the man run, plus a tip

Coming up this Saturday is what may be the best named event on Knoxville's social calendar for the year. It's also one of my favorite races of the year. It's...The Man Run!

Each year, The University of Tennessee Medical Center hosts the Man Run to raise money for free prostate cancer screenings in and around Knoxville. Last year alone, the proceeds from the race allowed UT Medical Center to provide over 400 free screenings. Pretty great.

The event includes a 5k race or a 1m fun run/walk. It begins at 8:00 am at the East Circle of the Medical Center. You can preregister and find further information here or do like I do and register on site that morning.

I love a good 5k, and this one is definitely a fun one. And it's for a good cause.



In other, entirely unrelated news, I heard word that AA Bondy is returning to the Pilot Light on September 14th. AA Bondy is one of the best singer songwriters out there, and he puts on a phenomenal live show. The show is listed on his myspace page but not on the Pilot Lights calendar (yet). If you like Americana, he's totally up your alley. Dig it.
