The inaugural Cupid’s Undie Run!

Announcing the inaugural Cupid’s Undie Run, a 2-mile run in your skivvies around the heart of our nation’s capital (the Capitol Building to be exact)!  With all proceeds going to the Children’s Tumor Foundation, a $30 registration fee will get you a nifty looking t-shirt, drink specials, food, raffles and giveaways.  Partaking in the libations pre-run is encouraged 1) so everyone has a good time, 2) to warm you up before braving the cold temps, and 3) to give you more courage to strip down to those undies!

I wouldn’t call myself an expert, per-se, at underwear runs, but having run the Kona Underpants Run back in October, I can say that they are a TON of fun.  Seriously, running in your underwear sounds embarrassing, but the excitement of doing something ludicrous with a bunch of other crazies makes it all worth the while.  I highly recommend that everyone attend and spread the word.

Running in my underoos!

I’ll be running the Holiday Lake 50k that same morning, and with Holiday Lake being 3.5 hours away there is unfortunately no way for me to do both.  I will, however, run as fast as reasonably possible at Holiday Lake (don’t want to get hurt again this year!) and then do the same with my driving.  If my timing is correct, I should be arriving about an hour after the run, but that should give me plenty of time to partake in the post-run festivities for the rest of the afternoon/evening.  Hope to see you all there, and don’t forget to register beforehand!

(I know, this isn’t my usual type of post, but the event is being organized by some of my close friends, it’s for a great cause and let’s be honest, it’s going to be a ton of fun.  Also, I was called out earlier today for slacking on my blogging, so take THAT unnamed complainer!)
