Women's Run

It's not too late to sign up for the Women's Run, but you better hurry! Race Day is August 29th at 11 AM. Choose between a 5 or 10 kilometer distance. Go here for details. The last I heard there were 229 women registered and the officials are hoping to exceed 300. All participants will receive $50.00 worth of Rocky Mountain product. All proceeds (after race costs are deducted) will be donated to a local charity. The schwag is good, the cause is excellent, and the medal is one of a kind! What are you waiting for... go run!
To paraphrase a local radio personality, this race isn't about excluding men, it's about including women. It's about bringing women of all levels of physical fitness together for a safe, inclusive, and morale building run. Spread the word to the daughters, sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts and friends in your lives! What the heck, send an invitation to batty old aunt Betty; she'll have blast!
Volunteers are needed. Go here for details. I'll be volunteering so be sure to give me a thumbs up as you gallop by.
It's a good day to be alive.

Hey Mike, I'm still alive. I got into the St. George Marathon this year which is in a week and a half so the Top of Utah got bumped to another year. I did go see some friends finish and it got me all excited and nervous for mine. Thanks for checking in on me. So, I have a question. I've been having issues with my calves. Did you have any issues before your popping injury? I'm just riding my bike all week to see if I can get them to get fixed before the marathon but I'm pretty nervous. What do you think?
