wedding. what immediately comes to mind? love, flowers, cute little kids toddling down the isle scattering bits of vivisected flora? no, of course not – you think that there is no way that you are going to be able to burn off all the calories from the 7 or 8 slices of wedding cake that you will inevitably eat. and so close to the new year too! there goes that resolution.
well this wedding has a solution to that particular little problem. the morning of the wedding, rain or shine (well, maybe just shine), we are going to embark on a magical running extravaganza that is close enough to 5 kilometers. you know, like when you set out to do a 15 miler and your GPS watch says 14.72, and someone asks you how far you ran – you tell them you did 15. cause it’s close enough. true, our little race will not be usatf certified, but it should be fun. and there will be prizes to be awarded at the wedding. if you don’t happen to be invited to the wedding (then really, why are you wasting your time on this blog?), then you are still more than welcome to come and race, but try not to win, cause, well, that would just be awkward when we awarded the prize. i guess we could mail it to you or something.
anyway, here is the info:
