RUNNING GROUP FOR MOMS
There’s a new running group starting up here in the Lehigh Valley – Lehigh Valley Mom Run. It’s a running group for, you guessed it, moms! Bring your jogging strollers, or find a babysitter and catch some “me” time while fitting in some exercise. The first run takes place this Sunday, June 24, at 10:00 am. Meet at the main entrance at Trexler Park located on Springhouse Road (near Wegman’s Allentown.) Contact Christine at email@example.com with questions.

TIM & JERRY NEED YOUR HELP
You guys know Try Chips, right? Tim and Jerry have been at the last two St. Luke’s Half Marathon race expos handing out their awesome dried fruit chip snacks. Last year they put together a fantastic event called Try-All By Fire. It’s an amazing finish line event where participants get to the finish line and ensuing party (all-you-can eat barbeque, live bands, microbrew beer, campfires, toasted marshmallows …) however they can. The idea is to do whatever you want – be creative – and then share their journeys at the finish line party. It was a great time last year indeed! Well, Tim and Jerry are in a contest sponsored by Clif Bar – Clif Bar Challenge: Get Your Neighbors on Their Bikes. They are currently in 2nd place and need your help to win this contest. Please visit http://maker.good.is/projects/TRYALL and vote. You can only vote once so please spread the word.
