As part of my commitment to participating in Exercise your Rights, I am going to run a 5K (3.1 miles) between July 4 – 14. I’ve been dilly-dallying in picking a race because I may be in Seattle during that time period. But, alas, I cannot keep putting this off — I will run the July 4th Sunset 5K in Cherokee, NC. If for some reason I end up in Seattle, I’ve already picked the Torchlight 5K (night of July 3/4 at midnight).
I’m looking forward to running in Cherokee. It’s sacred land and the time is sensible — unlike all the other 8am start times, this 5K starts at 7:45pm. Perhaps there will be fireworks after?
This means I will begin fundraising to meet my $1,000 goal. Knowing that I’m committed to this goal and to continue running to do a half marathon in Fall REALLY motivates me to get out and run. Thank you!
