After a little bit of a hiatus from running I'm starting to put some miles back on my sneakers. May 19th I'll be back at it officially for the Harpoon 5 miler and I've started to ponder the idea of perhaps doing a 5K once a weekend for area charities... let me ponder that a little more before I officially commit!
Now one of my friends from college (WESTFIELD STATE) has been posting tons about a run he's doing and it got my attention because I just recently discovered Castle Island (cut me some slack I'm still new) and it's my new fave spot to run. I'll be home in WMASS this Sunday and unable to make his run, but if you're looking to do a beautiful 5K for a great cause here's the scoop ...
Wings for Life World Run goes down all over the world at the same time. For our time zone that is 7AM on Sunday morning. My pal Trott (college friends go by last names) will be running Sunday at Castle Island with about 60 other runners. Download the Wings For Life App to participate.
Afterwards runners are welcome to meet up in Southie for the After Party at Fat Baby Sushi to celebrate with Cinco De Mayo fare (my fave!!!)
The goal of Wings For Life is to find a cure for spinal cord injury. You can get all the info about the run and the cause right here!
And while I dabble with my weekend 5K thoughts... if you have a 5K for a great charity you think I should run... HOLLAH! DM me on Insta @amandajoDJ
