Runner's Almanac - Day 18

It turns out Wednesdays are one of my favorite rest days, so no running today.

I have added two races to the "Races to Consider" section on the right. These are brand new races making their inaugural debut this fall. First, Women Against Gun Violence presents the "Victory over Violence" 5K/10K in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the shooting rampage at the North Valley Jewish Community Center in Granada Hills (the site doesn't mention that the shooter also killed a Phillipino postal worker on that day). The race will be held October 4, 2009 at CSUN. Interesting that the title is very similar to another Valley-based charity run called "Victory for Victims", a run that supports the Center for Assault Treatment Services, held in the spring.

The other debut run is in Riverside - The 5K/10K Citrus Heritage Run on September 26, 2009. The event supports "Smart Riverside Digital Inclusion Program" that provides computers and technology education for undeserved communities in that city.

Check it out!
