JOIN US FOR THE SAINTS 5K Kickoff Run

Football season is here and the Saints play tomorrow night. That also means we are exactly 1 month away from the Saints 5k. The Saints 5k http://nflrunseries.com/Saints/ is September 12th. It’s a great time for an awesome charity, the Louisiana Children’s Museum http://lcm.org/. Yes. 5k is 3.1 miles and we are looking for people to join the Spirits/Turtle Bay team. We joined the 5k last year for the first time with 2 members and we are looking for more to come out and have a great time with us. The run starts outside the Superdome and ends at midfield by crossing the ¬†50 yardline. 5K veteran and Turtle Bay VIP Dave McIntosh convinced me to do the 5k last year as more of a dare after a few adult beverages. Maybe this year we will even get Brad Bohannan out for the run!

We had a great time, finished the race, and lived to tell about it. There is only one month left so start training now. If you want to join the Spirits/Turtle Bay team, go to the Saints 5k registration page and click “join team”. Look for Spirits/Turtle Bay and our password is Resurrection.

If you have any problems, let Steve know at spirits.steve@gmail.com. If you join our team you will get a Spirits or Turtle Bay Tshirt, whichever you choose and you’ll get to hang out with us for the day huffing, puffing, and panting for a great cause. Also, registration gets you an official Saints 5k shirt and a medal(if you finish). None of us are marathon runners so we are just out to have a great time. Run, walk, or crawl at your own pace.
