There are a few 5k's on the radar for the weekend: the Special Olympics Torch Run (Sat. @ 8:30AM in Raleigh) and the Green Hope 5k (Sat. @ 9AM in Cary). The Crystal Coast Half Marathon is also on Sat. (8AM in Morehead City).
And because I haven't reported on any new records lately... an Australian team recently broke the 100km team treadmill record, running a time of 5:24:10 (~5:13 pace). In the process, they raised tens of thousands of dollars for Kids Foundation.
I forget what I looked up that eventually led me to this post, but it was too good not to share-- 10 Weird Forms of Human Transportation. Two thoughts on this: (1) the PedalPub is like a "green" Beer Truck and (2) how long until Matt makes a CouchBike?
I was looking for a good picture to post this week... thought running superhero might produce some interesting results... and I wasn't disappointed... wonder what gym Spiderman works out at?!
