Out on a Limb

You read the title correctly. I have decided to go out on a limb. It's a small limb, but it's an effort to come out of the injury doldrums, and pique my enthusiasm for running. The limb I'm talking about is a race, actually. It's the Houska Houska 5K, a local race that benefits the Poudre Valley Health Bone Marrow Donor Program and the the Poudre Valley Cancer Center.

The event is run on the same day as the much larger Memorial Day 10K race with the initials BB, and like the larger event, many participants wear costumes at the Houska Houska. The event is family friendly, and includes live entertainment, good, games and activities (for kids), and a contest for adults, children, and dogs for the best costume based on this year's theme "Saturday Night Alive."

Initially, I was planning to register for the BB race, but with so little running recently I've decided not to push my luck with a 10K race. I'll be missing out on meetups with friends from out of town and a handful of others I know from dailymile, but I'm sure I'll know a few people at the Houska Houska as well. In fact, I'm really looking forward to it. I'll have to make some other arrangements to meet up with my out of town friends.

So, if you're in Fort Collins, and planning to run the Houska Houska on May 30, 2011 drop me a line or leave a comment. There's a good chance we'll see each other at the event.  The Houska Houska is a great race serving a worthy cause.
