Are you looking for an annual opportunity to run a personal race? Here’s another suggestion from the Earned Runs EVENTS list posted in the RESOURCES page:
April 2-5, 2017 (or later for first 2107 home games)
MLB OPENING DAY MASH-UP: any distance
If you’re a runner who also loves major league baseball (hey 2016 World Champion Cubs’ fans), mark the start of the season with a personal race, run, or walk using Earned Runs Bibs. Create an annual ‘ceremony’ to solemnize your team’s run at a championship this year with your own GOOD LUCK send-off effort.
If your start time is prior to when the first pitch is thrown in a night game, you can head to the favorite local team hangout afterward. Or if it’s an afternoon game, set the distance and start time to coincide with everyone’s lunch breaks. Each person can run the distance that fits their schedule, but make a point to wear gear and meet up to watch the game or commemorate the season’s start after work.
REQUEST BIBS now to have them available for a spur of the moment decision to participate in a personal event.
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. In 1978 I began participating in 10K road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health and longevity.
