Ok Lowe’s A-Team! I believe we have April 28th off and April 28th is a special day. It is the 3rd annual Jay Cooperider Memorial 5k Walk/Run. Let’s see, who all does this include? Hobie, Kevin D, Kevin K, Sharon, Jen H (since she doesn’t work weekends), Stacie (HR…yeah do it), Nate. My challenge to you is to either walk or run the 5k (3.1 miles) or even some combination of both on April 28th. For everyone that participates, I will make one dozen cookies for each. For those of you that don’t know, I make really good cookies so you suck and you are going to miss out.
Backstory: The JCM5K is a race that has been run for the past few years to memorialize Jay Cooperider, a late athletic director of Purdue University and father of local runner Zane Cooperider. It is a big deal for me as the inaugural race marked my first race back after a long running hiatus. It’s a big deal for the Cooperider family considering it memorializes a tragic and sudden loss of one of their family members. Please consider. Finishing time, not a big deal. Caring about your health though is a super big deal.
If you want to participate but entry fees are an issue, then email me.
For the record, Michelle Trice has already said she’s in so she better be requesting that morning off!!!!!!!
This morning’s run was fun. More walking than running but whatever it’s only the first day back.
