Micro-Mini Marathon Update

Just got off the phone with O'Shea's....everything is set for the Micro Mini Marathon...Byahh!

The race will start on April 25 at 11:30 a.m. from the Bowman field parking lot (on the corner of Pee Wee Reese Blvd and Taylorsville Road) and continue up the hill through on Pee Wee Reese through part of Seneca Park...and back.

All of the money from the entry fees, as well as any other donations that are offered, will be given to Day Spring. Day Spring is a local non profit organization that provides residential housing and support services for adults with mental retardation. More info on Day Spring can be found on their website at www.dayspringky.org.

Also, after the race O'Shea's has reserved their very awesome back patio for all the participants from 12:30 - 4. Sadly, no free food or drink will be offered...but they usually charge a pretty penny to reserve their party space and their giving it to us for free...so we can't complain at all. Plus, if things go well this year...we may be able to plan better for the 2nd annual Micro-Mini Marathon.

The participant list is growing and there is still plenty of time to sign up. If you want to join in the fun please contact me at brianusellis@gmail.com. Also, if you can't participate but you want to donate to Day Spring, contact me at the same e-mail.

Alright guys, what once seemed like a funny little dream is now turning into a pretty bad ass reality. If you haven't signed up and you don't have any conflicts on the 25th I would urge you to please come out and join us for a day of exercise and partying...all for a very deserving charity.

Have a good Monday everyone.
