Your first 5K, pancakes and pie
I know someone who is running her first 5K this morning. I'm running too. The best part of running today is running for a cause - the YWCA's Race Against Racism. According to the YWCA Facebook page, there are almost 400 runners running against racism. Oh, a bonus is a pancake breakfast after the run!
If pancakes and running aren't your 'thing' the Morning Rotary Club is holding their annual Pie Ride starting at Lions Beach this morning. They offer a 100K, 50K and 30K ride. After you cross the finish line you get a pie! Proceeds go to various Rotary Club sponsored events throughout the community.
Both events start at 8 this morning so if you aren't signed up you better get going! To those who say there's nothing to do in Janesville I say - Hogwash! Speaking of, the annual Tub Run starts later today from Kutter. Yes, another charitable and fun event in Janesville.
Note to self - heels are not needed for this 5K. Those are left for the 'Walk a Mile in Her Shoes' fundraiser.
Enjoy your weekend!
