Running Man (or Woman)
You only run (1) when chased, or (2) towards snacks. Thats OK. Nobody ever said that you have to be a marathon winner to be a productive member of society. In fact, this evening you can swig back beers, win awesome prizes, and just enjoy your natural squishiness as others do the hard running work for you. A small group of locals who will be participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Nike Womens Marathon in San Francisco are raising some very needed duckets in a most unconventional way: Theyre putting a treadmill inside Coyote Ugly (220 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale) on Friday night, and are taking turns jogging until either someone collapses or the bar closes. One or the other will happen by 4 a.m. @body:Big 105.9 will keep both runners and watchers motivated with great music and giveaways. Coyote Ugly will be raffling off tons of great prizes, like Marlins tickets and restaurant gift certificates, and then forking over all the winnings to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on behalf of the very dedicated (and likely, sweaty) runners. Also, anyone who donates ten bucks or more gets a free drink from the bar, so tonight you can give back in the easiest way possible: drunk and seated. Laces are tightened at 7 p.m. Call 954-764-UGLY, or visit www.coyoteuglysaloon.com/lauderdale.
Fri., Sept. 7, 7 p.m.
