On June 9th, I’m doing my second 10K. The first one was a success. This one is going to be hotter, and I’m going to the DC Improv the night before, so I should be all ready to run at 8 AM. Then we have our flag football end-of-season barbeque. Should be a good weekend. I may sleep all day Sunday, though.
I have to wonder how much this race actually helps the American Heart Association. It costs $30 to sign up. I get a t-shirt. They have to pay some people to run the event. I can’t believe that any more than $5 per person actually goes to help the cause.
On the other hand, I’m really running this race for me. If I want to help a charity, I’d rather just give them money.
