CFA Race Series

Running friends, I have some exciting news. The Mister's Chick Fil A is hosting a race!!!! (Loud cheers, screams, jumping for joy!!!).

And I would've told you about it sooner, but I was in mourning that I couldn't run it due to Parr A & Parr B keeping me off the road and near el toilet. SO.... I'm sorry for being selfish, but now that I can tell you why I won't be running it - I feel the freedom to advertise it!! ;) It's really going to be a great race!

Here are the facts (all of them retrieved from the race website):

Yall, one thing that I LOVE about Chick Fil A is that they are continually giving back to the community.  This race benefits The Cure Starts Now and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation in honor of Ella Newmiller - a sweet girl in our community who recently lost her battle with this disease. Over the past few years, our CFA community has supported this family and raised thousands of dollars for this cause and I'm thrilled to play even a small part & hope you will too! You can read more of Ella's story here.

For folks with kids, there will be a family fun zone at the end of the race with lots of family activities! So you can wait there while you cheer on your spouse, friends, or other family members. And yours truly will be serving Sal's SnoCones with my favorite Mil in the Family Fun Zone! So when you're done running you can come get a snocone and see the Parrs (hopefully I won't be bulging too much then!).

All that to say - whether you're a new runner or an experienced one - we have a race for everyone! (i didn't mean to rhyme... but I'm so leaving it in there). Come walk/jog the 1 mile fun run or you can race my Pil in the 10k. Watch out, he'll own you.

So drop what you're doing and go read about the race HERE and register HERE.

See you on the 24th!
