"We're not the running type. We're the slow-and-only-if-there's-an incentive type"
While I was racing across the country this weekend I missed the perfect event... Slothalon!
Forget the 5K, 10K, and what ever races. Sign me up for the .5K (that's point five) Slothalon! This event starts at Ben's Tavern and ends 7 blocks away at Arny's 2.0 (another bar). If you get winded along the way don't worry, at the halfway point there are donuts and coffee waiting for you to give you the energy you need to make it the last 3.5 blocks to Arny's 2.0.
There is a $35.00 entry fee which includes a beer to start your trek, all the coffee and donuts you need at the midway point, and a beer at the end for those who make the entire trek of 7 blocks. Oh! and you get a T-Shirt and a sticker too.
This event was the brainchild of the Minot Lions Club and is a fundraiser for the club. I'm really sorry I missed it. I hope they repeat it next year.
