Have you been thinking about giving running a try but need a little motivation? Why not sign up for The Florida-Times Union 5K for Charity? The race will be held on March 12, 2011, the same day as the GATE River Run. (For more details, go to http://www.gate-riverrun.com/5k.htm)
This is a great way to start a new healthy habit that not only benefits you physically, but also supports charitable causes at the same time!
