4 miles and a new t-shirt
I run several times a week. The thing I enjoy the most is when I'm done running! My second favorite aspect of running is the cool shirt I get each year at the fair run!
I get more comments about these shirts than any of the various Owatonna sports shirts that I wear. 'iRun' seemed to generate the most. 'running makes me happy :)' puts a smile on the race of the people that read it. Someone suggested a contrasting shirt to the purple one in the picture that would say 'while you were RUNNING, I was SLEEPING IN.'
This year's STRIVE Wellness Run is Saturday August 16. The 4-mile run starts and finishes at Owatonna High School. Medals are awarded to the top 3 male and female finishers in each age division. Advance registration is $25. Race Day is $30. Click here for full race details. Participants are invited to enjoy the attractions at the Steele County Fair afterward.
