Finish For a Guinness 5K

My dear friend Lauren lost her husband to ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. This disease takes an extreme toll on both the afflicted and the caregiver as it is often expensive to provide care for an individual with ALS and emotionally straining. This cause has also suffered from lack of support and recognition, until this recent ice bucket challenge. But we're runners/walkers, not ice bucket dumpers, so let's do this and help out a much needed cause. Here's the link for information and registration:
http://www.finishforaguinness.org

The post race event will take place at Old Warren Marina located at the race finish along the waterfront. At the post race event awards will be given to the winners and runners will be able to get free Guinness, Blount's Clam Chowda, review race results, enjoy some food, and live music.

    What a nice event. Running by the water, plenty of food and great people to share it with. Oh and of course free beer - couldn't turn that down.

    Can't find my M cap so I may wear a GAP hat instead.

    Race day tomorrow folks! Can't wait to finish for that Guinness, eh? For those who I haven't met, I will wear my yellow cap with blue block "M" (like my picture except reverse the colors). We'll meetup near the registration area. Call or text me[masked] if you need to. I plan to arrive by 9am, though I'm notoriously late.

    I have to back out of this one... Sorry! I need to go back to MA for the weekend. Enjoy the day, everyone.

    Just noticed the post race event. Participants get free Guinness (thus the name of the event), Blount's Clam Chowda, food and live music. Even more reasons to come out to this event! Also noticed that there are some serious runners who do this event including a Kenyan who broke the course record last year at a bit over 15 min. We'll be barely out of the starting blocks, lol.
