Flashback post: Santa Speedo Run 2012

SSRAm I looking for an excuse to share this video I created after the 2012 Santa Speedo Run here in Boston? Perhaps, but I still can’t believe this took place six months ago today.  Feel free to watch this light hearted and fun video of Bostonians running down the now infamous Boylston Street.

Thank you bloggahs

Santa Speedo RunI wanted to thank these bloggers and everyone else who shared the 2012 Boston Santa Speedo video I posted on YouTube earlier this week. I love this event and look forward to it each year.

Santa Speedo Run

Boston Santa Speedo RunThis past Saturday was Boston’s annual Santa Speedo Run. Despite the rain forecast and the steady drizzle Saturday morning, more than 700 men and women braved the elements and ran through Back Bay in little more than a speedo and sneakers.

Every year the Boston LGBT community shows up but this year’s run resembled a Pride event.  From the “pre-partying” at homes in Back Bay to the impromptu dance party on Boylston that broke out as runners congregated after the run – the city on Saturday afternoon had a Pride-esque feeling that warmed my heart even if I couldn’t quite feel my toes by the time I left the Back Bay.

Below is my annual video paying tribute to those who ran – enjoy.

Liked the video? Here is the 2011 video and 2010 video from the Boston Santa Speedo Run.

BosGuyOne week from today Boston will host the 13th annual Santa Speedo Run through the Back Bay; spectators, mark your calendars; runners take note of the forecast and pray for warm temperatures.

Earlier this month I post my video from the 2011 run, below is a video from the Santa Speedo Run from 2010.  Can’t make it to Boylston Street next Saturday? No worries, I’ll be there snapping photographs and chatting with runners to tell you all about it.

Sponsor Sergio for this year’s Santa Speedo Run

I am currently visiting Sergio’s family in hot and humid Brazil where speedos are common but the cold is a distant memory. While we are away, I wanted to give Sergio a plug since he is participating in the Santa Speedo Run next month and needs to do some fundraising.

A modest donation of $10 or $25 to help him raise money for this year’s charity, Play Ball Foundation, would be greatly appreciated by him.
