Join the first ever EDS 5K!

by edsuck

I love running and I love eating healthy, delicious foods. I also have a strong proclivity towards hanging with friends/new friends and giving back to this awesome world that we inhabit. Sunday, June 2nd I will be hosting the first ever Exercise Doesn’t Suck 5K at a park in Montgomery County, PA. Participation will be $10, of which every penny of profit will be donated to the Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative ( This is an organization that works to improve public understanding and apllication of healthy lifestyle chocies and nutrition in the youth of West Philadelphia.

We’re gonna meet up at 10 am and run/walk/skip/crawl 3.2 miles together. Your level of physical fitness is absolutely a nonissue. While this is technicaly going to be a race, camaraderie rather than competation will be the big theme of the day. Everyone is encouraged to go as slow or fast as they feel comfortable and myself and (hopefully) several other familiar faces will be back and forth throughout the “race” struggling right beside you. At the end of the race we’ll have a small picnic, of food so good, you would never believe it was good for you. We’ve all seen each other at shows throughout the years, so lets go hangout and do something good for our bodies and our local community for a few hours on a (presumably) sunny Sunday afternoon.

Email me at if you would like to attend and you will receive a confirmation message and the rest of the required information.  Bring 10 bucks cash to the park (that sounds sketchy),  and then we will have an awesome afternoon together. Space is limited to 30 participants, so no dillydallying.

  • This is not some fancy dancy, big production thing. I want a group of us to have a fun and healthy afternoon together, that is all. This is a test run for a larger idea, so the location information will only be given to participants. If this goes well I hope to have a much larger, general admission 5K, later this summer, but for now, yeah. Permits are expensive.

**Soupy isn’t necessarily gonna be there. I feel like I should say that.

Sound good?
