Funnel Cake, the State Park and Superman

Funnel Cake, the State Park and Superman

by September Summers - February 14, 2014

What do these three things have in common?

They all involve you lacing up your shoes and enjoying time with others outdoors.

February… a heart healthy month full of sweets and treats. Instead of buying the extra candy for your Valentine, treat them to a fun outdoor event where running or walking is expected and rewarded.

Saturday, February 15th:

Come out to the second annual Funnel Cake 5K this weekend with a generous late start time of 11 am. It starts at the Wells Fargo Pavilion on 43rd street. Run or walk 3.1 miles then treat yourself and your Valentine to a delicious funnel cake to reward your efforts.

Saturday, February 22:

Next weekend is the 2nd in the Shannon Trail Series, held at the San Angelo State Park FM 2288. Race will begin at 8 am from the Chaparral Pavilion inside the Park. You have the choice of running a 5K or a 12K on freshly marked and cleared trails.

If running trails is not your thing, break out your favorite ‘Super Hero Cape’ and come on over to the ASU campus for the Super Hero Dash 5K or 1.5 mile fun run. The proceeds go to AMBUCS for therapeutic tricycles.

What better way to celebrate February, heart healthy month, than to join the fun at one of these events.

Stay tuned for more information about local events and runs. Also, you can check out the Road Lizards for more information.
