The Starting Line
One of the goals I set for myself this summer was to learn how to change a flat on my bike.
Pretty basic stuff, but I’m not really much of a cyclist. My biking consists of doing the minimum amount of training I need each summer to get from zero to being able to finish the bike portion of a triathlon.
A new 5K run scheduled for late August is not your typical road race.
The runners will go over hurdles, climb hay bales, crawl through tunnels, negotiate a “sea of tires” and crawl through a mud pit.
The Car-X Crazy K also is not your average fundraiser. The goal is to raise $80,000, to be distributed among eight local charities.
This weekend is the first race in the new 5K Championship Circuit, so get up to Gifford if you want to participate in the race circuit. Here’s the list:
