Super Bowl Sunday is one of my favorite sporting days of the year (especially when I think back past the Colts’ almost-winningless season to 2007, when they beat Chicago for the ring), and last year we started a new tradition with the running of the Redondo Beach 5k/10k ($35 for the 10k) in (where else?) Redondo Beach, California. My husband’s brother and his lovely wife (who recently added the world’s cutest baby — no, really — to the mix!) live just a few blocks from the starting line, which makes for ultimate convenience on race morning.
Aside from a minor snafu wherein I realized I mistakenly registered my husband as a female (thus causing him to win second place in the women’s division — oopsie), we absolutely loved the race and thought it was well-organized and great fun. We’re continuing the tradition by running the RB10k again this year. Won’t you join us, dear reader?
