5K Forecast: Lookin' Good for Saturday

September 10, 2008

The weather forcast for Saturday is perfect running weather -- High of 81, low of 71.

If you haven't registered to participate in the Club's 5K Run/Walk, now is the time to sign up. Your $30 will get you a long-sleeve T shirt, a sit-down pancake and egg breakfast, the chance to win prizes if you or your team are fast or large (we're talking numbers, my friends, not what the scale says!), and the chance to win random prizes.

This bears repeating: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RUN! Walkers are, of course, welcome.

If you wake up Saturday and decide to join us, it'll cost you an extra $5. (Race-day registration is $35.) But it's definitely worth the price.
The race starts at 9 a.m.

In addition to the race, breakfast and prizes, you'll also have a chance to bid on silent auction items. Rumor has it Barack Obama and John McCain are up for bid. (President Sylvia Smith says: This is no rumor. However, in full disclosure, I must tell you that Obama and McCain are lifesize cardboards.)

So please join us in this annual party, er, demonstration of physical fitness. Proceeds go to the Club's scholarship fund.
