I had been wanting to do another fun run 5k, but all the timing had seemed to be off. I had found out about the Electric Run through a co-worker but it was the weekend of one of my best friends wedding. We just found out this week that Jrod has to work the WHOLE weekend, so I don’t have a driving partner anymore :( I am so sad, but can’t wait to see the pictures of the beautiful bride.
Now that we will be in town, we are going to be able to do the Electric Run 5k in Virginia Beach! It’s a double edge sword, I am super sad on one hand, but really excited for GLOWLIGHTS!!
Are you asking yourself, “Why do a Fun Run? Aren’t you training for a couple of Half Marathons?” Yes, I am, but the beauty of fun runs is that it motivates beginners along with giving seasoned runners a way to break up the monotony of their training. Plus.. it’s FUN!! *You can count me in the motivates beginners part.
The Electric Run 5K are proud to partner with The Tidewater Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. They are dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. Up to 75 percent of the Affiliate’s net income goes toward funding grants to local hospitals and community organizations that provide breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs for medically underserved women. The remaining net income (a minimum of 25 percent) supports the national Komen Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world.
