Run Off Some Calories: Junior League Jog 5K

Full disclosure: I’m a member of the Junior League, so please excuse this plug. The Junior League supports a lot of causes I believe in– Kids in the Kitchen, for example, which teaches kids good eating habits– and this is a great fundraiser for their efforts!
