"The Pay It Forward 5k/1 mile Challenge is not a race but a challenge to all ages to become more active and healthier. Many people do not participate in 5k or 1 mile walk/run because they don’t believe in themselves or do not have the money to participate in them. The goal of this event is to give the encouragement to the participants that they can complete this task and many more in the future." Source: http://payitforward5k1milechallenge.blogspot.com/
It's only a $1, which is kind to my pocketbook. A race that cheap is great to run with my kids. =) I hope Lane will actually stick it out this time.
On second thought, maybe I should just do the 1-mile run with them.
