Massachusetts

Missy on the Right

Ugly Sweater Run 5K, Boston, Massachusetts

Ugly Sweater Run 5K, Boston, Massachusetts

10,000 showy sweaters made their way through the streets of Somerville, Massachusetts this past weekend.

It was Boston’s first 5K “Ugly Sweater” run and only if you were naughty would you otherwise be forced to wear this much kitsch.

Mutti and me along with my local chums took to the streets with revelers decked out in colorful cardigans, tacky reindeer antlers, knit hats with bells jingling and candy cane stockings.

Our overzealous friend Missy should have taken first place for her ostentatious garb. It was nearly as original as what she wore during our Halloween pub crawl when she dressed up as the “Cat In A Shark Costume Chasing A Duck While Riding A Roomba” from the viral YouTube video.

That’s Missy in the first photo on the top right of this blog entry.

If you’d like to do the same, Ballston Spa is having their 2nd Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater 5K Run this Saturday, December 7th starting at the Milton Community Center. To register: https://register.bazumedia.com/reg/form?eventID=5400
