Number 74: Run down Candy Cane Lane


I love doing holiday things and lucky for me St. Louis provides lots of opportunity to do holiday things! One of these is a visit to Candy Cane Lane. A street in south city that decorates pretty elaborately for Christmas. What started out as something just for fun has turned into a tradition for many St. Louis families. Plus over the last few years the homeowners have collected donations for local charities  from cars that drive down the street. I love this! Holiday fun and helping others. Our local running store hosts a group run every Monday night and during the holidays you run down Candy Cane Lane. This was a must on my list!!

It was cold night but the lights were shining and you could hear the Christmas carols from inside the cars driving down the street. I will definitely be back back next year in my running shoes!

Did I mention it’s near Ted Drewes as well! Ice cream and Christmas- does it get any better!
