Ultra Marathon runner Dean Karnazes is doing a “Run Across America” for the ever-so-popular Regis and Kelly Show! Along the way, he’ll stop at 12 schools across the country – one of which is Aiken Elementary of the Keystone Oaks School District. Yup – that’s right – a segment for the Regis and Kelly Show will be filmed right here in Pittsburgh.

You can even register to join in the fun and run in a 5K with Karnazes.

The run is for an organization called, “Action for healthy Kids,” and all proceeds benefit this nonprofit that promotes health and wellness for kids.

It is an honor that Aiken Elementary  was selected, and it’s sure to be a fun-filled morning!

This event takes place at Aiken Elementary School in Green Tree. It is Wednesday, April 27th, 2011 at 9am. You can learn more by calling 212-691-2200 or by contacting Aiken.

2010 Pittsburgh Marathon!

2 May

Today is the 2010 Pittsburgh Marathon! (I know, not because I run, but because I got up at 7am on a Sunday to drive my boyfriend downtown.)

He and some very good friends of mine are doing the Relay. I’m rooting for “Team WTF” – Witness the Fitness!

So, “Good Luck” to Mike, Eileen, Shannon, Justin & TJ! Also a big “Good Luck” (and KUDOS!) to ALL of my friends and acquaintances doing the half-marathon and marathon! I wouldn’t even make it 2 miles LOL!

It stuns me how fast some of these runners are!

Photos from the race are already up on the official website. You can also see your friends’ times on Twitter, courtesy of TweetMyTime, or, you can follow the #PghMarathon hashtag.

Here’s the official website: http://www.pittsburghmarathon.com/

I’m going to go visit my friend (and former “boss” ha ha) DJ Bonics from KISS fm who’s DJing for the Marathon at 29th & Penn Ave, as I await for my sweetie Mikey to cross the finish line. He’s going to do it even after he’s done with his part in the Relay!

Man, on day like today, I wish I could run! 🙂
