I’ve got a great idea for you.
Tomorrow, December 15, at 6 p.m. is the annual Red Dog’s Jingle Jog in downtown Lawrence. It starts in the parking lot behind Kizer Cummings and makes a mile long loop through downtown. Come join us!
Here’s what you have to do: 1) Bring of couple a bucks to donate to Toys for Tots; 2) Dress in crazy Christmas gear; 3) Run a mile while you waive at people; and 4) Join the crew at the Dynamite Saloon afterwards to celebrate.
Or you can come donate, cheer, then booze at the Saloon.
The hosts politely ask you show up a tidbit before 6 p.m., so a quick group photo can be snapped.
The SF Marathon was nice enough to send me swag (Stuff We All Get) to hand out at this event — it appreciates Toys for Tots and runners who would dare wear Christmas sweaters and lights as they run. SO, I will give SF Marathon prizes to the first five people who find me at the Jingle Jog and tell me how beautiful my beard is. Yes, that is a requirement.
You’ll also get to meet the newest RTGF contributors, and they’re super. And if you’ve never met the famous Red Dog, I’ll introduce you to him.
