As many of you know, my goal this summer is to run a 5k each month. My husband and I started in May with the Fargo 5K and then did the Osakis 5K in June and will do a 5K in Henning in July. In September, we are doing one in Alexandria. We planned on doing the 5K race in Hoffman in August, but I just found out it is the weekend I am going to be in Wisconsin having a mom and sisters weekend. Dang it.
So, I am now in search of a 5K race for August. I would love to find one within a 40 to 50-mile radius of Alexandria either the first weekend of August – the 6th, 7th or 8th – or the last weekend in August – the 27th, 28th or 29th. The third weekend of August is the Douglas County Fair and both my husband will be attending the fair; taking pictures for the newspaper and working in the Echo Press booth.
We could maybe do a race that weekend as long as it was earlier morning on Saturday or Sunday, but it would have to be real close to Alexandria.
So, if any of you who read this column know of a 5K race in the vicinity, please let me know. If you have a website I could check out, that would be great. I have been on the active.com website, along with pickleevents.com and haven’t really found anything. Although I wasn’t looking real hard.
You can either post a comment here with information or please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. That is confessions of a former fat girl at gmail dot com.
Thanks so much!
