I am fan of running for something. Which is why I am telling one and all about this great race I came across! A friend I made on dailymile is hosting a virtual 5k to raise funds for autism. That's right, you don't need to meet anywhere at 7am or decide what running outfit you want everyone to see you in. It's virtual, so you can do it anywhere, anytime, by yourself, with friends, take your dog, push a stroller, whatever. Just do it by June 10th. Go here for more details and how to sign up. (It's only 5 bucks. Seriously. What more reason do you need?)
PS - there are prizes! As if the warm fuzzy of running for a good cause wasn't enough.
PPS - a 5k is only 3.1 miles and you don't even have to run. Walkers are always welcome in any race! (Except maybe, like, the 100 yard dash at the Olympics. That's probably runners only.)
PPPS - the dailymile is my new favorite place to log my runs. Lots and lots of friendly cheerleaders to keep you going. I strongly recommend it.
PPPPS - how many post scripts are you allowed in one piece of correspondence?
The end. Let me know if you race!
