You know those daydreams where the world is magically splashed in hues of fushia and turquoise, and everyone is getting along and rooting for each other, and hugging and cheering, and you think, “Why can’t this be real life?”
It will be, and it’s happening in Bethlehem on May 19, 2013.
Watch and see what I mean:
Worried that you’re not the fastest runner, or a runner at all? Don’t be. No one cares if you win, how fast (or slow) you are, if you’re wearing the coolest gear or what your body looks like. This is about getting active, being involved in a big community event, and feeling like an awesome Warhol-esque gazelle high-fiving the rest of the pack.
Truth: So many of my friends who’ve never run a day in their lives have already signed up for this. You’re not in competition, darlin’.
The Bethlehem Food Co-op put together a team, open to any and everyone who wants to join! Register under team name “The Co-Operators” and team captain last name “Marsh”.
If running really isn’t your thing, you can become a volunteer and sling beautiful pixie-dust (colored cornstarch, but we can dream) at the runners.
Hey, just register. You’ll be bummed the next day when everyone’s uploading photos of their crayon-colored selves to Facebook.
