Anyway, on to another topic. Thanks to Jason's idea of hosting a race around Labor Day and donating proceeds to SIDS research, Jen and I actually considered making a quick trip to Iowa City to participate. Well, we quickly learned that it was cost prohibitive to do that so we thought we'd find a local race to participate and donate the entry fee to Jason's race to add to his donation coffers.
Jen suggested running in Payson's Onion Day's 5k. However, there's no "fun-run" for families / kids or those not interested / able in running a 5k. Here are the likely options.
*Friday, August 31: Under the Blue Moon, 5k ($20) and kid's run (free); 7:30pm 5k and 8:30pm kid's run in Eagle Mountain; http://runnercard.com/e/runner.Main?meet=4264
*Monday, Sept. 3: Onion Days; 5k, 10k; $20; shirt provided; 7am in Payson; http://runnercard.com/e/runner.Main?meet=4221
*Monday, Sept. 3: T-Wolf Trot: 5k ($10), kid's run ($5); shirt $5 extra; 8am in Orem; http://www.runtwolf.com/t-wolf-trot-2012.html
*Saturday, Sept. 8: Run in Rhythm: 5k (free!), kids run (free!); 8:30 am UofU; http://healthsciences.utah.edu/carma/education/5K/index.html
Our preference is one that has a kids run. There are other options (http://www.utahrunning.com/calendar), but they vary considerably in price and options.
Jen's brother's wife's sister (got it?) designed a shirt for us and we're probably going to use the graphic as an iron-on for t-shirts. The graphic is shown below. If you're interested in a shirt, we can 1) make it and send it to you, 2) send you the iron-on, or 3) send you the digital graphic so you can make / print your own. Our plan is to use white t-shirts as the base and iron-on the graphic in purple. If you have us make the shirt for you, expect to pay $5-6 per shirt.
