Hey guys! So last year, Blaine, Josh, and I ran in the Austin Sunshine Run - it's a local run here in Austin that benefits Austin's Sunshine Camps. Basically, by running in the race you're helping to send a kid to summer camp who wouldn't be able to afford to go otherwise. It's really a very cool cause and the people who organize the race have been beyond sweet to me this year and have offered to give MegaNerds a 25% discount on their race entry! So, I thought - "Hey! Buff Buddies may be over, but I hear all the time from people still running and staying in shape so why not make a giant MegaNerds team and do the damn thing together??"
The race is Sunday, May 8th in Downtown Austin. If you want to be on my team, here's how to do it:
>Go here: https://events.com/r/en_US/registration/2016-silic...
>Click "Join a Team" on the right side of the screen
>Enter "MegaNerds" - it'll pop-up a little box that says "MegaNerds M. Turney" - click that!
>Register for the race
>Use the code "MEG2016" to get 25% off your registration fee
>Get ready to run!!
I'm running the 5k, but if you're looking for a bigger challenge, there's a 10k you can tackle as well! And don't worry about having to go fast or slow or whatever - we'll all go at our own pace and meet up at the finish line for a team photo!! <3
There are awards for craziest costume (if you're one of those amazing people that can run in a costume). They even have a special category for people running with their dogs - you can win a year's supply of dog food!
Alright, MegaNerds - let's run!!
