This weekend's annual Jon Martin Memorial 5k and 10k races are this Saturday in Bellevue. This is the 7th year for the event. SSG Martin was killed on Thanksgiving Day in Regensburg, Germany, of wounds he suffered Nov. 9, 2007 in Jisr Naft when his vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb.
This past Sunday I had the pleasure of running with Perkins firefighter Brian Hackenburg for three of his 26.2 miles in the Glass City Marathon in Toledo. I ran the half marathon in shorts and a hat, he ran the full marathon in 40+ lbs of turnout gear.
Or you can run until someone else's dog starts barking. There should be plenty of them this weekend at the Humane Society of Erie County's annual 5k in downtown Sandusky. Proceeds from the event help fund the furry friends of the shelter.
This Thursday put your turkey in the oven and race on over to a local 5k. The Jim Hauser Sarcoma Foundation is presenting the third-annual race at Perkins High School. If you live closer to Huron, run on over to The Gym in Huron and race in the the Turkey Dash in memory of Judi Lively.
