Suddenly, when all the champagne-guzzling and lavish feasting of the holidays dies down, we’re told to dream big, work harder, get fit and do more for you. The start of the New Year is full of these big, lofty goals that we set for ourselves and make good intention to meet. But procrastination is a temptress and sometimes these high-hopes are easier said than done.
The first step in starting your year on the right foot is making a practical commitment. That’s where the San Diego Resolution Run comes in, offering locals a chance to get moving in the fresh air with plenty of other committed participants who are also fellow members of the champagne-recovery program. This year’s 5K and 15K Resolution Run will take place at De Anza Cove in Mission Bay Park on Sunday, January 6.
Starting bright and early at 6am, racers in the 15K will kick off their 2013 in motion. At 7am, more racers ready to rumble can join in on the 5K race. Winners in each the fastest male and fastest female categories will receive $100 cash; all runners will receive a finisher medal. Things get weird as the 1/2 K Resolution Boogie Victory Lap takes place, encouraging whacky dress to meet whacky dance. Hop, skip, cartwheel, hula hoop and boogie your way down…no walking or running will be allowed. Bust your best move because prizes will include best and worst dancer.
The San Diego Resolution Run has become an environmentally-friendly event that supports the San Diego Roots Sustainable Food Project. For more information and to sign yourself up, visit sandyfeetevents.com.
