These races always start at the butt-crack of dawn. I mean, it's an ungodly time that you have to get up and get going to be a part of these "fun"d raisers. If only they could start at noon. Then, I wouldn't look sooooo tired. But they are still loads of laughter and lots of fun.
Sunday my sister and I ran in Pints to Pasta. It's a 10k to help support a couple good causes. The proceeds go to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training AND The Boys and Girls Clubs.
Every community has these types of events and if you don't want to run or walk in the event, you can always volunteer. It's a lot of fun and it does a lot of good for your community.
Think about volunteering and making a difference.
