What better way to work off the Thanksgiving day calories than running a 5K!
That's just what the staff did on Saturday, November 30th. The Ditka Dash was a 5K run to support Movember, a charity group that benefits prostate cancer and testicular cancer research. The SLOOP staff not only thought this was a great cause that we wanted to support, but just a fun way to spend a sunny autumn Saturday.
We dawned our mustaches and aviator sunglasses as well as our Ditka inspired t-shirts and hit the pavement! The weather was close to perfect for this time of year. The route took us from just outside the stadium heading south along the lakefront and back. Great views of the city!
Once we all tried to out-run each other for the best race time, we got to enjoy a nice cold beer. A very nice way to end a good run!
We are already planning to do another race in the springtime together so feel free to subscribe to our blog and check in on the fun things the staff is doing.
