This Weekend

There's a whole lot of running going on this weekend - Sunday in particular! We want to give a shout out to April, Becca*, Ericka*, Heather, Mia*, Morgan*, Sue*, Tara*, Maria* as well as Casey, Craig, Emilie, Katie, Kristy, Sam and Shane running the Maine Half-Marathon and Jen*, Terry* and Kate running the Maine Marathon all in Portland this weekend. You guys are going to rock it!! All of our best for a great runs to David and Mary who are going to be looking strong in the Smuttynose Marathon just south in Portsmouth, NH. We can't wait to hear about everyone's experiences!!

If all of that half and full marathon running has you inspired, head on over to the Peace, Water, and Wisdom 5K Race on Sunday at the Bangor Waterfront. This 5k has been organized by the John Bapst Student Environmental Action Committee (SEAC) and all proceeds benefit the BARKA Foundation, which works to provide clean water and sanitation skills to the people of Burkina Faso. Registration (t-shirt/number pickup, and registration for those who did not pre-register) is set to begin at 9:00 A.M. followed by a 10:00 A.M. race start for the runners and a 10:30 start for walkers.  Mainely Runner Anita is planning to be there - have a great run Anita!

Have a great weekend and happy running!
