For a Good Cause!

So I have decided to do something drastic.  And fun.  And more than a little dirty....

I am signing up to do the Kiss Me Dirty Race this August!  I am pretty excited about it.  The specs?

It's a 5k "race" for women and girls over the age of 10.  It is not a timed race, it is purely for fun.  Also, it is an obstacle course full of mud!  A small portion of the registration fee goes directly to gynecological cancer research through Huntsman Cancer Foundation.  Having one sister who was diagnosed and successfully treated for ovarian cancer, and having another sister who had a close call scare with ovarian cancer has made this race very personal for me.  Also, I have always wanted to get into running and figure this is a good way to ease in.  You are encouraged to wear costumes (awards will be given to the best three cocktail dresses, as well as the best three women's product costumes ie. tube of lipstick or mascara), but don't have to.  There will be tubes to crawl through, nets to crawl under, things to hurtle, mud bogs to wade through...  There is no award for speed, and no time chips will be handed out.  All in all, it's a fun time to be had by all!

The details, including a map of the course

I am pretty excited, and would love to extend this invitation to any of my female friends interested in joining me.   Also, I am raising funds to help the cause.  PLEASE go donate if you can! Any amount helps!
