Sign up today for the Run to Remember Memorial Day 5K

Since I work at Wicomico County Recreation, Parks & Tourism, I can even give you a sneak peek of the medals. Run like the wind to try to earn a gold, silver or bronze medal in one of five age groups. (Vanessa Junkin photo)

The fact that my new job collided with running pretty early on is pretty amazing.

I have been the assistant director of marketing and public relations for Wicomico County Recreation, Parks & Tourism for two months, and one of the earliest assignments I was given was to work to promote the Run to Remember Memorial Day 5K.

The race is Saturday, May 28, outside the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center, and it’s to support the Wicomico War Veterans Memorial. If you sign up by this Friday, May 6, you can guarantee that you’ll get a shirt. It’s a tech shirt, and the shirt design is the picture on the Web page — this design will be on the back — and you can also get more information there.

The race begins at 9 a.m., with check-in and registration starting at 8 a.m. It’s $25 in advance, $30 the day of the race, or $20 the day of the race if you have a military ID.

If you are my Facebook friend or follow this blog on Facebook, it’s likely you’ve already seen one of my posts about the event. The Run to Remember Memorial Day 5K has a Facebook event — why not RSVP now?!

Even though I’m basically a Twitter addict, somehow I didn’t realize there was a GIF keyboard until relatively recently, so I have been having fun finding running-related and fun GIFs to put with my posts about this race on that platform.

Since I’m a runner, it makes me even more determined to do what I can to help bring in a great turnout for this race. It’s for a good cause, and you’ll probably enjoy knowing you got a good run in before you head to those Memorial Day barbecues.

Visit the website for more information, or feel free to ask me questions. I’ll be volunteering at the race, and I hope to see you there.

Also, while I’ve got you here, you should go like Wicomico Recreation & Parks on Facebook and follow us on Twitter at @funwicomico.
