The school wide 5k is tomorrow and it is a tad nerve wracking yet also exciting! All students in psychical education classes will be running the course with timer chips on to track their 5k times. Each student has been timing their mile long runs and 1.7k run times to set a goal time for this run. Teachers or any other students wanting to sign up to run may print a waiver off of the IHS website and participate as well. Personally my goal time is 24 minutes set for me by Mr.Bland and a lot of running has taken place to prepare. I love to run so it should be an okay time! If you love to run too I will be sharing some exciting 5k runs open to the public from Seattle Runs organization.
– Mud Factor! This 5k will be taking place August 10th 2014 in Seattle. Registration is $30 if you sign up before fathers day and includes a bandana, tattoo (temporary), medal, and bib with a name tag. The course goes through the mud and includes a cargo climb, halfway house, slip n slide, wall climb, a wire crawl and many other things!
-Run or Dye Seattle. The race is $23.50 to enter and takes place on Saturday, June 28 at 9 a.m. Run or Dye is making race running a little more colorful, one major city at a time. This 5k is separated into four courses of varying lengths, each designated by a separate color––which also is the color of the dye the participants get splashed with. At the end of the race, they’ll cross into the aptly-named Dye Zone—a poly chromatic free-for-all, where fluorescent color is thrown freely from all sides, allowing runners to splash their fellow runners or get colorful revenge on their friends, family members, or anyone walking by. The dye is Eco friendly and safe as well as washable.
