5k Xmas

Yo, don't tell too many people, but it's cold everywhere else. We don't want to jinx it. But since our South Florida Christmas won't be so white, why not take advantage of it? The fact that we are still outside in tanks and shorts at the end of December makes Florida the envy of pretty much every other state and is the royal icing on the cake that is our "season." So let's make the most of it and hang out in the great outdoors. One way to get your Xmas on is at Santa's 5k Fun Run/Walk & Sleigh Race in Wilton Manors. That's right; they give you options. We recommend the sleigh. It's all about repurposing a mattress into a moving vessel, and we have a feeling this trend is going to catch on. And don't worry about making the elves jealous; while you're having a blast, you will be doing good too. The extraspecial twist on this superfun holiday-themed workout is that all proceeds go to the Broward House to improve the lives of individuals living with HIV. Santa's 5k Fun Run/Walk & Sleigh Race is Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Shoppes of Wilton Manors, located at 2226 Wilton Drive. Registration is $25 per person. To register, visit browardhouse.org/5k, or call 954-522-4749.
Sat., Dec. 21, 7 a.m.-3 p.m., 2013
