I may not be pining to be on The Biggest Loser anymore, but that doesn’t make my girl crush on season 8’s Shay go away. Imagine my excitement when I saw she was going to be at the Bluegrass State Games here participating in the 5K. (Oh yeah, Jared the Subway guy will be there too.)
Wanted to see if any of my Lexington-area friends would want to walk it with me? Here’s details:
Saturday, July 17, 2010
RJ Corman Railroad Group
101 R. J. Corman Dr, Nicholasville
This will be a 5K (3.1 mile) footrace. Walkers are welcome. Beginning at 8am, there will be a brief Opening Ceremony with special guest speakers, Jared Fogle and former Governor, Martha Layne Collins. The race will begin at 8:30 am.
Online registration deadline is July 14th. The registration fee is $15 in advance, $20 day of.
I tweeted Shay asking if I could have some of her time for a quick video hello. She tweeted me back. Not sure I’ll get to talk to her, but it’s a good reason as any to go for a walk. I would love to have a Skinny Emmie contingent represent!
If you can commit to this, please fill out this form below and I’ll add you to the list, and email further instructions. And if you want to run it, that’s great too! We’ll use the motto “run your own race” or something to that effect. Trainer Rob is going to do it with me, and maybe I can conjure up some t-shirts or something fun! Come on, you know you want to do it!
