Mercs invade Seattle Jingle Bell 5k run/walk
« on: Dec 13, 2009, 09:36 PM »

The NWC Ver'alor, Bes'kad Prudii conducted a one man invasion of the Seattle Jingle Bell 5k run/walk to benefit the Arthritis Foundation on Sunday, Dec. 13th 2009.  Every year people dress up in festive costumes and regular street clothes to run or walk the five kilometers.  This year, the Mercs took to the streets, much to the delight of the entire 12,000 person crowd.

Although it was a timed run/walk.  I was stopped far to often to pose for pictures to have my time be taken serious!  The important thing was that the Jingle Bell run raised a little more than $500,000 in total.

As strange as it was to see a Merc walking the streets of Seattle, the public transit system acted like it was just a normal Sunday morning in Seattle.

Since it was a one man invasion, not much for pictures.  I am waiting to find more on various media outlets and flickr since I was filmed and photographed ALOT.  Here is the only other picture I have, post run (and looking a mess since I just finished!):
