Despite what the fitness industry tells you, transportation is still the best workout, provided you leave the automobile in the garage and use your feet. And what if every time you jogged to the grocery store, former Miami Heat point guard Tim Hardaway trotted beside you?
Well, youd be participating in the Einsteina 5K Fun Run this Saturday at Peacock Park. There are no eggs and milk waiting for you at the finish line, just a high-five from the originator of the UTEP two-step, a sense of accomplishment, and the knowledge that all proceeds from your $35 entry fee will go to New Beginnings International, a nonprofit that establishes safe housing and educational services for local at-risk mothers. The race begins at 8:30 a.m. and is immediately followed by a carnival-style party that kicks off at 10. To register, call 305-801-9150 or visit newbeginningsinternational.com.
