Now this is my kind of race.
The town of Boerne, Texas — near San Antonio — is hosting a special fun run on May 5 designed to test the mettle of those whose mettle is rarely tested: A 0.5K.
Raising money for the charity Blessings in a Backpack, the Boerne 0.5K is a lampoon of the typical 5K run, and the people who fill your timeline with photos at 6 a.m. of them prepping to race. Branded as an event for underachievers, the race will take runners on a beautiful 546-yard route over a creek. Before the event every runner will get a free pint of beer to prepare them for their journey, and there are even plans to make sure participants have the fuel they need to make it to the finish.
