Loudoun County 5K For The Homeless – My neighbor stopped by last week to tell me about an upcoming race he’s been very active in helping to organize. I promised him that I’d get the word out, so if you live in the Northern Virginia area, please be sure to check it out.

  • Do you prefer Saturday or Sunday races? ~ I love Saturday races!
