Ash - Thanks for doing this! I really want everyone to come out for this. Please sign up. It's the only 5k in the state where the winners...in ALL age groups get FREE GASOLINE! Yes you read right. May 17th be there!

Plus, you can't ask for a better bunch of kids to support than the MDA kids.

Be there!

Ashley, when I first read it - I had no idea you were part of it. That's fantastic!!

I think I have reserve weekend that weekend. Even if I do, I'm going to try to get the center to work something out so that some of the reservists can do this race and still get reserve credit for being there. I'll do this race for sure, regardless! and I've already sent it out to my co-workers.

I'm weak for Chick-fil-A ,too. :-)
