  1. My husband and I were just looking for an area 5k to run this weekend. I wish we were close enough to go and run this but that is QUITE a drive :)

  2. I have never run one of these ‘specialty’ events before, but I love how they get people out there, having fun and getting moving. Some people put them down, but anything getting bodies in motion is GREAT IMO.

  3. This is just a regular old 5K :)

  4. Ah, I misread it as a ‘fun run’ crime themed thing … oh well, in our area the involvement of local organizations brings out folks who might not really even ‘run’ just to support the effort. Whatever works, eh?

  5. Are you running it? My husband is running this one, and I’m watching the kids. I’m doing South Lakes in a few weeks. :) A good friend of ours is on the Crime Solvers board, and, of course happy to support CAR!!

  6. I love 5k runs. I started at 3k and then did a few 5k’s already. Hope there are plenty more of this activity. I’m trying to pursue the 15k soon. :)
