Oh man, have a found my niche in the world of exercise. Now, running a 5k is worth the hard work I hear, but how about running for food or drink even? Hell yes, sign me up. There are two marathons going down in my neck of the woods that are right up Edgyplate’s alley.
The first is the Froyo run. This is a 5k or 10k run in LA or maybe in your area as well. Get this; they give you Froyo at the end. They also have costume contest, gummy bear toss contests, and tons of awards at the finish line. I also like that you can bring the kiddos of all ages to run as well, including strollers. There are various paces you can put yourself in, from very fast to walkers. Honestly, how fun would this be to do with the entire family? What would you dress u as? Check it out…
The second, my personal fav, is the Beerfit Running Series. Beer and running, how is that ever going to work you say? This is how…Beerfit explains, “The Brew Mile: This is our take on the beer mile. The concept is simple – a 12 oz. beer every 1/4 mile for 1 full mile. Sound easy? It’s not. The race starts as you finish the infamous Brew Mile toast and sip that first beer. It ends 4 beers later with a heart-pounding sprint to beat time thresholds that raise more money for Water.org. Think you’ve got the chops to handle a chip-timed beer mile? We’ll be waiting at the finish for with an epic after party. Sign up now to prove it…The 5K Classic: For those who want to earn their beer before consuming it — The BeerFit 5k Classic is the only chip timed 5k race that finishes with an open bar after-party. Grab some friends, get a sweat in, and enjoy some ice cold beer at the finish line!” Not only that, but it is for a great cause, Beerfit supports Water.org which provides clean drinking water to a billion people throughout the world.
Now, get off your booty and run, run!
