OK, most of us are in the same boat, make that gravy boat. During the holidays, we stuffed ourselves along with the turkey – mounds of mashed potatoes . . . hot rolls slathered in butter . . . pumpkin pie with mountains of whipped cream.
Redeem yourself starting this Sunday, Jan. 6, by participating in the Charleston Winter Series Walks/Runs. The second part of the series offers a 4,000-meter walk (2.4 miles) at 1 p.m. and the 8,000-meter run (4.9 miles) at 2 p.m.
All events start at 31st Street and Virginia Avenue in Charleston, and registration is at Charleston Area Medical Center Memorial Hospital.
Sponsored by the Tallman Track Club and the city of Charleston, the Winter Series puts on events in December, January and February to help keep you motivated. With varying distances and walks and runs, the Winter Series has something for everyone.
The final Winter Series event is Sunday, Feb. 3, with a 1 p.m. 5,000-meter walk (3.1 miles) and 2 p.m. 10,000-meter run (6.2 miles).
Same day registration for each event is $20. The courses are flat, marked and there will be traffic control at major intersections.
Runners and walkers who finish all three events will receive a hooded sweatshirt. There are no age group awards in the walk, just the top three females and males. In the run, the top female and male will win awards. The run also has age group awards of at least three deep, but 25 percent will win awards in big age groups.
