5Ks to Run With Us

There are two races coming up that we hope to see you at.  One's in Indy, and one's in WNC, so we've got you covered in either state.

Englewood Race for Roofs 5K, March 28 in Indianapolis

This is one of my favorite races for several reasons: 
  1. Proceeds go to a rental scholarship fund for people working toward more healthy and permanent housing. All people deserve a safe, affordable place to call home, so this is a cause well worth my support, and yours too I hope.
  2. This was the first race that I ran/walked in 2012.  Who could've guessed then that I would get hooked on running?
  3. Homemade cookies in the SWAG bags!  Seriously, local races are the best.  You don't have to drive far, your funds stay right in your city helping out your neighbors, and you get to appreciate streets and neighborhoods in a new way after you run through them.
  4. Bonus: I just found out this year's shirts are long-sleeved!
You can register for only $25 HERE.  You can also use that link to make a donation, if you can't make it to the race.  You can read my recap of previous years' races HERE.

This race is very special to Laura.  She runs here often, and it's where she first ran with Mark.  All proceeds from this event go towards the annual maintenance and improvement of the recreation areas at Lake Junaluska.   You can register for only $25  HERE
