Oh you beat me to finding their website. I am trying to talk myself in to doing the 5k. I will have to walk most of it but it is so close to my house it would be silly not to do it. LOL!!!

Oops, a little slow at responding, I ran the "Run for the Celts" 5k race.

Also, for those that are wanting to try something insane, I would check out the Ragnar Relay race for next year. The race just happened this past Friday and Saturday (22nd and 23rd). It's from LaCrosse, WI to Minneapolis, MN. Registration is now open for next year. To get somewhat of an idea about it, here is the website www.ragnarrelay.com and I actually blogged (my first blog--lol) about my experience.

Outstanding! And now, what we need to do is plan to get together for these and do them as a team! (Or a split team - I don't imagine the runners will want to be held up!)
